After previously teasing the festival’s headliners, Coachella has announced their full 2020 lineup. Travis Scott, Frank Ocean and Rage The Machine are set as the annual event’s headliners.
Ocean is one of the more surprising featured acts, as he’s known for his mysterious exclusivity. Fans were disappointed earlier this year when they thought he’d be headlining Tyler, the Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw. Instead, when Drake appeared as the surprise guest act, die-hard Ocean fans booed him off stage.
“Everyone thought Frank was gonna be there, but I never said he was or implied it or anything,” Tyler previously told Kerwin Frost about the incident. “Drake came out, and a couple of people were mad. Everyone’s having a good time, but there were a few people in the front who were just not fucking with it.”
With Ocean as a confirmed headliner for one of the US’s biggest festivals, fans are flipping out.
