Solange, Childish Gambino and Janelle Monáe to Perform at Coachella, Kanye West Bows Out
Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino, and Tame Impala are slated to headline Coachella 2019.
The 2019 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival lineup has been announced. The annual three-day festival is slated to feature headline performances from Childish Gambino, Tame Impala, and Ariana Grande, who will be hitting the stage on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, respectively.
The jam-packed lineup also includes Anderson .Paak, Blood Orange, Burna Boy, Ella Mai, Kaytranda, Lizzo, H.E.R., Khalid, Kid Cudi, Pusha T, Rico Nasty, Tierra Whack, and more.
According to a report in TMZ, Kanye West had been slated to headline the Indio, CA festival, but bowed out. After negotiations with festival organizers fell through over a disagreement on the setup, West reportedly called the stage "artistically limiting.” Coachella organizers Goldenvoice confirmed that they could not accommodate his requests.
At his most recent “Saint Pablo Tour," West performed on a floating platform, and last month at Camp Flog Gnaw, he performed alongside Kid Cudi in a glass box that floated above the stage.
The festival is on its 20th year and will launch this year on the consecutive weekends of April 12 and April 19. Tickets go on sale Friday at 11 a.m. PST and can be purchased at the official Coachella website.
