INDIO, CALIFORNIA: It is now formally here! Coachella‘s production company, Goldenvoice, has announced the 2023 roster for the event, which will take place in Indio, California, and will feature some of the biggest musicians to rock the house. Causing a stir among music fans, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival information is now available.
Speaking about Coachella, the horrible global pandemic forced the iconic desert festival to move its customary date from April to October 2020. Originally scheduled for April 2021, it was later moved to October 2021, but that date was postponed yet again. Coachella returned in 2022 despite challenges after the festivals were postponed in 2020 and 2021 due to Covid-19. One of the largest music festivals in the world, Coachella, sells out 125,000 tickets every day. However, the performance will go on this year, and it looks like it will be a ton of fun!
When and where will Coachella 2023 take place?
The Empire Polo Club in Indio will host the two-weekend extravaganza on April 14-16 and April 21-23. Along with the aforementioned headliners, the two weekends in Indio will see artists like Calvin Harris, Burna Boy, Becky G, Metro Boomin, Pusha T, Idris Elba, Rosalía, the Kid LAROI, Charli XCX, EARTHGANG; Shenseea, Björk, Kali Uchis, A Boogie (Wit Da Hoodie), Latto, GloRilla, Rae Sremmurd, Noname, Fousheé, Pi’erre Bourne, and many more.
Online fake lineups have been circulating, one of which said Justin Bieber would perform. According to sources, Bieber was approached but declined because he wanted to concentrate on his album. We’re informed there’s a strong probability he’ll do it in 2024.
Gorillaz, Metro Boomin, Pusha T, and more artists will perform throughout the day on Friday before Bad Bunny takes the stage. Day 1 will also see the arrival of DJ Idris Elba, who will entertain the crowd.
BLACKPINK will be the headliner on Saturday, with other acts including Rosala, The Kid LAROI, and Charli XCX, to mention a few. Sunday, January 15, will mark the arrival of Frank Ocean, who will be performing on the desert stage for the first time. For those who are unaware, he was scheduled to headline the 2020 concert before it was canceled. Aside from Frank, Sunday’s lineup includes Björk, Dominic Fike, Latto, Rae Sremmurd, and many more, as reported by TMZ.
Because of Coachella’s fame, tickets are in high demand and must be obtained fast. On June 17, Friday at 10 am PT, Coachella will begin selling advance tickets. On the official Coachella website, they are for sale. You will then be transferred from the Coachella website to AXS, where you must register for or update your AXS account in order to proceed. You can get your advance tickets from there.
The festival offers several different pass choices, each with a different price. The price for a general admission ticket in Tiers 1 and 3 is $499, $549, and $599, respectively. For additional costs, numerous shuttle and camping passes are also offered. There are also VIP passes available, with Tier 1 costing $1,069 and Tier 2 costing $1,269, reported The Sun.
Honchos working behind the scenes of the two-weekend festival have experienced some snags in recent years despite putting up a wonderful display more recently. You may remember that there was some controversy around the replacement act after Kanye West pulled out of the event a week before the festival started. The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia abruptly replaced Kanye West as the headliner, in addition to a number of layoffs, furloughs, shortened hours, and pay cuts. Travis Scott was supposed to be brought out, but once Kanye pulled the plug, it didn’t happen as planned.
The performances by the German marching band Meute, the techno band Arcade Fire, the local band Giselle Woo and the Night Owls, and former Oingo Boingo frontman Danny Elfman, who delivered rock-infused and cinematic performances backed by an orchestra, were some of the highlights of the 2022 festival. Harry Styles also brought out country star Shania Twain for Weekend 1 and Lizzo for Weekend 2. Following the cancellation of the festivals in 2020 and 2021 due to Covid-19, Coachella made a comeback that year but with difficulties, as reported by MNS.
