Coachella 2020 lineup is set: Rage Against the Machine, Frank Ocean, Travis Scott, Lana Del Rey and more
Other acts confirmed to perform at the two-weekend April festival in Indio range from Flume and Run The Jewels to 21 Savage, Danny Elfman and Charli XCX
The reunited rap-metal band Rage Against the Machine, hip-hop maverick Frank Ocean and rapper Travis Scott will headline the 2020 edition of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival.
To be held April 10-12 and April 17-19 on the grassy fields of the Empire Polo Club in Indio, the music marathon will also feature such diverse acts as Lana Del Rey, Flume, Run The Jewels, 21 Savage, Charli XCX and former Oingo Boingo leader Danny Elfman, who has devoted the past several decades to scoring films.
Other confirmed acts for the festival, which was announced Thursday evening, include Lil Nas X, Carly Rae Jepsen, FKA Twigs, DaBaby, Megan Thee Stallion, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Big Sean, Disclosure, Snail Mail, Calvin Harris, Chicano Batman and Fatboy Slim.
The lineup also includes singer-songwriter Lauren Daigle, who is the first Christian-music star in memory to be booked at Coachella. Daigle will perform April 21, just after the festival’s second weekend concludes, at Pechanga Arena San Diego. Typically, at least several Coachella acts perform in San Diego and other parts of Southern California immediately before, after and in between the festival’s two weekends.
The complete lineup appears, in alphabetical order, below.
Rage Against the Machine headlined the first Coachella festival in 1999. That two-day festival was so under-attended that no sequel was held in 2000. Coachella resumed in 2001, after its producer — the Los Angeles-based Goldenvoice — was acquired by AEG, the world’s second largest live events production company.
Over the past decade, Coachella has become the most successful annual music festival in the world, selling out each year for both of its consecutive two-day weekends and drawing a daily audience of 125,000 for a total attendance of 750,000. Twenty percent of those attendees hail from San Diego, according to Goldenvoice, which tracks U.S. ticket sales by zip code.
The 2017 edition of Coachella grossed a record $114.6 million. That is the most recent year for which Goldenvoice has released figures. The 2018 and 2019 editions of the festival also quickly sold out in advance.
Passes for the first weekend of the 2020 festival sold out last summer during an advance sale, before any acts were announced. Tickets for the second weekend will go on sale Monday at noon for fans who registered in advance. Any tickets left over after that will go on sale Monday at 3 p.m. and pre-registration can be done now on the festival’s website.
General admission 2020 passes for the second weekend are priced at $429 each, while three-day VIP passes cost $999 and preferred parking is $140. Car camping and tent camping costs an additional $102, while preferred camping is priced at $266 per vehicle. Luxury camping options range from $2,284 to $9,500 for two people, per weekend, including festival passes.
More ticket information and the daily lineups for the 2020 festival are listed on the Coachella website.
