Coachella Line Up 2017: Set times, live stream and more

The full bill for the 18th edition of the California festival has been announced, and it's rather exciting

Coachellaaaaaa! Yes, the annual Indio, California festival that much of the rest of the world casts an envious eye at whenever April rolls around has announced the line-up for its 18th edition and – well, wow.

The full line-up announcement back in January revealed a whole host of brilliant bands and artists who are set to perform across Coachella’s double-weekender in the Spring, spanning from colossal headliners (including Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar) to must-see acts (Lorde, Mac DeMarco, The Avalanches), as well as a strong contingent of new British stars (Stormzy, Blossoms, Mura Musa).

Let’s take stock of everything we now know about the Coachella 2017 line-up and details about this year’s festival.

When is Coachella 2017?

Coachella 2017 will be held, as ever, on two weekends: April 14-16 and April 21-23 2017. The festival takes place at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.

Who is headlining Coachella 2017?

Coachella’s three headliners this year are, to put it bluntly, quite sensational. Let’s dive straight in.

Friday – Radiohead

Who: Thom Yorke’s merry Oxford band, who will mark their third headline appearance at Coachella in 2017.
Why you need to watch them: What better way to soothe the sure-to-be woes of Trump’s first few months in office than by basking in the mellifluous brilliance of ‘A Moon-Shaped Pool’ in a baking hot Californian field?

Saturday – Lady Gaga

Who: One of the decade’s most influential and experimental pop artists, who’s stepping in for Beyoncé who was forced to drop out on doctor’s orders.
Why you need to watch her: She nailed her Super Bowl half time slot, so expect her slot in the desert to be similarly bombastic experience.

Sunday – Kendrick Lamar

Who: The Compton native is arguably the finest rapper alive.
Why you need to watch him: Kendrick doesn’t often perform at festivals, let alone headline them – but he’s making a special exception for Coachella 2017. Backed by his sensational live band, The Wesley Theory, he’s sure to bring the fire for this very special performance in his home state.

So that’s a lot of acts, right? Let’s pick five of the top non-headlining acts playing on each day of Coachella 2017.

Friday

The xx

Alasdair Mclellan/Press

After releasing their long-awaited album ‘I See You‘ in January, The xx will bring their typically affecting live show to their high-profile slot at Coachella.

Stormzy

The Croydon MC just went to number one with his stunning debut ‘Gang Signs & Prayer‘ in March, and he’s set to take his skills global with a show at the nation’s most revered festival.

Father John Misty

Expect wit, laughs and brand new material from his album ‘Pure Comedy’ when Father John Misty takes to the hot Californian stage in April.

Mac DeMarco

NME/Matias Altbach

Much like Father John, expect a charming performance that’s peppered with laugh-out-loud moments from Mac and his merry band of troubadours. The Canadian will almost certainly air cuts from his slightly more low-key album ‘This Old Dog’ also.

Bonobo

Brighton producer Simon Green is set to release his sixth album, ‘Migration’, sometime this year, so expect plenty of snippets from that during his blissed-out set – plus possibly some special guests on vocals, too.

Saturday

Bon Iver

The Justin Vernon-led band will bring last year’s excellent ’22, A Million’ album to the Californian desert for their high-profile slot at Coachella, which will likely see them open for Lady Gaga – it’ll be quite a pre-show.

Gucci Mane

FilmMagic

The reinvigorated Atlanta rapper has flourished since his release from jail in May, releasing a shedload of new material to keep his prolific reputation up. He puts on a mean live show, too.

The Avalanches

The Australian band made their long-awaited comeback last year, and will make a rare live appearance at Coachella come April – and, in making up for lost time, they’ll certainly be sure to bring the party to the Empire Polo Club.

Two Door Cinema Club

two-door-cinema-club-pressPress

The Northern Irish trio’s love affair with the US will resume at Coachella, where they’re sure to air plenty of tracks from their 2016 third album ‘Gameshow‘.

Blossoms

Perhaps the big question here is: can Stockport’s finest survive the baking Californian heat? Melting aside, this is a fine opportunity for the band to impress.

Sunday

Lorde

Lorde

The New Zealand star dropped banging new single ‘Green Light’ in March and a new album is due in June. Perhaps she’ll treat the Coachella faithful to a few new cuts.

Justice

2016_justice_press_171116-1Press

With Daft Punk seemingly not interested in playing at one of the world’s biggest festivals, fellow French producer duo Justice are more than up for the challenge – their set on the final day of the festival is sure to be unmissable.

Future Islands

The enthralling live band will be back with new album ‘The Far Field‘ on April 7 – so plenty of time for you to learn the words, then.

Kaytranada

16. Kaytranada – ‘Lite Spots’-1Liam Macrae

The Montreal producer nearly won 2016 with his soaring debut album ‘99.9%’, while his live mixes are a powerful force of their own – a must-see, and must-dance-at, set.

Pond

PondPress

The Australian four-piece are the ideal last-day festival band – forget that you’re going home tomorrow, and enjoy the sonic madness of Pond’s eccentric brand of rock’n’roll.
