Black Coffee and Wizkid are the only artists from the continent on the lineup.

The Coachella lineup just got revealed. Alongside headliners The Weeknd, Beyoncé and Eminem are artists such as SZA, Vince Staples, Migos, Cardi B, Miguel, among others.


South African house DJ and producer Black Coffee and Nigerian pop superstar Wizkid are the only artists from and based on the continent on the lineup. While that is great, we wish there could be more artists from Africa on the festival's line-up.

Ibeyi, French Montana and Jidenna will also be performing.

Coachella will run over two weekends, from April 13 until April 22. So, better start saving up.
