Beyonce, Radiohead & Kendrick Lamar rumored to headline Coachella 2017
Coachella 2017 happens April 14-16 and April 21-23, and, while the lineup still hasn’t been announced, a rumor on Hits Daily Double suggests that Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar and Radiohead are locked in as headliners. CoS says they have confirmed the rumor is true.
Radiohead have headlined before, Kendrick has played the fest (and made guest appearances at it), and Beyonce has also made guest appearances. If the rumors are true, it’ll not only be Beyonce’s first time booked on the fest, but the first time Coachella books a true pop star to headline (not counting rappers). And of course this is a good choice — Coachella’s lineups have been moving from mostly alternative music towards more mainstream music, and Beyonce has one of the best albums of 2016, and it features Kendrick Lamar, past Coachella headliner Jack White, and Coachella alumni James Blake and The Weeknd.
