Coachella has unveiled Travis Scott, Frank Ocean and Rage Against The Machine as the headliners for next year’s festival.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the two-weekend event will take place in Indio, California and the festivities will kick off on Friday, April 10, 2020, wrapping up on Sunday, April 19, 2020.

La Flame performed at Coachella in 2017, but this would mark Frank’s first performance at the festival since 2012. Also, the festival will serve as a reunion for Rage Against The Machine, who hasn’t performed at Coachella since 2007.

Last year’s Coachella was headlined by Childish Gambino, Janelle Monae, Solange and more. It was also filled with surprises, as Kid Cudi treated fans to a special guest appearance during his weekend two performance. Cudi and Kanye West performed “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1” off of Kanye’s The Life of Pablo. Afterwards, they performed “Reborn” and “Freee (Ghost Town Pt. 2)” from their Kids See Ghosts collab album. Kanye also performed his Sunday Service at Coachella.

The year prior was “Beychella,” which was made into a Netflix documentary titled Homecoming. The film chronicled Beyoncé’s HBCU-inspired 2018 Coachella performance. In the documentary, Beyoncé opened about pushing herself after giving birth to twins less than a year before her Coachella performance. “What people don’t see is the sacrifice,” Bey said in one of the voiceovers during the film. “I definitely pushed myself further than I knew I could. And I learned a very valuable lesson. I will never, never push myself that far again.”

Along with the release of the documentary came a surprise live album, Homecoming: The Live Album, which featured a remake of Frankie Beverly & Maze’s “Before I Let Go,” produced by Tay Keith.

The 40-track live album was released on all digital platforms on April 17 and went No. 1 in over 40 countries.
