YES!! The Coachella 2016 lineup has finally dropped and we couldn’t be more excited about the acts playing the biggest event of the spring. Calvin Harris has landed the top spot as one of the festival’s headliners and we’re betting on girlfriend being there as his number one fan!
So exciting! Calvin Harris has landed by far the biggest gig of his career – the Scottish DJ will be the Sunday night headliner at Coachella 2016! The full lineup for the world-famous music festival was announced on Jan. 4 and the other headliners include a Guns N’ Roses reunion on Saturday and LCD Soundsystem on Friday night, which will be the kickoff of their big 2016 reunion tour. Are you excited already? We’ve for the lineup for you here!
The annual festival will be held on the weekends of April 15-17 and April 22-24, at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, CA. If you’re a fan of the fest, get ready to hop online and fight for tickets as they go on sale Jan. 6 at 2 p.m. EST/11 a.m. PST and will likely sell out in minutes.

On Friday, headliner LCD Soundsystem will be joined by Ellie Goulding, M83, Jack U, Sufjan Stevens, Run the Jewels, The Kills, and dozens of others.
Saturday headliner Guns N’ Roses should make for an amazing festival moment where singer Axl Rose and guitarist Slash will finally play the same stage together. Also playing that night are artists including Zedd, Ice Cube, A$AP Rocky, Chvrches, Disclosure, Silversun Pickups, Courtney Barnett, Rhye and more.
Calvin will cap off Sunday night’s main stage show, which will also feature such names as, Sia, The 1975, Beach House, Rancid, country star Chris Stapleton, Major Lazer, Deafheaven, and dozens of others throughout the day.
While the lineup looks amazing this year, unfortunately we won’t be treated to such big names as last year with the likes of Drake and Madonna and the amazing moment it gave us with that super awkward onstage kiss. Oh well, maybe Taylor Swift will hop on stage and sing along to one of Calvin’s songs. And with Zedd playing, it would be awesome if Selena Gomez could join him for “I Want You To Know.”
