For the Type-A planners amongst us, it's time to whip out your nearest diary organiser, or create the calendar event to distribute to the friendship group – Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will be returning to Indio, California across two weekends in mid-April next year. The festival organisers confirmed the dates have officially been set for the weekends of April 12-14 and April 19-21. Which means there's plenty of time to rally the troops, dust off the cowboy boots, relocate your glitter tubes and thrift a couple of desert-friendly lewks for the occasion (which, let's face it, is just as much about the fashions on the field these days as it is about the music and arts).
Organisers have also confirmed that the festival will take place at its usual locale, the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, California.
If this year's event is anything to go by, you never know what to expect from a Coachella weekend – from Labrinth bringing out Zendaya during his set for a duet of I'm Tired and Rosalía's MOTOCHELLA takeover, to Frank Ocean's polarising first weekend set, and the surprise headlining trio of Skrillex, Four Tet and Fred Again for weekend two – it's simply the music event of the year, and one you really don't want to miss.
Who is playing at Coachella 2024?
