The lineup for the 2019 Coachella Music and Arts Festival has been announced and it’s shaping up to be epic.

Ariana Grande, Tame Impala, and Childish Gambino will headline.

Singer-songwriter and producer Kevin Parker, the front man  for Tame Impala; and rapper Gambino — whose real name is Donald Glover — are set to perform twice at the annual music extravaganza, which will be held between April 12 and April 14 and April 19 and April 21 in Indio, California.

Grande is set to perform on both Sundays, Kevin and Co. on both Saturdays and Gambino will appear on both Fridays.

Sharing her excitement about the headline slot on Twitter, she wrote: “Humbled and excited  as hell Coachella. Thank u.”

The “Thank U, Next” hitmaker is no stranger to the festival.

Last year, the superstar made a surprise appearance during Kygo’s set to perform what was then her new single, “No Tears Left To Cry” for her debut at the world-famous event.

BLACKPINK will become the first all-female K-Pop group to perform at Coachella.

Also on the bill this year are The 1975, Janelle Monae, Solange and Weezer.

It was recently reported that Kanye West was set to perform, but the “All Day” rapper allegedly pulled out because the staging was “artistically limiting.”

2018 saw Beyoncé, Eminem, and The Weeknd headline. The “Halo” hitmaker reunited with her Destiny’s Child bandmates Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland to perform a show-stopping surprise medley during the singer’s headline slot – comprised of “Lose My Breath,” “Say My Name” and “Soldier” — for their first live performance together in three years.

Tickets for Coachella go on sale on Friday, Jan. 4, 2109.
