Hidden amidst the massive roster of big-name pop acts and well-regarded indie bands for this year's Coachella Valley Arts and Music Festival was a name that might have seemed out of place to most music fans - Idris Elba. And as expected, it's filled to the brim with A-list performers.

Ariana Grande says she is "humbled and excited" after being picked to headline the Coachella festival in April.

On Saturday April 13 & 20 alongside the Tame Impala lads, you'll find Solange, Kid Cudi, Billie Eilish, Mac DeMarco, Maggie Rogers, Wiz Khalifa, Idris Elba (!), Turnover, Superorganism, shame, Hop Along, Little Simz, Weezer, Aphex Twin, and Four Tet, to name but a few.

Kanye's stage shows have seen him perform on some pretty memorable stages over the years, with his Saint Pablo Tour seeing him perform on a moving stage above the crowd, whilst his Glastonbury set saw him perform underneath a super-low lighting rig.

'Aquaman' becomes top-earning DC Extended Universe movie to date
At this rate, Aquaman should be the first DCEU movie to cross the $ 1 billion mark. However, it could even pass those films if it stays on track.

Actor/rapper Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino has been announced for the music festival.

TMZ reported that Kayne dropped from the line-up due to a disagreement on stage size and design. Neither the rapper or the festival has confirmed it.

Tickets for the Californian desert event go on sale this Friday and will set back lucky music lovers a casual $429 for a weekend pass, or $999 if you fancy splashing out for a Kylie Jenner-style VIP wristband.
