    Coachella is going back to the future.

    After years of tapping old-school rock bands and marquee reunions, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Tuesday unveiled a remarkably forward-looking lineup for its 2017 edition, set to take place April 14-16 and again April 21-23 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio.

    Beyoncé, Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar will headline the annual desert blowout, generally regarded as the country’s most prestigious music festival, while dozens of other up-to-the-minute acts will perform, including Travis Scott, DJ Snake, Bon Iver, Shura, Gucci Mane, Majid Jordan, Lorde and Justice.

    In case the message wasn’t clear, a pointedly named Atlanta rapper — Future — will appear as well.
