Skrillex, Fred Again.. and Four Dead will play a special set to fill the final slot for Coachella’s Weekend 2 Sunday night.Rolling Stone Confirmed.
The three acts will play the 10:25 TBA slot currently listed on Coachella’s Sunday lineup after Blink-182’s headlining set, both replacing Frank Ocean after the singer left for Weekend 2 on Wednesday.
Fred Again.. teased the performance on Thursday, writing on Instagram, “I can’t believe I’m saying this again, but does anyone know where Sunny is? [Skrillex]]there?” He also shared a screenshot of a FaceTime call with the Four Dead. Later that evening, Fred Again.. confirmed that the trio would be performing at the festival. “Coachella. Sunday night,” the DJ wrote. “I didn’t think I’d be back with my brothers for a long time. Until last night. Here we are.
The three electronic acts recently released a collaboration titled “Baby Again” in March after a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden.
The new report comes just minutes after Coachella announced the schedule for Sunday’s festival, which included Blink-182 as a headliner for Sunday’s lineup.
Variety It was first announced earlier this week that Blink-182 would be taking over the headline spot following Ocean’s cancellation. Reps for Ocean cited an ankle injury he suffered before his performance last week that caused an abrupt change in his production.
Last year Coachella had to book a second headline change after Kanye West was replaced by The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia last year.
“It was messy. There’s some beauty in the mess. It’s not what I wanted to show, but I’m glad I’m out there and I’ll see you soon,” Ocean said in a statement following his controversial set last week.
