22 Hip-Hop Acts Performing at Coachella 2017

Do you plan on spending $399 to see 150 acts over one of two three-day weekends?

Before the end of 2016, rumors began to spread that Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar would be headlining the upcoming Coachella music and arts festival in April.

Now that the calendar has flipped to 2017, we can officially confirm that both Beyoncé and Kendrick are indeed headlining, along with Radiohead, but they aren't the only acts hip-hop fans should be excited about seeing at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.

Over the course of two three-day weekends—April 14-16 and April 21-23—the following rap acts (and DJ Khaled) are slated to perform: Denzel Curry, Future, GoldLink, Gucci Mane, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Uzi Vert, Mac Miller, Nav, ScHoolboy Q, Stormzy, Swet Shop Boys, Tory Lanez and Travis Scott.

And if that list isn't enough to get you excited to drop $399 on a weekend pass, the festival will also feature performances by The Avalanches, DJ Shadow, DJ Snake, Kaytranada, Majid Jordan, Raury, Sampha and Thundercat.

Deep breathes.

In total, out of the 150 total acts booked for the back-to-back weekend extravaganza, 22 are either rap artists or acts who operate on the fringes of hip-hop. By comparison, the original Coachella festival in 1999 featured 12 hip-hop acts, most notably Jurassic 5.
