She says Coachella got a bargain
Cardi B has revealed how much she is getting paid to play Coachella festival, stressing that Coachella got something of a bargain.
Coachella runs this weekend (April 13-15) and will return the weekend after (April 20-22) at its traditional home in Indio, California.
Speaking to SiriusXM’s Shade 45, Cardi B revealed that she is making $70,000 a day (so $140,000 over the course of the two weekends) to play the esteemed festival.
Cardi deems the price relatively low because Coachella booked her six months, when she wasn’t as big a star as she is now.
“I didn’t realise that Coachella was just such a big deal like that,” Cardi explained. “I didn’t know that it was a lot of people.”
She also revealed that, similar to Beyoncé, she’ll be doing 10 hour rehearsals to “get it right”.

The rapper has since revealed that she has pulled out of Wireless Festival due to her pregnancy.
In a four-star review of Cardi B’s album, NME‘s Nick Levine writes: “From stripper to chart-topper via reality TV stardom, Cardi B‘s story is enthralling and she knows it. “This some real-life fairytale Binderella shit,” she informs us on ‘Best Life’. It would be impossible to divorce her story from this debut album, because in a way, the story is the album. The Bronx rapper’s incredible ascent fuels every fabulously braggadocious bar.”
