It is hard to believe a year has come and gone since we all enjoyed Guns N’ Roses at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival for 2016, but here we are ready to enjoy this amazing signature event for 2017. The incomparable Lady Gaga along with Grammy-winning artist Kendrick Lamar and the English rock band Radiohead will headline dozens of award-winning and world-famous musicians and artists as Weekend One of world-famous Coachella gets underway on April 14. Weekend One will run from April 14-16 followed by Weekend Two April 21-23.
You will remember Lady Gaga was the incredible halftime show in January for the Super Bowl this year. She is well-known for her duets with the inimitable Tony Bennett who is also her friend and mentor. Born in 1986 in Manhattan, Lady Gaga has had hit after hit since her debut in 2001. Chart topping singles include Just Dance, Poker Face, Bad Romance, Telephone and Alejandro. Her Born This Way full-length album was released in 2011 and sold more than 1 million copies the first week it was out. Arguably one of the Coachella Valley’s favorite performers, it is a safe bet that she will bring excellence and unpredictable surprises to Coachella. Never boring, Lady Gaga is truly unique.
Also headlining this year is the hip-hop recording artist Kendrick Lamar who made his debut in 2003. His critically acclaimed third album, To Pimp a Butterfly won him a Grammy in 2015. In 2013 Lamar was named “Hottest MC in the Game” by MTV and in 2016 Time Magazine named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world. His edgy lyrics and attention to social justice are well known in the music industry.
This year Coachella Fest will also welcome Radiohead, the English rock band that made its debut in 1985 and continues to play to sellout crowds around the world. Radiohead released their first single, Creep in 1992. After the release of their debut album Pablo Honey in 1993 Creep became a worldwide smash hit. Radiohead have sold more than 30 million albums around the world and have garnered accolades globally.
Expect to see plenty of other important names in the business including Lorde, Justice, New Order, Porter Robinson, Travis Scott, DJ Snake, Bon Iver and so many more. The fun at Coachella Fest never stops, as everyone knows who has been lucky enough to get there. Go out and make it a great week and enjoy the fun with all these great musicians and artists in town for the next two weeks.
