It’s that time again—Coachella is back for 2019 and we have a new round of artists faced with having to follow up the cultural impact known as Beychella.

The annual music and arts festival posted the flyer for the lineup all over its social media accounts on Wednesday night.

Childish Gambino will be headlining the grand opening night on April 12, with a followup on April 19.

Anderson .Paak, who is definitely having himself a moment, will be bringing in the festival on the two Fridays, as well.

The most magic flautist you’ll ever see, Lizzo, will also be performing with the grand finale lineup.

You know who won’t be there? Kanye.

The Ye rapper couldn’t close a deal with Coachella over stage design because he believed the traditional 60x40 foot stage to be “artistically limiting,” per TMZ. The negotiations did not go in his favor as the production team behind the festival, Goldenvoice, declined to alter the stage in any format.

Plus, Billboard has confirmed Coachella will continue its pact with YouTube to livestream the first weekend performance, but has also expanded its partnership for the second weekend as well. This will be the first time YouTube has offered an official livestream for the second weekend.

Remember when we all cozied up on our couches with snacks to cuss out Post Malone for refusing to take his dust and go for Beyoncé and subsequently witnessed the marvel known as Beychella?

Then, we were salty and scrambling for footage when Bey and her black ass band decided to do it again, but this time in pink.

YouTube will also curate playlists as the official playlist partner for the festival.

Coachella 2019 will take place on the weekends of April 12-14 and April 19-21 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif. Passes are now available for purchase at Coachella.com.
