Coachella announces 2019 lineup

Perth band Tame Impala has been handed top spot on the 2019 Coachella bill, alongside Childish Gambino and Ariana Grande.

She said: "humbled and excited as all hell @coachella thank u".

Coachella on Wednesday night tweeted the full 2019 lineup for the annual music and arts festival in Indio. The festival takes place on the weekends of April 12-14 and April 19-21, and will be headlined by Childish Gambino, Tame Impala and Ariana Grande.

Mr Eazi and Burna Boy will make their debut Coachella appearances, with the London Town singer performing a set on the Saturday and the Ye singer hitting the stage on the Sunday. There was also speculation that Stronger rapper Kanye West would be returning to the event, which he previously headlined in 2011. Björk was the first in 2007, followed by Lady Gaga in 2017 and Beyoncé a year ago, who was the first black woman to headline.
