Coachella is back for its 24th year. Explore with our top online casino experts the Canadian acts to take to the stage during the festival’s history.

What is on the cards for the 2023 Coachella?

With the festival set to take place across two weekends, on April 14-16 and 21-23, fans are brimming with excitement to see the likes of Frank Ocean, Bad Bunny, and Blackpink take to the stage as this year’s headliners.

This year’s line-up is set to make festival history as Bad Bunny is the first Latino artist, and Blackpink is the first K-pop group to headline on the main stage.

Regarding the Canadian offering, it appears that Coachella has moved away from making bookings this year, with Kaytranada, Chromeo, and Testpilot (Deadmau5) being the only Canadian acts appearing on the line-up.

To find out how many musicians from Canada are likely to appear in a typical line-up, we have investigated the number of Canadian artists that have taken to the stage across the festival’s history between 1999 and 2022.
