Will Taylor Swift return to her music festival era?


Coachella is approaching and Swifties are speculating whether the popstar will make an appearance at the music and arts festival in Indio, California — either as an attendee or a surprise guest performer.

Swift’s Eras Tour schedule aside, the Coachella 2024 lineup alone is causing fans to theorize as a handful of artists scheduled to take the festival stage are Swift’s close pals and collaborators.

Fans have also been speculating whether Travis Kelce will be in attendance as he’s currently in the NFL offseason after the Kansas City Chiefs snagged a consecutive Super Bowl title in February.

The last time Swift stopped by the festival grounds was in 2016, marking the one and only time she attended Coachella (or as she iconically dubbed it, “Bleachella,” due to her bleach-blonde hairdo at the time). Her then-boyfriend, Calvin Harris, headlined that year, along with Guns N’ Roses and LCD Soundsystem.


Kelce attended Coachella in 2022 and 2023 with his buddies, including best friend Aric Jones and Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. “Brochella went crazy!!!,” the NFL star captioned an Instagram video that featured a compilation of high-energy clips from his weekend.

Swift is currently in a brief hiatus from the international leg of her Eras Tour. She wrapped a series of six shows at the Singapore National Stadium on Saturday, March 9. The tour resumes in Paris on Thursday, May 9 for the start of its European leg.

However, just because Swift doesn’t have any concerts scheduled until then, she might still be busy as she prepares to release new music. It hasn’t been made public whether she’s made prior commitments tied to her upcoming studio album, The Tortured Poets Department, which is scheduled to be released on April 19.

Does Travis Kelce have practice during Coachella weekend?

Travis Kelce is also on a break from his usual NFL schedule. The tight end and his Kansas City Chiefs team entered the NFL offseason after they secured a second-consecutive Super Bowl victory in Las Vegas on Feb. 11, 2024.

Now, Kelce has several months free until preseason practices start, with specific dates and times for teams to be announced in the spring. The Chiefs player is training to stay in shape while he enjoys his time off over the next few months, though he’s not tied to an official NFL practice schedule that would conflict with Coachella weekend.

What has Travis Kelce said about attending Coachella?

Kelce spoke with PEOPLE about his potential plans to return to the music and arts festival in Indio, California this year. “I am a Coachella guy,” the NFL star said in April, about one week away from the event.

“I love going to Coachella. I love live music in general. So you might see me pop up over there at some point,” he added. However, with the NFL season not too far away and a handful of additional responsibilities around his other endeavors, Kelce teased his plan wasn’t set in stone.

“I’m not sure if I’ll go to a weekend, one or two, or if I even have time knowing my schedule’s filling up pretty quick before we get started back up for football here,” he explained.

Swift hasn’t publicly said anything about her Coachella plans this year, however, the lineup alone is a solid reason for her to attend — or potentially make a surprise appearance as a guest performer. Notably, one of the headliners is Lana Del Rey, who is a longtime friend and collaborator of the pop superstar.

Most recently, Swift brought the “Summertime Sadness” singer on stage at the Grammys when she accepted the award for album of the year in early February, which featured Del Rey on the track “Snow on the Beach.” One week later, the duo was spotted together at the Super Bowl in Swift’s star-studded suite.

Ice Spice, who also joined Swift in the Super Bowl suite, is also on the Coachella lineup. The rapper, who collaborated with the popstar on a remixed rendition of “Karma,” attended the festival last year — but this will mark her debut as a Coachella performer.

Joining Ice Spice and Del Rey on the Coachella lineup is Sabrina Carpenter, who opened for Swift during the Eras Tour. The pair have been enjoying time together off stage, too, including several dinner outings and trips to the zoo while they toured in Australia in March.

Finally, Bleachers — featuring Jack Antonoff, a close friend and famed collaborator of Swift since first meeting in 2012 — rounds out the list of artists on the Coachella 2024 lineup who are famously in the popstar’s inner circle.
