The performance times for the second weekend of the sold-out 2018 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival have been released. There will be a few changes from last weekend, both with regards to set times and a high-wind and heat advisory (about which more in a moment).

The biggest change is that performances this Friday through Sunday start an hour later, at noon instead of 11 a.m. By our count, though, that only impacts two performances — this Friday and Saturday — that began before noon last weekend.

The one-hour later starting time may be in response to last weekend, when the gates to Coachella opened at 1 p.m., two hours later than scheduled.

At least several performance start times have been tweaked for this weekend.

Pregnant hip-hop sensation Cardi B will go on Sunday at 5:45 p.m., 15 minutes earlier than last week.

Nigerian singer-songwriter Wizkid, who missed his Coachella performance last weekend because of reported visa issues, will perform Saturday at 2:50 p.m. He will be preceded Saturday on the Coachella Stage — the festival’s largest — by DJs Gabe Real and Juice Won, who were moved up a day this weekend after performing last Sunday.

Also this Sunday, Eminem will start his headlining set at 10:15p.m., five minutes earlier than last weekend.

As for the high-wind forecast, the opening of Coachella’s on-site camping grounds has been delayed from today until early Friday.

This follows a high-wind warning from the National Weather Service that went into effect Wednesday at 11 p.m. and continues through 2 a.m. Friday. Gusts of up to 60 miles per hour are expected, although the winds should begin decreasing late tonight, according to the forecast.

In a statement on the Coachella website, a message reads: “Please be aware you may experience high wait times… in your cars. “ABSOLUTELY no campsite set ups, no tent canopies or pop-up tents will be allowed to be put up until high wind has passed.”

Even after the winds die down, having a bandana is essential at Coachella. Ditto a good pair of glasses you can wear at night.

(I used my swimming goggles one year at the festival, and was glad I brought them. The dust and windblown dirt and sand at the festival can be intense.)

Bring lots of sun protection, too. The weather forecast calls for a high of 91 degrees Friday (when The Weeknd headlines), 97 Saturday (when Beyoncé headlines) and 100 on Sunday (when Eminem headlines).
