The complete lineup, as well as ticketing information, can be found on Coachella's website.
Stapleton skyrocketed to fame in 2015, and his Album of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and New Artist of the Year wins at the 2015 CMA Awards helped catapult his debut solo album Traveller to No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart.
“It’s unbelievable,” the singer-songwriter reflects of his CMA Awards successes. “This is an unbelievable thing, and I’m not going to take it lightly.”
In addition to his Coachella appearances, Stapleton has another exciting event on the horizon: He will be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on Jan. 16.
