The festival, which runs from the 16th-18th at the Empire Polo Fields, will offer up a hip hop star as a major headliner for the first time since 2003, when the Beastie Boys headlined. Marking only his second U.S. festival appearance, Jay-Z will be joined by Muse, and Gorillaz as headliners, fronting a stellar lineup that includes De La Soul, LCD Soundsystem, Wale, MGMT, B.o.B., Glitch Mob, Tiesto, David Guetta, Pretty Lights, Sly and the Family Stone, a reunited Pavement, and more. Check below for the full list of artists, separated by which day they are performing. The lineup is pretty dope, with a diverse set of headliners and an eclecticly impressive undercard of Hip Hop, Indie, and Electronic music. Just to give you an idea of what kind of spot Jay-Z has scored at Coachella, some previous headliners from the past few years are: Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, Paul McCartney and Prince, among others.
