Childish Gambino

2019 is set to be an absolute smash for rising Irish star Dermot Kennedy, if this latest announcement is anything to go by.

News has just hit that the singer-songwriter from Dublin is set to hit the Coachella stage this April, joining the ranks of headliners such as Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino and Tame Impala.

The world famous California music festival attracts attention from all over the world for the big names it procures, and now Irish talent will be joining them.

The singer made the big announcement over Twitter, writing that the opportunity is "a dream come true" for the artist,

Despite the fact that Kennedy has yet to release an album, he has sold a whopping 75,000 tickets worldwide in the last year alone following the release of his EP, Doves and Ravens.

His latest track, Power Over Me, has generated over 300 million streams globally and the Dubliner has over 2.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify.. 

He is also part of YouTube's first ever Ones To Watch list, and his 2019 tour which kicks off in May has sold out four nights in the Olympia Theatre in Dublin, Brixton's O2 Academy and Manchester's Albert Hall.

Irish singer-songwriter Gavin James was the only Irish artist to make the Coachella 2018 list, which attracted 99,000 concert-goers to the festival.

Congratulations to Dermot, he'll do us proud.

If you didn't get tickets to Ariana Grande's Sweetener tour, you may be in luck.

The Thank U, Next artist will be headlining Coachella 2019.

In the jammy chance you did secure tickets for Sunday, April 14 and 21, you could be boppin' along to Ari's tunes.

The music festival has released the entire weekend line-ups and it's UNREAL.

If you have tickets for Friday 12 & 19, you'll be treated to Childish Gambino.

Headlining April 13 and 20 is Australian rockers Tame Impala. 

Ariana is clearly buzzing to take the stage later this year.

In a tweet she thanked Coachella, saying that she was "humbled and excited as all hell."

Fans were absolutely delighted to hear the singer would be owning the Sunday nights.

If you've managed to cover the cost of the pricey weekend – we are JEALOUS.

As you soak in the sun and the music, think of us in rainy Ireland, too poor to fork out for the festival.
