The 2017 edition of Coachella Festival will happen on April 14-16 and April 21-23.
Spanning the two weekends of April 14th-16th and April 21st-23rd, Coachella returns for its 18th edition and will once again be held at the Empire Polo Field in Indio, California.
The organisers announced on Tuesday (January 3rd) that its landed a superstar name for the Saturday nights in the shape of Beyonce, who released her lauded album Lemonade less than a year ago. While she's helped her husband Jay-Z headline, and then appearing with her younger sister Solange during her slot in 2014, Bey has never played the festival in her own right.
The summer starts here.
It's always assumed that Summer is the season for music festivals, despite the fact that many continue well into the Fall and, indeed, begin very early in the Spring; SXSW, for example, has already been and gone. So what does April and May have in store ahead of the official Summer months?
Just a little reminder that music festival season is well under way, the Spring has fallen and with it come numerous fun events and all before we even get halfway into the year.

The group's living members will reportedly take the stage at the festival, but will there be an Eazy-E hologram?
N.W.A. are set to reunite at this year’s Coachella festival, according to former member Ice Cube. The rapper is listed as performing at the festival as a solo artist, but has said he’s going to try and bring the members of N.W.A. together, to give the crowd a 'history lesson'.
Ice Cube has said N.W.A. will reunite at Coachella.
"I've got some tricks up my sleeves,” Ice Cube said. “I'm going to try to bring the members of NWA together. Give everybody a little history lesson on Ice Cube and NWA, West Side Connection, everything I've been doing over the years.”

The 'Twilight' actor was spotted in the audience with friend Katy Perry.
Robert Pattinson headed to the desert on Saturday night, to support his rumoured fiancée FKA Twigs as she made her Coachella debut. The Twilight star was spotted in the audience enjoying his girlfriend’s set along with friends including singer Katy Perry.
FKA Twigs has been dating the Twilight actor since last summer.
Although he tried to blend in with the crowd, fans and media in attendance couldn’t help but spot Robert proudly watching his girlfriend on Saturday evening. The Twilight star was dressed down for the occasion, wearing one of his trademark beanie hats with a light grey t-shirt and blue jeans.
Coachella 2015 brings some fantastic artists - new and old - to Indio, California.
It's that time of year again as the full line-up announcement for Coachella 2015 arrives following some spectacular headliners: AC/DC, Jack White and Drake will all top the bills at the two-weekend event in April.
Well known for its diverse collection of rock, pop, electronic, hip hop and indie artists from around the world, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is yet again set to arrive at the Empire Polo Club fields in Indio, California. Kicking off with the first event from Friday April 10th - 12th, the festival will repeat the following week from April 17th - 19th.
Stop us if you think that you’ve heard this one before - after pulling the remainder of his US tour, we look at some of Morrissey’s other excuses for cancelling shows.
Earlier this week, former Smiths frontman Morrissey came under fire from fans after cancelling the remaining dates of his North American tour. The 55-year-old left thousands of US fans disappointed after pulling the gigs due to a respitory infection.
Singer Morrissey cancels remainder of US tour
However, fans of the songwriter quickly took to social media sites Twitter and Facebook to point out this is not the first time Morrissey had ‘started something that he couldn't finish,’ having cancelled the same shows in previous years.

Selena Gomez has unfollowed all of her celebrity friends on Instagram, what's the deal?
So, what’s the deal with Selena Gomez’s recent Instagram purge? Almost as soon as she said goodbye to the Jenner sisters at Coachella festival, Gomez stopped following them both on Instagram. It wasn’t just Kylie and Kendall Jenner who Selena decided to remove from her account, she also stopped following on-again-off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber (we ain’t complaining there), alleged BFF Taylor Swift (that one was a bit of a shock, we thought the pair were really close), fellow Spring Breakers Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson, Reese Witherspoon, Zooey Deschanel and Lily Collins. Either some serious celebrity beef went down at Coachella and we just don’t know about it, or Selena is taking care of some personal business.

