Since 1999, everyone from Birkenstock clad hippies to Everclear guzzling frat boys has congregated in Indo, California for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. That’s because Coachella has something to offer for nearly everyone, as it’s one of the most musically diverse festivals in the world. Coachella isn’t skimping on Hip Hop this year, as Kanye West will headline the third day (April 17th) alongside garage rockers The Strokes. Nas & Damian Marley, Wiz Khalifa, and “The Based God” Lil B will also take stage…hopefully Lil B doesn’t run into Kanye West, or somebody’s gonna get raped!
In addition, vocalist like Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, and Raphael Saadiq will also perform during the spring music festival. Another highlight of this year’s festival is the wide array of deejay and electro sets sets. Among noteworthy acts include The Chemical Brothers, Chromeo, DJ Hype, DJ Kentaro, DJ Marky, DJ Zinc, Laidback Luke. The full line-up is listed below.
