Frank Ocean was previously announced as a headliner for the ill-fated 2020 edition, which was cancelled due to the pandemic. When the festival returned last year, it was confirmed that he would top the bill this year.

BLACKPINK will be the first K-pop act to headline the festival following their first appearance at Coachella in 2019. Back then, they were the first female K-pop group to perform at the event. Bad Bunny will be the first artist from Latin America and the first Spanish-language artist to headline Coachella. He, too, first performed at the festival in 2019.

Elsewhere, the bill includes the likes of Gorillaz, Burna Boy, boygenius – aka the supergroup featuring Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus and Julien BakerBjörk, Rosalía, The Chemical Brothers, Charli XCX, Kali Uchis and the elusive Jai Paul, who rose to fame in 2010 with the song ‘BTSTU’.

Calvin Harris is also featured on the bill, while James Murphy’s Despacio soundsystem will be present “all weekend long”.

Festival organisers have also confirmed that Coachella 2023 will be livestreamed once again on YouTube, bringing performances and behind-the-scenes content to fans worldwide.

Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, Swedish House Mafia, and The Weeknd headlined Coachella 2022. In a four-star review of the festival, NME wrote: “Good times aren’t the only thing worth celebrating at Coachella 2022. The festival’s line-up feels more inclusive than ever, be that Raveena becoming the first Indian woman to perform at the event with a compelling set on Friday afternoon, or 88rising taking over a primetime slot on the main stage to showcase brilliant Asian and Asian-American talent.”
