Post-punk band Iceage will kickstart their North American tour with some help from alternative rock band Shame. The Danish band is touring in support of their latest studio album Beyondless, which peaked at number four on the U.S. Heatseekers Albums chart. Shame will be promoting their critically acclaimed debut album Songs of Praise.
Rapper Jaden Smith spent all of 2018 plugging his debut album Syre. Towards the end of last year, he celebrated the album's one year anniversary with his mixtape The Sunset Tapes: A Cool Tape Story. While he may seem like an enigma online, his live shows have drawn praise from even the weariest hip-hop fan. Joining him for this show are SG Lewis and Teo.
K-pop group BLACKPINK, who will be the first K-pop group to perform at Coachella, will kick off their debut U.S. tour inside The Forum. The group burst onto the charts with their hit single "Ddu-Du Ddu-Du" from their debut album Blackpink in Your Area. With over 600 million views, the accompanying music video is the most viewed YouTube video for a K-pop group. In October, they collaborated with Dua Lipa with "Kiss and Make Up" taken from the deluxe edition of Lipa's self-titled debut album.
Since 2015, Ross From Friends has been on the rise in the U.K. electronic scene. With the help of Flying Lotus' record label Brainfeeder, the producer unleashed their debut album Family Portrait. While we don't expect him to bust out the keyboard like Ross from Friends, we do expect a completely intense set.
During her lengthy acting career, Charlotte Gainsbourg has taken to the recording studio for a slew of records. Her recent studio album Rest was based on the deaths of her father Serge Gainsbourg and half-sister Kate Barry. In December, she unveiled her new EP titled Take 2, which includes a cover of Kanye West's "Runaway." Gainsbourg rarely plays America, so this is a rare opportunity to catch her live.
Electronic/hip-hop producer Kaytranada has performed at countless festivals around the world. He makes his return to Coachella this year, but he's heading to The Novo for a headlining performance. While his last studio album was in 2016, he's been keeping busy producing a slew of songs for acts such as Cassie and Talib Kweli. Back in November, he unveiled his latest singles "Nothin' Like U" and "Chances."
Synthpop trio CHVRCHES will make some time between their two Coachella performances for a show inside Pappy & Harriet's. The band are busy supporting their latest studio album Love Is Dead. In November, the band released their Hansa Session EP, which features acoustic versions of tracks from their latest album.
Grammy-winning producer Zedd is putting the final touches on his third studio album, and fans have already got a taste with explosive singles "Stay" and "The Middle." With the recent release of his Katy Perry collaboration "365," the producer will continue burning the charts in 2019. Whethan and Yung Bae will also perform.
It's been three years since J-pop group Perfume touched down upon the United States, but they'll be back this spring on their Future Pop world tour. The group will return supporting their latest studio album Future Pop, which became their sixth number one album in Japan. This year, they'll be the first J-pop group to ever perform at Coachella.
While they're based out of London, members of art-pop band Superorganism have members from various countries. 2018 found the band making a splash on the radio with their single "Everybody Wants to Be Famous" from their self-titled debut album. Recently, the band unveiled their track from the Lego Movie 2 soundtrack titled "Hello Me & You."
