She’s played Coachella, she’s written a song about Coachella and she’s crafted a whole vibe that’s basically synonymous with Coachella. And now Lana Del Rey finds herself set to headline the first night of this year’s music festival.

Here’s everything we know—and a few things we predict—about her performance before she takes the stage in Indio.

When is Lana Del Rey at Coachella 2024?

She’ll be performing on Friday, April 19 of the festival’s second weekend (she already played on Friday, April 12, during the fest’s first weekend).

What time will she come on stage?

11:20pm on Friday—at least that’s the scheduled time for the second weekend of the fest. Note that there’s a 1am curfew (though one that the festival has sometimes cruised past).

Any news on the setlist?

We won’t know until she actually wraps up her performance, of course, but we can get a pretty good idea from combing through the first weekend’s setlist. The big hits were mostly all there in the 20-song setlist, including “Video Games,” “Born to Die” and “Summertime Sadness,” which make it into just about every show she performs (mainstay “Blue Jeans” was notably absent, however).

Though Lasso, Del Rey’s upcoming country-inspired album, is due out in September, it didn’t make its way into the first weekend’s set at all. And neither did “Coachella – Woodstock in My Mind,” which she’s still never performed live.

What special guests might show up?

For the first weekend, Lana Del Rey brought out a handful of special guests, including Jon Batiste on “Candy Necklace,” Jack Antonoff on “​hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have - but i have it” and Billie Eilish for “Video Games” as well as a cover of “Ocean Eyes.”

Sometimes special guests are the same between weekends of the fest, sometimes they’re not, so there’s no guarantee they’ll all show up again for the second weekend (it’s also worth pointing out here that those who were able to see a printed setlist spotted “Let the Light In” with Father John Misty on it, though neither he nor the song made an appearance during the first weekend). It’s also worth mentioning that reports have been circulating on social media that Taylor Swift, who was present the first weekend as an attendee, was heard during Lana Del Rey’s soundcheck, but consider this just a rumor for now (UPDATE: It turns out the special guest was tortured poet, uh, Camila Cabello).

Has Lana Del Rey performed at Coachella before?

Yes, way back in 2014, just ahead of the release of her third album, Ultraviolence. She’s put out a half-dozen studio albums since then, though, so this performance is remarkably different from her appearance a decade ago. Moreover, while she had pretty good placement in the lineup back then (the second-to-last slot at the Outdoor Theatre, between Neutral Milk Hotel and Disclosure), this time around she’ll be headlining the larger Coachella Stage.

Can I watch a live stream of Lana Del Rey?

The live stream schedule is up and the good news is you’ll be able to watch Lana Del Rey live at 11:20pm on Friday on the Coachella Stage feed below.

What’s the rest of the Coachella 2024 schedule like?

As far as the two main stages, Del Rey will follow Peso Pluma and Justice on Friday—and play at the same time as Anti Up and Gorgon City on the Mojave and Yuma stages, respectively, as well as Steve Angello, who plays the dance-focused Sahara tent at midnight. As for the other headliners, No Doubt and Tyler, the Creator top Saturday while Doja Cat headlines Sunday. You can check out the full festival schedule for the second weekend below.
