Beyoncé and The Weeknd Lead Huge Coachella 2018 Lineup

Start saving for that airfare.

Every last trilby-wearing tween celebrity, former President's daughter and your smug, smug US-based friends will be rubbing their paws together after this morning's Coachella festival lineup announcement. Running over two weekends from April 13–22, the Californian festival has delivered their usual jaw-dropper of a lineup — even if we did already know one of the headliners.

After withdrawing from the 2017 festival upon announcing her pregnancy, Beyoncé will take to the stage in 2018, and she has The Weeknd and Eminem as big-name company. Elsewhere, a bonafide metric fucktonne of squealworthy buds fill out the rest of the bill — HAIM, St Vincent, SZA, alt-J, Fleet Foxes, Tyler the Creator, The War on Drugs, David Byrne and even Jamiroquai, to name a few.

Homegrown Aussie legends heading over and representing include Vance Joy, Alison Wonderland, Tash Sultana and Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever.

Anyway, let's be honest, you haven't truly read any of those words — you'll be wanting this:

Coachella runs over two weekends, from April 13-15 and 20-22 in Indio, California. Tickets go on sale at 11am PST on Wednesday, January 3. For more info, visit coachella.com.
