The NYC band, who released their fifth album ‘Only God Was Above Us’, last Friday (April 5), are due to play on the Outdoor Theatre stage this Saturday (April 13). They’ll deliver a 45-minute performance between 5pm and 5:45pm.

It has not been confirmed whether Vampire Weekend will return for a second show at the second weekend of the festival. The group have previously appeared at Coachella in 2008, 2010 and 2013.

Organisers announced the surprise addition to the bill while sharing the full schedule for Coachella 2024 weekend one yesterday (April 9). “Vampire Weekend 1,” they wrote in the caption.

The band also shared an image of the festival site featuring the title: “(Vampire) Weekend One.” You can see those posts below.

Vampire Weekend kicked off their 2024 North American tour on Monday (April 8) with a special gig in Austin, Texas to coincide with the total solar eclipse. They gave some songs their live debuts during the show and were joined on stage by Phoenix‘s Thomas Mars.

The concert was live-streamed via Veeps and is available to view on-demand, exclusively for Veeps All Access subscribers.

In a four-star review of ‘Only God Was Above Us’, NME wrote: “It’s an ambitious concoction of sounds that don’t seem to exist in the same realm, yet intertwine naturally beneath [frontman Ezra] Koenig’s increasingly sullen vocals.”

The band will also head out on tour in Europe, the UK and Ireland this year, and are scheduled to perform at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Luton next month. Other festival appearances for the season include Primavera SoundKilby Block Party and Hinterland.
