It's just about time to toss on your favorite Boho outfit, pack your camping gear, and head out to Indio, California for this year's Coachella music festival! This year the two week event is scheduled to take place April 15-17 and 22-24.
Tickets for the high profile music festival go on sale tomorrow (January 6), and Coachella has unleashed the official lineup of this year's show to raise the excitement!
LCD Soundsystem, Guns N' Roses, and Calvin Harris are set for headlining this year's run of the festival. Although highly anticipated, the official confirmation marks the first time in 20 years that the founding members of 90s rock group Guns N' Roses will take the stage together LCD Soundsystem is also returning from a hiatus, albeit they have only been absent for five years.
Other notable additions to this year's Coachella lineup include Ellie Goulding, Sia, Zedd, CHURCHES, Major Lazer, Jack U, Halsey, and James Bay amongst others. Rising talents including the likes of Zella Day and Tei Shi will also benefit from the exposure to the festival's massive following!

The popular music festival is able to trace its roots back to a 1993 Pearl Jam concert; however, the first official event took place in 1999. After a year off, Coachella returned in 2001 and has been a mainstay in music festivals since then. Over time the event evolved from a single day event to a two (2002) and then three (2007) day extravaganza. Demand for tickets and impressive sell-out records led to the addition of a second weekend for the festival in 2012.
Over the years Coachella has grown and now proudly holds the accolade of being one of the most recognizable and profitable music festivals across the globe.
Tickets for the 2016 run of Coachella will go on sale on January 6 at 11 AM and are expected to sell out rapidly (found HERE). General Admission tickets to both the 2014 and 2015 shows sold out in less than 20 minutes, and current numbers show that GA tickets to the first week of dates are already sold out. Rumor has it that additional tickets will be added upon the opening of sales, though it is still expected for the festival to sell out in a big way.
