Coachella is on full tilt now, baby! Two weeks of chaos that happens every year just started in Indio, CA with Yellow Days having the opportunity to hit lead off for the whole damn thing. Three stages of star power. Jaden Smith is one big name that hits the stage late evening on Friday. That same night, Ella Mai will bring her loving R&B vibes. Janelle Monáe — who is definitely catching eyes on Instagram thanks to posing in a see-through shirt and pasties on the cover of “them.” magazine — gets a heavy hitter position later in the night, along with Diplo. Night one headliners are Childish Gambino, Kayzo and DJ Snake.

On Saturday, Kid Cudi, Little Simz and Bassnectar close the nights on three separate stages, while Wiz Khalifa, Parcels and Juice WRLD bring fire power earlier in day. Undoubtedly, Billie Ellish is red hot as she hits the Coachella stage thanks to her single “Bad Guy” debuting on the Billboard charts top 100 at number 7. J. Balvin hits the main stage right as the sun goes down.

Sunday will be emotional, no doubt about that. Y.G. performs, and you know he’ll have some personal words about his friend, California born and bred legend Nipsey Hussle. Word is YG is planning a special show for the audience, so let’s see what happens there. Ariana Grande, NGHTMRE and CHVRCHES are the grand finale of the last night. Pusha T, Bad Bunny, Emily King and Blood Orange are some notable acts earlier in the day.

A late addition to the festivities was spearheaded are the heirs to the Bad Boy throne, Christian and Justin Combs. The darling sons and their mogul dad “Sean “Diddy” Combs have their special plans for a music extravaganza. The following week LivexLive will be on hand for Kanye West’s “Sunday Service” concert with exclusive access. Stay tuned.

Don't you just wish this were a real message?
