This year’s festival once again spans three days over two weekends, April 15-17 and April 22-24, at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif.
Guns N’ Roses have announced the original group will reunite onstage for the first time in more than two decades. If the “most dangerous band in the world” is one of your faves, you’ll need to head to the desert to catch the group as no other tour dates are announced at this time. Also making a return to the stage is LCD Soundsystem, who disbanded in 2011.
Aside from reunion appearances, there are a number of buzz-worthy bands, and a fair share of women, who comprise the rest of the event’s lineup.
Here’s a rundown of who’s playing each day:
Friday, April 15 and 22
Headliners LCD Soundsystem are joined by pop singer Ellie Goulding, singer/songwriter Sufjan Stevens and Skrillex and Diplo project Jack Ü share a stage with such up-and-comers as Joey Bada$$ and Børns, but don’t miss the chance to catch Grammy-nominated veteran soul singer Mavis Staples.
Saturday, April 16 and 22
Headliners Guns N’ Roses are garnering the most chatter, but be sure to stick around for the spectacular pop oddity of Grimes and Courtney Barnett‘s smile-inducing and witty indie rock. The Saturday weekend lineup highlights also include former N.W.A rapper Ice Cube, Run the Jewels, The Black Keys‘ frontman Dan Auerbach’s side project The Arcs, psychedelic popsters Deerhunter, blues stalwart Gary Clark Jr., Halsey, Silversun Pickups and more.
Sunday, April 17 and 23
The man who claimed to have created disco with his debut album, Calvin Harris, kicks off a dance-friendly lineup to close things out each weekend. Helping to bring the throngs to the dance floor are Sia, Major Lazer and Miike Snow. On the other end of the spectrum, you can catch the jam-happy tunes of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros or the soulful, dusty sounds of country neo-traditionalist Chris Stapleton.
