Although it announced its full bill of performers back in January—including headlining sets from The Weeknd, Beyoncé, and Eminem—Coachella usually waits a while to unleash the actual schedule for its various weekends of musical debauchery. That auspicious moment finally arrived tonight, with the festival tweeting out the running order for its first weekend of 2018, which arrivew this Friday, April 13.
As usual, the schedule presents all sorts of hypothetically fun dilemmas for music fans: Beyoncé, or X Japan? Vince Staples, or The War On Drugs? Eminem, or heading out early to beat the traffic? It’s a series of very tricky propositions, ones that festival-goers don’t have much time to prepare for. Especially since they’re going to be busy practicing their best straight faces, for when they tell festival security guards that no, they certainly don’t intend to bring any of that terrible, beastly marijuana into this year’s sonic festivities. Not. At. All!
