Coachella, Bonnaroo and Boston Calling music festivals announce lineups


Coachella, Bonnaroo and Boston Calling, three of the country’s major music festivals, announced their lineups for the coming year on Tuesday.

Bad Bunny, Blackpink and Frank Ocean will headline Coachella in April. Kendrick Lamar, Odesza, Zeds Dead, Liquid Stranger, and Foo Fighters will top Bonnaroo’s list in June. The Foo Fighters will also perform at Boston Calling on Memorial Day weekend, along with Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Lumineers, Alanis Morissette, Paramore and Queens of the Stone Age.

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, the largest of the three, features all non-white headliners for the first time since its inception in 1999.

This festival will take place the weekends of April 14-16 and April 21-23 in Indio, California. Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny, Spotify’s most streamed artist of 2022, will perform on both Fridays, all-female K-pop group Blackpink on Saturdays and R&B star Frank Ocean on Sundays.

Blackpink first took to the Coachella stage in 2019 and were Time Artist of the Year in 2022. The group now has 83.8 million subscribers on YouTube.

Other notable Coachella performers include Gorillaz, Burna Boy, The Chemical Brothers, Becky G and Pusha T Friday; Rosalía, Eric Prydz, Suicideboys, Labrinth and Underworld Saturday; and Björk, Kali Uchis, Porter Robinson, Fisher and Jai Paul on Sunday.

Last year’s Coachella was the first since the festival was canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic. The 2022 version featured Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, Swedish House Mafia and The Weekend.

The cheapest tickets – which start at $499 plus a $50 fee – for the first weekend of this year’s festival are already sold out.

“For your best chance to pass watch weekend 2,” Coachella wrote on Twitter.

Bonnaroo, which takes place in Manchester, Tennessee, from June 15-18, has already sold out its cheapest four-day tickets, priced at $279. Single-day tickets start at $175.

Presale for Boston Calling begins Thursday at 10 a.m. EST.
