Arcade Fire is officially playing Coachella.

Earlier Thursday, the “Wake Up” outfit teased a possible surprise set at the California festival with a photo of frontman Win Butler captioned, “Decided to spend my birthday somewhere warm and dry.” Now, Coachella has confirmed that Butler and company will indeed be performing in its newly unveiled schedule of set times.

Arcade Fire won’t be playing a headlining set — rather, they’ll be performing Friday evening at the Mojave tent from 6:45 p.m. to 7:45 p.m., in between performances by pop artist Carly Rae Jepsen and punk band IDLES.

The first weekend of Coachella takes place April 15-17, followed by weekend two April 22-24. It’s unclear if Arcade Fire will play the second weekend, as well, or just the first.

The Coachella 2022 lineup also includes Billie Eilish, Måneskin, Phoebe Bridgers, Turnstile, girl in red, Wallows, FINNEAS, The Regrettes, and Bishop Briggs.
