Coachella releases 2018 lineup: Beyonce, Eminem, and More

Coachella's lineup this year is amazing, with headliners Beyonce, Eminem, and The Weeknd but the real money is mid-lineup.

The rumors were true about headliners The Weeknd, Beyonce, and Eminem, and it seems like Coachella is showing off who the major festival acts will be in 2018. On Friday they have SZA, St. Vincent, War on Drugs on second-line. Saturday there's HAIM, Tyler, The Creator, alt-J, Post Malone and Fleet Foxes. 

There is an important first this year, too: Beyonce's performance on Saturday marks the first time that a black woman will headline. The superstar was supposed to headline the festival last year, but had to pull out of the slot after becoming pregnant, and was later replaced by Lady Gaga. This year's April dates will also be Beyonce's first performance since giving birth to her twins in June 2017.

Sunday's second-line includes ODESZA, Portugal. the Man, Migos, Cardi B and Miguel. The lineup is more hip-hop focused than previous years, reflecting the current state of music. It's also the first time a headliner is a black woman, Beyonce. Coachella tickets go on sale Friday at noon PST and are notoriously hard to get so get ready.