While she may have unfollowed a whole host of fellow celebs, she also took it upon herself to remove all trace of Kylie and Kendall from her Instagram account. The trio had recently been hanging out at Coachella music festival, and had all been uploading pics to the social media site to show us all what a great time they were all having being hippies for the weekend...before heading back to their Beverly Hills mansions. Kylie still has her pics of Selena up on her account, so it looks like there’s no bad feelings, at least on one side.
Canterbury four-piece Syd Arthur may have rocked Coachella 2014, but what else do they have in store?
After wrapping up a successful tour of Europe, this Kent quartet jetted off to the sun-soaked hills of Indio, California for its annual two-weekend, multi-genre event which took place last weekend (April 11th-13th 2014). Coachella may be one of the biggest music festivals in the world, but Syd Arthur are no strangers to the bustling music scene of the States following their recent showcases at SXSW. 'We play a lot of festivals, it's a lot of fun', vocalist Liam revealed in a video interview. 'They kind of range from the smaller festivals in Europe and the UK to bigger festivals.' Indeed, among their 'smaller' festivals back home, they'll be hitting Leeds for the multi-venue event that is Live At Leeds and will be playing their set at the Leeds Uni 'Stylus' on May 3rd, as well as getting involved with Brighton's highly respected Great Escape Festival on May 9th.
Coachella 2014 was littered with standout performances - but was ultimately marred by high profile disappointments.
The Coachella Festival has closed its doors for another year, leaving a bunch of sweating Californian hipsters and A-list celebrities to pack up and dream of 2015. Many had described the 2014 line-up as one of the most interesting and diverse shows yet - but did it manage to live up to the hype?
Arcade Fire Headlined This Year's Coachella Festival
"Who was Sunday's Coachella headliner?" asked the Los Angeles Times in its review of the festival "The band that played last, to wrap up the weekend on the main stage? Or the act that drew probably the weekend's biggest crowd, and certainly its most fevered rush of fans?"

Someone pulled the plug on Beck's performance.
Beck's microphone was unplugged as he was about to finish his set on the final night of the first weekend of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. The experimental pop singer was midway through classic track 'Where It's At' when suddenly his microphone was turned off.
Beck Was Left Confused After His Coachella Set Was Abruptly Halted.
"So 15 years later, and we are back for the first time, on the same stage, with the same band," he told the crowd only a few minutes before he was cut off. The 43 year-old performer then decided to entertain the crowd with dancing whilst he waited to see whether the silence had been the result of an accident or an equipment fault, according to the Daily Bulletin.

A day by day recommendation of this year's festival favourites.
Coachella Festival is nearly here, bringing with it one hell of a weekend chock full of great food, exciting entertainment and, most importantly, amazing music.
Arguably California's most eagerly anticipated event of the year, Coachella settles at the Empire Polo Club in Indio once again for the fifteenth year running between April 11th and 13th on the first weekend and April 18th and 20th on the second. It's not unheard of that a music festival was so good they had to hold it twice, but as of 2012 it has become a no-brainer for Coachella. In a nutshell, it is basically a big playground for grown-ups - though of course it is a family friendly event - featuring activities such as the 3 Legged Race, the Beauty Bar, the art studios, dodgeball and the almighty Pie Eating Contest, all while you're munching on a variety of cuisine from around the state and rocking out to some of the best bands you will ever hear.

Finally, the Outkast guys are back
It doesn’t seem right to be talking about the international headliners set to grace sun-drenched climes of Coachella 2014, not when January still plagues us so. But with Andre 3000 and Big Boi set to make a return as Outkast, there isn’t a lot else to talk about.
Andre 3000 and Big Boi are working together again
It’s confirmed: Outkast will be headlining the festival alongside Muse and Arcade fire in a line-up stellar enough to rival the world famous Glastonbury, which is also set to be headlined by the recently returned Reflektors.

Prince has finally decided that the internet is not "over" and has joined Twitter!
Prince has decided to grace us with his presence on Twitter. The elusive and technophobic singer, who famously declared in 2010 that the "internet's completely over", has finally decided to join the social networking site. Posting his comments under the name '3rdeyegirl', he named his account for the band who has been accompanying him on his tour this year.

Although Prince initially chose not to control the account himself (presumably allowing representatives to Tweet for him) he took charge on Tuesday (13 August), announcing his presence by writing "PRINCE'S FIRST TWEET. TESTING.1,2."

Was the switch anything to do with the poor attendance of Stone Roses' set last weekend?
It seems that Stone Roses reunion fever hasn’t quite made it over the pond just yet. After a disappointingly small crowd showed up to watch the Madchester legends at the first weekend of Coachella, Blur have now switched billing places with them and will headline at the second weekend of this year’s festival. However, the festival’s promoter insists that the switch was always planned.
Paul Tollet, the president of the concert promoter Goldenvoice insists “When the [lineup] poster came out, when we announced the show, each weekend's poster was different." He told Rolling Stone magazine: "The first weekend said 'Stones Roses/Blur' and the second weekend said 'Blur/Stone Roses.' This was planned from day one. It was a dual bill and we'd flip-flop them… There's not a chance I could take a headliner and demote them." Watching the Stone Roses last weekend, The Guardian’s Tim Jonze reported “There was something strange about seeing this most iconic of bands shuffling through Fools Gold to a crowd one-fifth of the size of Tegan and Sara's next door.”
Meanwhile, back home in the UK, The Stone Roses’ reputation is still very much intact and with a trailer recently released for Shane Meadows’ documentary about the band, enthusiasm for teh band's continued existence shows no sign of abating.
'Inglourious Basterds' actress Diane Kruger and her boyfriend 'Dawson's Creek' star Joshua Jackson enjoy a dance at the 2013 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival during The Violent Femmes' live set. The recently reunited rock band can be heard playing their song 'Kiss Off' from their 1983 self-titled debut album.
