Evening Times - - NEWS -

MAN of the mo­ment Lewis Ca­paldi and dance leg­end Calvin Har­ris are among two of the head­lin­ers an­nounced for the Coachella 2020 line-up.

The two Scot­tish su­per­stars will take to the Cal­i­for­nia stage along with huge names such as Frank Ocean, Lana Del Rey, Charli XCX, Rage Against the Ma­chine and Travis Scott.

Lewis pro­claimed him­self “Amer­ica’s Sweet­heart” af­ter he reached num­ber one across the pond.

The Glas­gow-born singer-song­writer has re­cently broke records in Amer­ica and been nom­i­nated for his first Grammy award with his smash sin­gle “Some­one You Loved”, which rack­ing up 228mil­lion streams at the end of 2019.

Lewis will play Fri­day, April 10 and 17 at the fes­ti­val, as well as his dates at the SEC Hy­dro in March.

Dum­fries-born Calvin Har­ris took home two gongs at The Brit Awards last year.

Af­ter 16 nom­i­na­tions in 10 years, the Scot­tish DJ won for his hit song with Dua Lipa ‘One Kiss’, as well as also took home Bri­tish pro­ducer of the year.

Calvin has un­der­gone quite the trans­for­ma­tion, from be­ing a bud­ding DJ record­ing in his bed­room to be­com­ing a dou­ble Brit-win­ning mu­si­cian with mod­el­ling ac­co­lades.

Coachella is Cal­i­for­nia’s big­gest mu­sic fes­ti­val, with around 500,000 at­ten­dees ev­ery year watch­ing per­for­mances over five dif­fer­ent mu­sic stages.

Un­veil­ing the full list of per­form­ers late on Thurs­day evening, tick­ets are al­ready sold out for the first week­end with both Lewis and Calvin.
