For Angelenos, Tyler, the Creator is as much of a local cultural icon as he is a global rap superstar thanks to his GOLF WANG store on Fairfax and even his own annual hip-hop fest, Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival.

But his headlining set at Coachella is nonetheless a pretty big deal—so here’s everything you need to know about his performance at the Indio music festival.

When is Tyler, the Creator playing at Coachella this year?

He’ll be performing on Saturday, April 20, during the fest’s second weekend (he already performed during the first on Saturday, April 13).

What time will he come on stage?

11:40pm on Saturday, according to the scheduled start time for the second weekend of the festival. It’s worth mentioning that there’s a 1am curfew (that the festival has sometimes cruised past).

What will the setlist look like?

We of course won’t know until Tyler actually takes the stage, but the first weekend’s setlist offers some pretty good ideas of what we can expect. “IFHY,” “Tamale” and his breakout hit “Yonkers” are among the staples of his sets, and they were all featured in his 22-song set during the first weekend. His last album, Call Me If You Get Lost, comprised the bulk of his first weekend performance, but as with his set at Camp Flog Gnaw last fall, there was a little bit of something pulled from all of his records.

What special guests might show up?

There’s no guarantee the same guests will appear during the second weekend, but for the first Childish Gambino performed with Tyler on “Running Out of Time,” A$AP Rocky came on stage for “Potato Salad” and “Who Dat Boy,” Charlie Wilson joined him for “Earfquake” and Kali Uchis appeared for “See You Again.”

Has Tyler, the Creator ever played Coachella before?

This is Tyler’s third time playing Coachella—though his first time headlining. He had a prominent slot at the Outdoor Theatre in 2015, when he notably had some choice words for Kendall Jenner, who was watching from the pit. And then he played the Coachella Stage—the same one he’ll be headlining this weekend—with a Saturday set back in 2018 (though he also briefly appeared a day earlier to guest during Kali Uchis’s set). Also, it’s worth mentioning that Lana Del Rey, who headlines Friday of Coachella, topped the 2017 edition of Tyler’s own Gamp Flog Gnaw Carnival.

How can I stream Tyler’s set?

The live stream schedule is up for Saturday, and you’ll be able to watch him perform on the Coachella Stage feed below at 11:40pm.

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

On the main stage, Tyler will follow No Doubt, who was given an “and…” headlining credit on the lineup. He’ll also be playing after Gesaffelstein on the Outdoor Stage, and at the same time as Orbital at the Gobi tent and Dom Dolla in the Sahara tent. (Doja Cat headlines the following, final night of the fest.) You can check out the full festival schedule for the second weekend below.
