Coachella has announced the lineup for their 2018 festival, which goes down in Indio, California over two weekends in April (with the same bill each weekend). Friday April 13 and 20 is headlined by The Weeknd, Saturday April 14 and 21 is headlined by Beyoncé, and Sunday April 15 and 22 is headlined by Eminem. It might be the least indie rock-friendly lineup the festival has had in its 19-year history, in terms of the top tier acts, although there are plenty of gems lower in each day’s bill.

Friday’s other notable performers include St. Vincent, The War on Drugs, SZA, Vince Staples, Jamiroquai, Perfume Genius, Moses Sumney, Benjamin Clementine, and Fazerdaze. Saturday’s lineup includes Fleet Foxes, alt-J, HAIM, David Byrne, Chromeo, Chic feat. Nile Rodgers, Angel Olsen, Jungle, First Aid Kit, Alvvays, Django Django, Benjamin Brooker, Big Thief, Oh Sees, Hundred Waters, Priests, Bedouine, Mile High Club, and Cherry Glazzer. And Sunday’s other performers include Japanese Breakfast, Portugal. the Man, King Krule, A Perfect Circle, The Drums, Jessie Ware, Kamasi Washington, Ibeyi, Snail Mail, AURORA, Cardi B, Miguel, and Rolling Blackouts Costal Fever. The lamest trying to be funny band name on the poster might be San Holo (further research shows he’s a Dutch DJ).

Unlike in some recent years there are no new notable reunions this year. The full lineup is in the above poster.
