The line-up for Coachella 2017 has been revealed, with Beyonce, Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar set to headline the festival in April.

Promoted by Goldenvoice, the event returns this year to the Empire Polo Club in California and takes place across two weekends.

Radiohead are headlining on Friday April 14th and 21st. Other acts on the bill for those dates include the XX, Travis Scott, Father John Misty and Empire of the Sun.

On Saturday, April 15th and 22nd, Beyonce is the main act. Bon Iver, Future, DJ Snake, Martin Garrix, School Boy Q and Gucci Mane will also play.

Kendrick Lamar completes the headline line-up on Sunday April 16th and 23rd. He appears on the bill alongside Lorde, Justice, New Order, Porter Robinson & Madeon and Future Islands.

A whole host of other acts are also set to appear, including Bastille, Glass Animals, Steve Angello, Banks, Two Door Cinema Club, DJ Khaled and many more.

Last year Goldenvoice won approval from Indio City Council to increase the festival’s capacity by 26.3%, with the attendance cap rising from 99,000 to 125,000.

2016’s event saw Calvin Harris close the first weekend with the ‘largest-ever light show’, while Guns N’ Roses and LCD Soundsystem also headlined.
