The full and final Coachella 2023 lineup has been released, letting festivalgoers know exactly what’s in store for them when they descend upon the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California come April. As always, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will be repeated across two weekends (April 14-16 and April 21-23), with the exact same lineup on both.

As for the lineup. Well, it’s already speeding across the internet like a white Ferrari.

Frank Ocean Is Headlining Coachella 2023

Where has Frank Ocean been? The elusive singer has such a profile and history of quality that he has earned the right to be a bit of an enigma over the past few years. After releasing his second studio album, Blonde, in 2016, he has indulged in such a right. In fact, since his era-defining classic Channel Orange was released in 2012, Frank Ocean has put out a grand total of two full studio albums. As such, fans have been impatient, wondering when they are going to get some new music from the critically lauded singer, and it appears the answer just may very well be this year since he has been announced as one of three headliners on the Coachella lineup.

Coachella Goes Big On Reggaeton & K-Pop

The other two headliners, Bad Bunny and BLACKPINK are fascinating and no doubt controversial choices for the American festival, validating reggaeton and K-pop as two of the biggest genres in the world right now in terms of streams and ticket sales. Compare this with the safer choice of Frank Ocean, and it’s starting to seem like the Coachella programmers are gung-ho about the music industry’s cries for more diversity when it comes to who gets pride of place on the Coachella poster.

And The Rest…

Debates about font size aside, the rest of the lineup is looking like an absolute banger.

Some of the standout performers of Coachella 2023 include EDM big beat pioneers The Chemical Brothers, Bjork, $uicideboy$, Eric Prydz, FKJ, Underworld, Calvin Harris, Kali Uchis, SG Lewis, 2ManyDJs, Metro Boomin, EARTHGANG, Blondie, Kaytranada, Pusha T, Tobe Nwigwe, YUNGBLUD, Mura Masa, Hiatus Kaiyote, IDK, Fisher, Idris Elba – doing his DJ thing again – and Gorillaz.

Just because eyes are prone to scan over the fine print, we’ve included both the full Coachella lineup for this year in both forms – poster and an exhaustive list of Coachella acts in alphabetical order.
