UPDATE: Coachella's set times are out now, and Arcade Fire is indeed playing a last-minute set on Friday (4/15) at 6:45 PM on the Mojave Stage!


Original post...

Today (4/14) is Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler's birthday (happy birthday, Win!) and he's spending it in Indio, CA, where Coachella is about to begin its first edition since 2019. We're not sure exactly what Win is doing at the festival -- is he doing a surprise set, either with Arcade Fire or as DJ Window 98? Is he just there to enjoy himself? This weekend's set times haven't dropped yet; perhaps when they do, they'll solve the mystery. Stay tuned.

Arcade Fire just announced they'd be replacing Foo Fighters on the Osheaga lineup, and their anticipated new album WE is due out May 6 (pre-order on white vinyl).
