The lineup for the 2019 Coachella Music and Arts Festival has been announced and it's shaping up to be epic.

Grande's manager, Scooter Braun, congratulated her achievement on Instagram, posting a photograph of the line-up and adding the caption: "4th female to ever headline and the youngest headliner in the history of the festival!"

In the weeks leading up to the reveal, it was widely rumoured that Kanye West would perform, but, according to TMZ, "negotiations fell apart" over the size of the stage, which West felt would be "artistically limiting".

Ariana Grande seems to be everywhere lately.

The festival takes place in Indio, California, every year and draws huge crowds along with big name performers. Coachella 2019 begins April 12 and closes out on April 21.




Putting that all aside, Grande has managed to stay on top with the release of her record-breaking video, "Thank U, Next", in which she parodied some of her favorite films, including Mean Girls, 13 Going on 30, and Legally Blonde.

She said: "humbled and excited as all hell @coachella thank u".

That means home viewers will have the opportunity to see the Coachella 2019 lineup in its total, full glory: Back-to-back weekends headlined by Childish Gambino, Ariana Grande, Tame Impala, Aphex Twin.

Passes for both festival weekends will go on sale Friday, Jan. 4 at 2 p.m. ET on Coachella's website.

Other acts on the bill include Solange Knowles, Janelle Monae, The 1975, Diplo, J Balvin, Khalid, Kacey Musgraves, Wiz Khalifa, Kid Cudi and Jaden Smith.
