Although 2017 is in its infancy, that hasn’t prevented festival promoters from getting a jump on announcing their prized lineups.

A few prominent Atlanta natives – Future and Gucci Mane - will perform on April 15 and April 22 (the two-weekend fest takes place April 14-16 and April 21-23).
Others on this year’s lineup for the event in Indio, Calif., include the xx, Bon Iver, Lorde, Justice, New Order, Travis Scott, Martin Garrix, Father John Misty, Mac Miller and Future Islands.
