Coachella 2024 Day 1 live: Festivalgoers pour into the desert ahead of Lana Del Rey headline set

Gwen Stefani teases No Doubt’s Coachella appearance with behind-the-scenes rehearsal

Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival 2024 kicks off today with a highly-anticipated headline performance from Lana Del Rey.

The double weekender will also see headline performances from Tyler the Creator and Doja Cat. The second weekend takes place from Friday 19 April to Sunday 21 April, with the same artists performing at both shows.

Friday also features rising Mexican singer Peso Pluma, rapper Lil Uzi Vert and French dance act Justice.

Organisers and fans will be hoping for a steady ship this year after Frank Ocean pulled out of performing at the festival’s second weekend last year following a “chaotic” performance.

Asides from its reputation for drawing influencers, many celebrities have been known to attend the event over the years, with Vanessa Hudgens being unofficially dubbed the Queen of Coachella.

The festival will also include some must-see art installations, food and drink, and immersive experiences for ticket holders, which you can find out about here.


Good luck spotting our roving reporter Kevin E G Perry at this year’s festival

If you want something amusing to remind you why you’re better off at home, my colleague Kevin has revisited his painful past and written about the time we sent him to Coachella. Suffice to say, he didn’t have the best of time. It was, in fact, the worst of times:

Get ready for the flood of influencers… and maybe some music, too

Coachella, renowned for attracting celebrities and influencers from across the world, will also see Friday performances from Mexican singer Peso Pluma, South Korean DJ and singer Peggy Gou and US star Sabrina Carpenter – who has just finished opening for Taylor Swift’s Eras tour.

British musical stars descending on the desert also include British DJ duo Anti Up and Gorgon City, MC and rapper Skepta, and indie pop star The Japanese House, real name Amber Bain.

Daisy Jones & The Six star Suki Waterhouse, who recently gave birth to her first child with Twilight actor Robert Pattinson, is also billed to perform at the festival on Friday.

The British actor, model and singer confirmed she had given birth earlier this month by sharing a sun-kissed Polaroid of her cradling her child, who was wrapped in a blanket adorned with love hearts.

She later described having her first child as a “humbling” experience.

The return of Coachella comes after it ran into problems with headline acts over the last two years.

Last year, Frank Ocean pulled out of his second headline performance because of a leg injury, while Kanye West, also known as Ye, was due to headline in 2022 but the line-up was updated weeks before the event.

Coachella 2024 begins!

Lana Del Rey will return to Coachella music festival to kick off headline performances across the first weekend of the performing arts event.

The Californian festival takes place over two weekends from 12-14 April and 19-21 April, and will feature other headline performances from Tyler, The Creator; Doja Cat; and a No Doubt reunion with Gwen Stefani.

US singer Del Rey, who rose to fame in 2012 with Born To Die, will headline the Friday slot at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, having last appeared at the festival during her debut in 2014.

The Summertime Sadness star was scheduled to feature in the 2020 line-up, which was cancelled amid the Covid pandemic.

The 38-year-old hit the headlines last year after she arrived late for her performance at the BST Hyde Park festival in London, just weeks after her microphone was cut off at Glastonbury when her set overran because of her late arrival.
