Epik High will perform April 17 and April 24.

The annual two-weekend Coachella Festival is one of the largest music festivals in the United States, drawing fans to Indio, California, to enjoy music by top artists of all genres.

This year’s Coachella is particularly notable because it will be the first time Guns N’ Roses founding members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan reunite on stage since their separation in the ‘90s. The group will be headlining both Saturdays, April 16 and April 23.
