The Weeknd, Eminem, and Beyoncé are the scheduled headliners for Coachella 2018. The Weeknd first performed at Coachella in 2012, and his work has come a long way since then, including several Billboard Top 100 singles, Grammy Awards, and other international accolades. That first performance at Coachella 2012 was also The Weeknd’s first stage appearance in the United States. He recalled feeling nervous and, immediately after watching a video of the performance, decided that it didn’t embody a star. He knew that he could do better. The full circle moment to come at Coachella 2018 is an exciting chance for The Weeknd to prove to himself, and his fans, what he already knew in 2012.
