Coachella adds Skepta for 2017

He's back to make up for his scheduled 2016 appearance

It's already been a year unlike any other for Coachella, which saw an unprecedented switching of headliners after Beyoncé, who was originally announced, was forced to cancel due to her pregnancy.

Though diehards still held their breath for Daft Punk, the replacement slot was officially given to Lady Gaga, who will be the festival's first female headliner since Bjork in 2007.

The festival made a less buzzed about addition during the switchover, though, by adding Skepta to the Sunday line-up. The grime act is an exciting announcement especially for Stateside fans, as he was forced to cancel his 2016 performance at both Coachella and Lollapalooza due to visa issues.

See the revised line-up with Skepta included below.
