The full line-up for this year’s Coachella music festival was just announced today (Jan. 10). Puerto Rican superstar Bad Bunny is headlining alongside Frank Ocean and BLACKPINK.

The report that Hits Daily Double published last week about the potential headliners turned out to be true. Bad Bunny is making history as the first Latine artist to headline Coachella. It will be interesting to see what he does for his headlining performance. Bad Bunny ended 2022 as the top-grossing tour act of the year. He sold out arenas and later stadiums around the world with El Último Tour del Mundo and the World’s Hottest Tour. 

On Friday nights (April 14 and 21), the day that Bad Bunny is headlining, Becky G is listed at the top of the line-up. Other Latine acts performing that day include Colombian-American singer ¿Téo? and rising Mexican-American star DannyLux, who will be bringing some corridos to the Coachella stage. Afro-Latina DJ Juliet Mendoza will also be spinning music on Friday. 

On Saturday night (April 15 and 22), Spanish pop star Rosalía is listed at the top of the line-up. Rising Puerto Rican rapper Eladio Carrion and Argentine band Los Fabulosos Cadillacs will also be performing that day. The Linda Lindas and Mexican alternative act BRATTY will hit the stage on Saturday as well.

Colombian-American superstar Kali Uchis is listed at the top of Sunday’s line-up (April 16 and 22). Up-and-coming regional Mexican act Conexión Divina and Guatemalan-American DJ Gordo will also be performing that day. Fans can register now at Coachella’s website for access to passes. Ticket pre-sales will begin on Friday, Jan. 13 at 11 a.m. PST. 

Bad Bunny’s Coachella announcement marks his first major media outing since stirring up controversy last week for tossing a fan’s phone in the Dominican Republic. In a statement, he called the fan’s behavior a “lack of respect” after they were forcefully trying to take selfies with him.
