The Internet speculated that the three artists would headline the festival, based on unconfirmed reports that circulated last fall.
Coachella 2017 marks both Kendrick Lamar’s and Beyonce’s first time headlining the festival, while Radiohead previously led lineups in 2004 and 2012.
For its big-name reunion act, the festival tapped new-wave legends New Order, continuing Coachella’s tradition of featuring legendary groups who’d previously disbanded. In recent years, Coachella’s big-name reunions have included Guns ‘N Roses, AC/DC, Outkast, Pulp, Duran Duran and Pavement.
Among the lineup’s other notable names is Lorde, whose last U.S. festival performance was at Lollapalooza in 2014. The 20-year-old singer hasn’t released an album since her 2013 breakout debut Pure Heroine, so her Coachella date suggests her highly-anticipated new album may arrive soon.
Coachella passes go on sale Wednesday Jan. 4th at 11 a.m. ET via the festival’s website, ranging from $399 general admission passes to $899 VIP tickets.
