Coachella‘s official lineup typically lands in January every year in conjunction with ticket sales, though this year, fans have been too eager to get their hands on the 2020 talent roster. Earlier this month the festival’s headliners reportedly leakedTravis Scott, Rage Against The Machine, and Frank Ocean are expected to top the bill. Now, new reports by Consequence of Sound suggest Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke, the newly reunited My Chemical Romance, Lana Del Rey, and Flume are expected to join those ranks.

After a monumental 2019, which brought the debut of a new live show at Lollpalooza, Flume isn’t exactly a surprise on Coachella’s 2020 lineup. Lana Del Rey and Thom Yorke both released solo projects this year, and My Chemical Romance’s Coachella debut gives the festival another opportunity to put on a beloved reunion act as they’ve done in years past, a la OutKast, AC/DC, LCD Soundsystem and more. Coachella returns to Indio’s Empire Polo Club on April 10 -12 for weekend one and April 17 – 19, 2020 for weekend two.

Music industry shows its support in light of recent mass shootingsKacey Musgraves Lollapalooza

The first weekend of August, two mass shootings in Texas and Ohio left more than 31 people dead in the span of 14 hours.

The first shooting in El Paso, Texas on Saturday, Aug. 3 took 22 lives. Another nine people were killed in Dayton, Ohio. The two shootings are the latest in a dangerously common trend that have led to a toll of 255 U.S. mass shootings in 2019 as of today. The number of mass shootings has outpaced the number of days in the year.

In wake of the recent tragedies, the world has shown an outpouring of support and condolences for the communities affected. Artists and music industry figures, from Mija to Khalid to Lana Del Rey, and Bebe Rexha used their platforms to express their grief and provide comfort for those affected.

Mija, Khalid, and Riot Ten took to social media to announce their respective benefit concerts while Lana Del Rey wrote a song, “Looking for America” with Jack Antonoff in light of events. Meanwhile, Bebe Rexha urged her followers to talk to their senators to make changes against gun violence.

J.I.D. and Kacey Musgraves used their Lollapolooza slots to address audiences. The rapper dedicated a moment of silence to victims before his set, while the country singer addressed her concerns during a performance of her song, “Rainbow.”

“I can’t even believe that we’re having to process the s–t that’s happening in the last 24 hours, much less everything that’s happened in the last two-hundred and f–king fifteen days in America. I don’t know what the answer is but obviously something has to be f–king done,” Musgraves urged. “Maybe somebody will hear us if we all yell together to say, ‘Somebody f–king do something.”
