Headlines include Frank Ocean, BLACKPINK and Bad Bunny, while support comes from Gorillaz, Björk, Rosalía, Chemical Brothers, boygenius, Blondie, Pusha T, Charli XCX, and more. The annual music festival, as always, will happen over two weekends – April 14 through 16 and April 21 through 23 — at Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.

Tickets to Coachella 2023 will go on sale Friday (Jan. 13) at 11:00 a.m. PT. The festival almost always sells out, and chances are this year will be no different.

As for some history making, Bad Bunny and BLACKPINK will mark the festival’s first Latin and Korean headliners. Bad Bunny is also the first Latin artist to headline a major American music festival. Frank Ocean’s appearance is also special, as it will mark his first time back on the stage in six years.

In addition to the aforementioned headlining artists and performers, Coachella will also welcome Underworld, Wet Leg, Weyes Blood, Calvin Harris, Burna Boy, Kali Uchis, Porter Robinson, Labrinth, Eric Prydz presents HOLO, MUNA, The Kid Laroi, Yves Tumor, Chromeo, Kaytranada, The Breeders, Alex G, Snail Mail, The Linda Lindas, Mura Masa, Yaeiji Remi Wolf, Latto, GloRilla, Willow, Christine and the Queens, Kenny Beats, Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus, 070 Shake, EARTHGANG, Sudan Archives and more. The festival will also mark Julien Baker’s return as boygenius, plus a special live set from Jai Paul.

As for tickets, there are already a limited number of weekend 1 passes available. If you want to go, you’re best shot is at weekend two. Four-day GA tickets run $599+ and VIP tickets run $1269+. Some camping packages are available, too. For more information, head to the festival’s website. Tickets will also be available via Stubhub.
