The first weekend of Coachella 2016 starts today so what better time to celebrate the British music industry, with many of our top acts getting great slots on the bill at America’s most successful music festival.
Ellie Goulding will be appearing for her third year. With her third album Delirium making a huge impact this year, she’s in the main supporting slot on the main stage on the Friday night. She’s joined on the Friday night bill by Foals, a little further down the bill.
Guns’n’Roses may be getting all the attention as the Saturday headliners, but look further down the Coachella stage bill and you’ll find Scotland’s finest electronic indie band Chvrches as well as Disclosure.
And on Sunday night, we’ve got a British headliner in Calvin Harris, whilst the 1975 are also on the Coachella stage and Wolf Alice will be doing their thing in the Outdoor Theatre.
And it’s not just the big stars who are appearing in the valley – up and coming British starlets Frances, The Last Shadow Puppets and Låpsley will be in early slots on the Gobi and Mojave stages on Friday. Bat for Lashes and James Bay are appearing on those stages on Saturday.
