The big three for the double-weekend festival are Travis Scott, Frank Ocean and nu-metal band Rage Against the Machine. The all-dude headliner slate is something of a bummer —2017 ended a decade-long boys' club when Lady Gaga joined Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar (previously, Bjork headlined in 2007). In 2018 and 2019, Beyoncé (the first Black woman to headline) and Ariana Grande continued the trend.
Frank Ocean was likely on lots of wishlists, since he's been absent from the festival circuit since Blond — and especially after he failed to appear as the special guest at Tyler the Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw, setting loose an enraged audience upon poor Drake.
Travis Scott rounds out the 2020 trio, ensuring it fits nicely into the rap-rock-pop/R&B mass appeal formula established last year's headliners: alongside Ariana Grande were Tame Impala and Childish Gambino.
Like most years, some of the most exciting stuff is hidden in inexplicably small font down below: Lana Del Rey, Lil Nas X, Megan Thee Stallion, Charli XCX, BROCKHAMPTON, Kim Petras, Princess Nokia, DaBaby, Summer Walker, City Girls, 21 Savage, FKA Twigs, Denzel Curry, Ari Lennox, Doja Cat, Channel Tres, Slowthai and Lewis Capaldi will all appear over both weekends.
The dates this year are April 10-12 and 17-10. Weekend one is already sold out, but presale for weekend two starts Monday, January 6. Start readying your assless chap ensembles and pinching your pennies.
