Guns N' Roses, LCD Soundsystem and Calvin Harris are the headliners for this year's Coachella.

The annual music and arts festival is slated for two weekends, April 15-17 and April 22-24. It's a reunion for Guns N' Roses, which is rumored to be touring at dozens of football stadiums throughout the U.S. this summer.

It's also a reunion gig for LCD Soundsystem.

Tickets to this year's festival go on sale at 11 a.m. PST Wednesday, Jan. 6.

In 2015 Coachella sold 198,000 tickets and brought in $84 million. When the festival debuted in 1999, attendance was around 20,000. Beck, Tool and Rage Against the Machine were some of the headlining acts.

Underworld also performed at the debut Coachella festival and will be part of this year's festival.

The launch of Coachella at the Empire Polo Club is tied to a 1993 Pearl Jam concert that was performed there as a result of the band having a dispute with Ticketmaster and not wanting to play in nearby Los Angeles. That show proved the club's ability to host large-scale events.
