As pointed out by her manager, Scooter Braun, the "Thank U, Next" singer will become the youngest artist to ever headline the festival in its 20-year history. The 25-year-old will also be Coachella's fourth female headliner, following Beyoncé, Lady Gaga and Björk; the latter act was the first woman to receive the top billing in 2007.
Festival organizers announced the 2019 lineup on Thursday. The event will be co-headlined by Childish Gambino and Tame Impala, and will include performances by Kid Cudi, J Balvin, Khalid, Juice WRLD, Playboi Carti, Ella Mai, Solange, and Gucci
Mane Gang. Grande expressed her gratitude shortly after the lineup was announced.
Coachella 2019 will take place over the weekends of April 12 and April 19 in at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. Passes will go on sale this Friday at the festival's official website.
Grande, who is preparing to release her fifth studio album Thank U, Next, has been blessing fans with new music and visuals over the past several months, and it appears fans will receive "something fun" very soon. And we mean very soon.
