On Tuesday, TMZ announced the 2018 Coachella lineup. The headliners will be Beyonce, The Weeknd, and Eminem.

This year, Coachella weekend 1 will take place April 13 – April 15. Weekend 2 will take place April 20 – 22.

Kygo, HAIM, Post Malone, ODESZA, Migos, Cardi B, Portugal The Man, Miguel, SZA and Tyler, The Creator, will join the aforementioned performers.

Will Destiny’s Child reunite for an epic performance this year, now that Beyonce’s performing? Unfortunately, no. On December 16, TMZ announced that Beyonce is not planning a reunion with Michelle Williams, Kelly Rowland, LaTavia Roberson or LeToya Luckett.

So where exactly does Coachella take place? The fun all goes down in Indio, California. Specifically, at the Empire Polo Club, which is a 330-acre polo club in the Coachella Valley (which is near Palm Springs.)
