The 2024 edition of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is mere days away, yet the Southern California fest is still adding acts to the lineup...or, more specifically, one act: Vampire Weekend. The New York indie vets will now play on the second day of the festival, which kicks off the first of its two weekends this Friday.

As announced on April 9, Vampire Weekend will play in the late afternoon on the festival's secondary Outdoor Theater stage, presumably as a fill-in for breakout South African star Tyla, who was forced to cancel her planned appearance. This will be the band's fourth appearance at Coachella, though its last came more than a decade ago, in 2013.

The appearance will offer California fans a sneak glimpse of the band's upcoming tour in support of fifth album Only God Was Above Us, which was released last Friday. The band also performed a special midday concert timed to the solar eclipse in Austin, Texas yesterday, performing new tracks, oldies, and a cover of Phoenix's "Tonight" featuring the band's frontman Thomas Mars.

The rest of the Coachella lineup remains unchanged, with headliners Lana Del Rey, Doja Cat and Tyler, the Creator all set to descend upon the Empire Polo Club grounds. Set times were recently posted to the festival's website, meaning it's time to break out your highlighter and start making some tough choices.
