This year’s Coachella will offer a couple of big reunions – Guns N’ Roses and LCD Soundsystem.

The lineup for the annual two-weekend music festival in Indio, Calif., was unveiled Monday night, and features LCD Soundsystem – which played a farewell show in New York in 2011 – headlining April 15 and April 22 and a version of GNR that will include Axl Rose and Slash topping the bill April 16 and April 23.

Other acts include Calvin Harris (the April 17 and April 24 headliner), Ellie Goulding, Ice Cube, Disclosure, Sia, Major Lazer, Chris Stapleton, James Bay, Sufjan Stevens and Atlanta’s Run the Jewels and Rae Sremmurd.

Rumors of a Guns N’ Roses reunion has been circulating for weeks; no word yet about other tour plans for the band.

Tickets to Coachella are on sale at 11 a.m. Jan. 6 and start at $399 for a general admission weekend pass. For more information and to see the full lineup, visit www.coachella.com.
