We’re not the only ones who’ve never been able to get “Mooo!” out of our heads, right? But singer and rapper Doja Cat has come a long way since her days as a cow, infiltrating pop radio with her silky retro-futuristic bangers and becoming a mainstay of music festivals—including this year’s Coachella.

Before she steps on the stage, here’s everything you need to know about Doja Cat’s headlining set at Coachella this year.

When is Doja Cat playing at Coachella this year?

She’ll be performing on Sunday, April 21, during the fest’s second weekend (she already played on Sunday, April 14, during the first).

What time will she come on stage?

10:25pm on Sunday, according to the scheduled start time for the second weekend of the festival. It’s worth mentioning that there’s a midnight curfew (that the festival has sometimes cruised past).

What will the setlist look like?

Of course, we don’t know the setlist in advance, but we can look at the setlist from her first weekend performance as a pretty good predictor. For starters, Doja Cat toured pretty extensively until the end of 2023 in support of last year’s Scarlet, and like that tour her first weekend set was mostly filled with tracks from it. The 21-song set included “Tia Tamera” and “Need to Know”—but didn’t include “Say So,” “Juicy” and “Kiss Me More,” all of which are among her most frequently performed songs. 

What special guests might show up?

There’s no guarantee the same guests will appear during the second weekend, but for the first the Joy joined her on “Shutcho,” 21 Savage performed “n.h.i.e.,” Teezo Touchdown came on for “MASC” and A$AP Rocky appeared on “URRRGE!!!!!!!!!!”

Has Doja Cat ever played Coachella before?

Yes, and pretty recently. She had the second-to-last slot at the Coachella Stage on Sunday of the 2022 festival (which was itself a makeup of sorts for the canceled 2020 fest she was supposed to play). Tyga, Shonka Dukureh and Rico Nasty all shared the stage with her during that performance.

How can I stream Doja Cat’s set?

The live stream schedule for Sunday says that you’ll be able to watch her perform on the Coachella Stage feed below at 10:25pm.

What’s the rest of the weekend’s schedule like?

On the two main stages, Doja Cat will follow J Balvin and Jhené Aiko. She’ll be playing at the same time as BICEP in the Mojave tent, John Summit in the Sahara tent and ARTBAT in the Yuma tent. As for the rest of the lineup, Lana Del Rey headlines Friday of the fest while No Doubt and Tyler, the Creator top Sunday. You can check out the full festival schedule for the second weekend below.
