Coachella is coming. It may not be held until April 13th, but the buzz is already here. The festival released its line-up for the two-weekend festival. A lot of familiar names are on it.

 

 

 

Beyoncé is headlining the second line-up of Coachella and is the first black woman to do so. Fan are hoping she doesn't have to pull out like last year when her pregnancy meant she could not perform.

 

 

The Weeknd, brooding alt-R&B legend, is also slated to headline, performing on the 13th and 20th of April, both Fridays. One fan found this funny.

 

 

Even though some complain that Coachella is known almost as much for its famous attendees and fashion than its performers, the line-up still matters. Two important additions this year have fans excited.

 

 

 

 
With Beyonce, The Weeknd, SZA and so many more inspirational black artists performing this year, fans are delighted to see more black magic added with Wizkid and Black Coffee.

 

Thank u Flytime 🚀🙏🏾

The Nigerian afrobeats star Wizkid made it big in 2016, producing and featuring on Drake's hit 'One Dance', which hit the top spot in 15 countries.

 

 

South Africa's Black Coffee is a well-known house DJ and producer, and is going to Coachella on the heels of a Las Vegas residency and a string of awards including BET Best DJ - Africa in 2016.

We know this year is going to be huge for black music, and now Coachella is bringing African musicians to an even wider audience. We would definitely grab some Coachella tickets if we could!
