Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, Future and More to Perform at 2017 Coachella
The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival unveils its 2017 lineup, which as usual boasts a plethora of big names. Kendrick Lamar, Future, Travis Scott and many more will perform at the April event.
Other hip-hop acts include ScHoolboy Q, Lil Uzi Vert, Mac Miller, Gucci Mane, Raury, Denzel Curry and Tory Lanez. Additionally, the festival's non-rap headliners are Beyoncé and Radiohead. You can check out the full roster by checking out the festival flyer above.
It was first rumored back in November that K. Dot and Beyoncé would headline the annual California concert. Of course, Kendrick made a surprise appearance at Coachella 2016 during Anderson .Paak’s set. Meanwhile, Beyoncé is going to make her first-ever appearance at the famous Golden State festival.
While there are plenty of rappers performing at Coachella 2017, there's one that definitely stands out amongst the pack. Hip-hop fans will be happy to know that Kendrick, arguably the best rapper alive, will be headlining Coachella.
XXL's Sidney Madden recently spoke with the TDE artist about his appreciation for President Barack Obama.
“I think the world, not just hip-hop owes him,” said K-Dot. “We all have to give him his credit due for even allowing us into the building. We would probably never get inside that house ever again. Think about it like that. Rick Ross, Cole, Nicki Minaj, he really went for us to come experience it. This is something our grandparents always wanted to see..."
Tickets are going to be hard to come by, so grab them early. The festival will take place at Empire Polo Field in Indio, Calif. The event spans two weekends, from April 14 to 16 and April 21 to 23.
