Radiohead, Beyonce and Kendrick Lamar To Headline 2017 Coachella?
Usually we get the news much later, as the headliners for Coachella are never revealed during the previous year… However Consequence of Sound pretends to already know who will be headlining Coachella 2017: Radiohead, Beyonce and Kendrick Lamar! Is it wishful thinking? Because I would make the trip for Thom!
This would not be Radiohead’s first time at the famous festival of course – they played in 2004 and 2012, but this would be Beyonce’s first time, although she is often spotted over there, at some point, flying in her private helicopter or making a surprise appearance during someone’s else set. This is making a few people furious, is Beyonce really Coachella material? I have news for these people, the festival sold out a long time ago, and hipsters have to get over themselves.
As for Kendrick, that would be the logical follow-up to his headline spot at the FYF fest this year… Plus he has toured a lot, and has made several surprise appearances at the Indio festival over the years. He is incredible live, and Kanye is definitively out of order for a while.
Consequence of Sound seems to affirm this is really happening although they say that Coachella organizers haven’t responded to their request for comment.
May be it’s gonna be the year we will see very different people on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, as I don’t really see Radiohead’s fans truly enjoying the mainstream of Beyonce?
An official lineup announcement is expected o be revealed early next year, and, if it is the correct lineup, rock is definitely dead.
