2016 Coachella Lineup Includes Ice Cube, A$AP Rocky, Joey Bada$$ and More
Hip-hop is heading to the West this spring when Coachella hits Indio, Calif. once again. The three-day event, which spans two weekends -- April 15 - 17 and 22 - 24 -- at the Empire Polo Club, will feature more than 100 artists gracing the stage the lineup reveals.
On Fri., April 15 and 22, the Bay Area's own G-Eazy, turn up duo Rae Sremmurd, Pro Era leader Joey Bada$$, London MC Skepta and DJ Mustard are scheduled to kick off the festivities.
When it comes to the final day of the festival, Sun., April 17 and 24 is light on the rap features but Major Lazer, Baauer and Hudson Mohawke are sure to get the crowd on their feet.
This year, there aren't any hip-hop acts serving as headliners compared to 2015, when Drake closed out the event. The Toronto native performed alongside the likes of Nicki Minaj and Madonna (who can forget the surprising moment when they kissed?), putting on quite a memorable show with songs from his If You're Reading This It's Too Late album.
Rockers LCD Soundsystem and Guns N' Roses and producer-DJ Calvin Harris make up the headliners for Coachella 2016.
If you're planning to head to the Coachella Music Festival to see some of your favorite rappers, passes will go on sale Jan. 6 at 11 a.m. PST.
