The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival returns to Indio, California, for two weekends in April (15-17 and 22-24). Last week, the New York Times confirmed both LCD Soundsystem and Guns N’ Roses would reunite at the festival. Tonight, Coachella revealed its full 2016 lineup, with a few of our favorite artists on the bill.

South African house DJ and producer Black Coffee is confirmed for a Friday slot, though he’s reported to have confirmed his rumored Coachella appearance in September. He’ll be joined on Day 1 by French-Cuban twin sisters Naomi and Lisa-Kaindé of Ibeyi and Kinshasa's Mbongwana Star. Mercury Prize-winning Scottish / Liberian / Nigerian trio Young Fathers will hit the stage on Sunday.

Check out the full Coachella 2016 lineup and watch our Okayafrica TV episodes with Ibeyi, Young Fathers and Black Coffee below.
