For SoCal music fest fans, wishing for Frank Ocean to top the lineup has practically become an annual rite of passage (to the point of Camp Flog Gnaw attendees booing surprise guest Drake off stage when it turned out he wasn’t Ocean). Well, the Coachella 2020 lineup has landed, and Ocean fans, you’ve been heard.
As rumored, a reunited Rage Against the Machine will headline Friday night of the music festival, with Travis Scott on Saturday and, yes, Frank Ocean on Sunday (no word yet if Brad Pitt will be there, too). Coachella will once agin occupy two weekends in Indio this spring, April 10 to 12 and April 17 to 19, with identical lineups for each.
Ticket sales are a little bit different this year: Weekend one completely sold out during last summer’s presale. So festival passes for weekend two only go on sale Monday, January 6 at noon. You’ll need to register ahead of time, after which you’ll receive a unique code for the presale. Assuming ticket prices hold steady from the weekend one presale, you can expect an general admission ticket to run $399 plus fees, and VIP access $929 plus fees.
The rest of the lineup includes some Coachella repeats and festival circuit familiars like Calvin Harris, Run the Jewels, Flume, Disclosure, Thom Yorke and Lana Del Rey. Hip-hop is well-represented with the likes of Lil Nas X (pulling double duty with his slot at Stagecoach), Megan Thee Stallion, BROCKHAMPTON, 21 Savage, DaBaby, Lil Uzi Vert and collective 88Rising’s Double Happiness show. Dig through the rest of the lineup and you’ll find everything from Carly Rae Jepsen, Charli XCX and Princess Nokia to hologram pop star Hatsune Miku and K-pop boy band BIGBANG. And in true Coachella fashion, there we can’t help but smile at some of the out-of-left-field inclusions, in particular Fatboy Slim and Danny Elfman (here’s hoping he can match Hans Zimmer’s 2017 set).
