Who’s going to headline Coachella 2016? There hasn’t been any official word on who the headliners will be, but there’s already rumors swirling. Possible Coachella 2016 lineup predictions include Beyonce and Jay Z, Mumford & Sons, Paul McCartney, and Radiohead, according to the iDigitalTimes.
What’s the reason behind these random predictions? Paul McCartney would make the great “legacy” headliner, especially with his collaborations with Rihanna and Kanye West. Queen Bey and Jay Z have never performed at Coachella, although they’re big fans of the festival. The two are also reportedly working on a new album together, which is expected to be released on Tidal.
As for Mumford & Sons and Radiohead, both bands are expected to release new music. Mumford & Sons would also be the perfect Coachella headliner since they’ve played at Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, and Reading and Leeds Festival, among other places.
Coachella does not typically announce its official lineup until January or February. Fans will have to wait and see if these Coachella 2016 lineup predictions will come true.
