King Sunny Ade is billed to perform at this year 2017’s edition of the annual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, lined up alongside with acts such as Kendrick Lamar, Beyonce, DJ Khaled and Tory Lanez among others.
I’m not sure you people understand just what a big deal this is.
Organised by Golden Voice, featuring many genres of music such as rock, indie, hip hop, electronic dance music as well as art installations and sculptures. Coachella takes place at the Empire Polo Club, Indio, California, USA and is one of the largest, most famous, and most profitable music festivals on the planet. The 2015 festival alone sold about 198,000 tickets and grossed $84.3 million. Coachella is also considered to be trend setting as “The lineup always introduces the best of the year for the rest of the year.” (Katy Perry herself said that!)
So basically, Coachella is awesome. And our very own KSA is going to be there! Clearly this is his moment.
KSA is to share the stage alongside other international artistes like Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, Beyonce, Bon Iver, DJ Snake, DJ Khaled, Tory Lanes, Hans Zimmer, Radiohead and more.
This year’s edition of Coachella holds between April 14 – April 16, 2017 and April 21 – April 23, 2017.
