Coachella lineup thrills Toronto music fans
It's that time of year where music festival lineups slowly start to get released and bank accounts brace for impact.
The Coachella lineup for 2020 was just announced and Torontonians might be among those gearing up to hit one of the biggest festivals of the year, especially since some of the city's own made it into the line up this time around.
Jessie Reyez, Daniel Caesar, and PUP are all set to perform during the two-weekend Californian festival this year.
Jessie Reyez posted the line up on Instagram, writing "THE SAME DAY AS FRANK ( YALL KNOW IM A STAN) MAN 2020 I AINT MAD AT U ."
@coachella BITCHHHHHH AND THE SAME DAY AS FRANK ( YALL KNOW IM A STAN) MAN 2020 I AINT MAD AT U ❤️ here’s a 2015 video of me doing a cover of Ying yang twins in my parents apartment in Toronto hoping I’d get noticed lol if you’re chasing what your passion is I hope you keep goin ❤️
She went on to post a video of her singing in her parents' apartment from 2015, writing " if you're chasing what your passion is I hope you keep goin."
PUP also secured a spot in the line up, performing with the likes of Rage Against the Machine, Run the Jewels, and Charli XCX on April 10 and 17.
The band posted to Twitter on Friday afternoon joking ,"as far as we know, whoever made this decision hasn’t been fired yet."
PUP starts touring with their highly reviewed album, Morbid Stuff, next month.
Daniel Caesar also appears on the the bill for Coachella 2020, and will be playing the festival on April 12 and 19.
Fans couldn't contain their excitement and naturally took to Twitter with their best excited memes.

While she might not be from Toronto, Carly Rae Jepsen is another Canadian to grace the line up.
Here's hoping the Osheaga line up has just as many local and national gems.
