Artists "Made in France" at Coachella 2018

The famous Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival returns this year for two weekends, April 13-15 and April 20-22. The announcement of the 2018 lineup for the festival revealed the usual mix of big name mucisal artists and lesser known performers, and also acknowledged a French presence in the festival. Joining the roster of artists this year are several artists whose careers and/or lives are tied to France.
