We are still a solid six months away from Coachella 2017, but it is never too early to start planning. Especially if the rumors currently circulating on next year’s festival headliners are true. According to a source from the festival, who spoke with Consequence of Sound, Coachella 2017 will feature the seriously stellar trio of Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar and Radiohead as the weekend’s main acts.
All three artists released albums this past year (Lemonade, Untitled Unmastered and A Moon Shaped Pool respectively), so each of these sets will feature some fresh material. Radiohead have headlined the festival twice in the past, but it will make for some major debuts for Beyoncé and Kendrick. Queen Bey has only appeared in surprise performances, never having played a set of her own, while Kendrick’s last appearances at the festival were long before he was worthy of making it to the main stage. Stay tuned to see who else will play Coachella 2017.
Naturally, we were at last year’s Coachella. Take a look at some of our candid shots of Kanye West, Tyler, The Creator and more right here.
