American singer & songwriter, Frank Ocean to headline the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival 2023, says Paul Tollett.
According to the Los Angeles Times reports, Coachella co-founder Paul Tollett said that the far-off booking was a reward for fans who have experienced multiple postponements of the festival in the last year.
“That’s the only thing I’ve been to and, man, it felt great,” Tollett, 55, says of the June 29 performance. “Just being in there, and the energy… I missed it.”
Tollett also confirmed that Rage Against The Machine and Travis Scott will return to headline in 2022, alongside performances from Megan Thee Stallion and Doja Cat.
“Right now, it’s the Wild West,” Tollett said. “I’m just trying to be as fair as I can to artists and to the fans to make sure that eventually, they get to see everyone that we talked about.”
In the same interview, Tollett also revealed that more than half of Coachella ticket-holders requested refunds when the event was first postponed in March 2020.
“I joked that we did too good of a job on refunds,” Tollett says with a smile. “I understand you want your refund. You’ve got your hotel, your airfare, all your stuff. Tickets are the smallest of it all, actually.”
