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.
