The event, which showcases popular and established musical artists, is set to take place over two weekends this year, on April 10-12 and 17-18.
Rich Brian (Brian Imanuel Soewarno), is currently on a promotional world tour, titled “The Sailor,” for his second album that was released last year. The 20-year-old rapper went viral with his hit song “Dat $tick” in 2016 while still using his stage name Rich Chigga.
Rich Brian signed up with record label 88rising after relocating from Jakarta, Indonesia to Los Angeles in 2017. Since then, he has collaborated with other artists such as Chungha and RZA of Wu-Tang Clan.
Meanwhile, 20-year-old R&B singer/songwriter NIKI (Nicole Zefanya) moved to Nashville, Tennessee from Jakarta also in 2017.
NIKI released the tracks “I Like U” and “See U Never” while studying music at Lipscomb University. In 2018, she eventually released her debut EP titled “Zephyr,” which was followed by the “wanna take this downtown?” EP in 2019.
She also released the acoustic versions of her singles on 88rising’s album, which was titled “NIKI Acoustic Sessions: Head in the Clouds II.”
NIKI and Rich Brian are scheduled to perform on April 10 and April 17. They will be performing on the same day as Rage Against The Machine, Run The Jewels, Calvin Harris, Rex Orange County, Megan Thee Stallion and BIGBANG. The world-renowned K-pop supergroup was discharged from South Korea’s compulsory military service in November 2019.
88rising’s Joji is also scheduled to do a special performance called “Double Happiness” at the festival on April 11 and April 18, Coconuts Jakarta reports.
According to a tweet from Coachella, presale tickets are set to go on sale Monday at noon PT.
