Additionally, it was announced that Coachella 2023 will also feature a new "Coachella Island" experience in the metaverse thanks to a partnership with Fortnite.

"Fortnite is the ideal partner for Coachella due to their shared emphasis on creativity, entertainment, and cultural impact," said Coachella innovation lead Sam Schoonover.

This virtual experience will allow attendees to explore a digital remake of the festival grounds, take part in dance competitions, and purchase in-game "merch," providing a fully immersive experience for players and music fans alike.

Music by Porter Robinson, an artist who is also on the Coachella's 2023 lineup, will be playing on the island.

The festival's Friday lineup will also feature acts such as the Chemical Brothers, Kaytranada, and more!
