Brace yourselves. The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has announced the lineup for its 2017 festival. The extensive two-weekend list of performers shows just how far the festival has evolved. The headliners are Radiohead, Beyoncé, and Kendrick Lamar. The lineup also features Lorde, The Avalanches, Father John Misty, Bon Iver, New Order, Future Islands, and German composer Hans Zimmer.

Even at $399 per weekend, tickets sell out every year within nanoseconds of being released. With these mega-headliners, we think we ought to brace ourselves for a complete internet outage when passes go on sale on January 4th. Or start making alternative plans.

Needless to say, Twitter has already lost its mind over the news.

Some think the festival has become too mainstream.

Others think it’s become too hipster.

While still others don’t give a flying fest, they just want to see the Queen Bee.

The festival spans two weekends, from April 14 to 16, and April 21 through 23 in Indio, California.

Time is our friend.

Beyoncé??!!!

Doing the math.

Fair warning to all Dads.

Thought process.

Good planning.

A year in advance.

While some rejoice, others glance sideways.

Code word.

Learn from your elders.

The good old days.

Whether too mainstream or too hipster, we can’t lie: we’re definitely in the freaking-out-omg-bey-kendrick-hold-me-i’m-fainting camp.
