Coachella 2017: Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar, Global Citizens to Headline Music Festival

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, known simply as Coachella, announced its 2017 lineup, and a few Global Citizens are set to perform.

Beyonce, who appeared at the 2014 and 2015 Global Citizen Festivals in New York, and Kendrick Lamar, who performed at the 2016 festival, will be headlining Coachella’s Saturday and Sunday schedules. 

And Martin Garrix performed at the Global Citizen Earth Day Festival in Washington, D.C., in 2015.

Coachella will take place over the course of two weekends this April in Indio, California, and features more than 100 artists and performers. The concert series began in 1999, and has showcased a diverse array of musicians from The Flaming Lips to The Weeknd. It has also included various art installations, theater performances, and other non-musical attractions. 

The indie rock bands Bastille and Grouplove, who are both Global Citizen Rewards partners, will also perform at the festival. You can also get tickets to Coachella performer Tove Lo through our Rewards program.
