The official lineup was announced Tuesday afternoon on the festival’s official Twitter page and website. The festival is slated for the weekends of April 13-15 and April 20-22 at its usual venue, the Empire Polo Grounds.

Three-day general admission passes go on sale Friday at noon.

The main acts will each be making their first headlining appearance at Coachella.

Eminem previously appeared as a guest with Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg in 2012, but has not been billed as a festival act before.

Beyoncé was initially slated to perform last year, but had to bow out after announcing she was pregnant with twins. Lady Gaga took over as a replacement, but Beyoncé pledged to perform in 2018 when she announced her cancellation.

The lineup marks the first time in the festival’s history that a rock band will not be among the headlining performers.
