Beyoncé, Radiohead, Kendrick Lamar to headline Coachella 2017
Surprise! Film composer Hans Zimmer is also in the line-up
If you were thinking to skip Coachella this year, don't. Beyoncé has been announced to be one of the festival's headliners, performing on both Saturdays of the two-weekend event. Rock band Radiohead and rapper Kendrick Lamar will also headline the festival on Friday and Sunday nights, respectively.
It's Bey's first solo act at the festival although she has appeared on its stage in 2014 during her sister Solange's performance of Losing You. Other big musical acts to keep an eye out for are the xx (whose third album debuts next week), Lorde, Travis Scott, Bon Iver, Future, Empire of the Sun, Kehlani, Grouplove and DJ Khaled.
A more unusual addition to the schedule is multi award-winning film composer Hans Zimmer (yes, THE Hans Zimmer who composed for The Lion King, Inception and Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy). Even DJ duo The Chainsmokers are excited about it.
