Coachella 2024: Dates, Lineups, History & No Doubt Props You Can Bet

Coachella Ferris Wheel

Coachella used to be cool, man. Look at who performed at the first festival in 1999:

  • Beck
  • Tool
  • Rage Against the Machine
  • The Chemical Brothers
  • Morrissey
  • A Perfect Circle
  • Jurassic 5
  • Underworld

Okay, Morrissey hasn’t aged particularly well. But then again, neither has Coachella; like every other big music festival, they’ve abandoned their alternative roots, switching to popular acts like Harry Styles and Bad Bunny for their most recent events.

Or maybe I’m just an increasingly older man shaking my fist at the clouds. Let’s see who’s on the docket for 2024… Oh look, it’s No Doubt. They announced last month that they’d be reuniting at Coachella, which would make this their first “official” show since 2015.

This is a fairly big deal. They’ve even got No Doubt props on the board at ne of our favorite betting sites, BetOnline (visit our BetOnline Review to learn more), not unlike what you’d normally find for the Super Bowl Halftime Show. Let’s dig deep, peel back the layers, and see if we can get some value out of this year’s Coachella odds.

What Is Coachella?

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was co-founded in 1999 by Paul Tollett (president and CEO of Goldenvoice, now under the AEG umbrella) and Rick Van Santen, but in a way, it was Pearl Jam who made this all happen.

Back in 1993, Pearl Jam famously refused to play at venues booked by Ticketmaster, so they played at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. That gig drew nearly 25,000 fans, so when the festival craze of the ‘90s kept growing, the Coachella Valley was an easy add to the calendar.

After the first festival was a success, early iterations of Coachella featured headliners like Jane’s Addiction, Bjork, Beastie Boys and Radiohead. But you know the score; by the 2010s, it was Jay-Z, Kings of Leon, Drake, and eventually Beyonce in 2018.

Who’s Performing At Coachella 2024?

The headline acts confirmed for 2024 are Lana Del Rey; Tyler, the Creator and Doja Cat. Several dozen supporting acts have been confirmed, and to be fair, there’s something for everyone, from Atarashii Gakko! to Young Fathers. Orbital’s going to be at Coachella this year. Blur is performing.

Make sure you mark the right dates on your calendar if you’re going to attend. Coachella is held on two separate weekends: April 12-14, and April 19-21. The same groups play the two Fridays, then it’s a completely different lineup for the two Saturdays, and again for the two Sundays.

Except we don’t know exactly when No Doubt will be on stage. They’re a late addition to the bill, and they don’t have any other tour dates planned as we go to press. But Coachella is basically their backyard, so why not?

Will They Play “Hella Good”?

Of course. No Doubt is about as divisive a group as it gets; they refused to stick to their third-wave ska roots coming out of Los Angeles, and it paid off in spades with Tragic Kingdom (1995), a tour de force that featured pop-punk thumper “Just a Girl” as its first single.

No Doubt slumped a bit with Return of Saturn (2000), but they were back in full force with Rock Steady (2001), where they worked with Sly & Robbie and the Neptunes, among others. “Hella Good” was the second of four singles from this eclectic album, and it’s arguably the best work that lead singer Gwen Stefani has ever done, including her solo career.

“Hella Good” is also the clear -1000 favorite at BetOnline to be their first song at Coachella. Nine other songs are also available at +1200, including “Just a Girl.” But if you look at their set lists from 2015, just before they went on hiatus, “Hella Good” was hitting lead-off, followed by their cover of Talk Talk’s “It’s My Life.”

Other No Doubt props on the Coachella odds list include the predominant color of Stefani’s top during the first song (White is the +100 favorite), whether they’ll introduce a guest star (Yes is -500), and whether they’ll perform any Stefani solo songs (Yes is -165).

By the way, the remaining three members of No Doubt (Tom Dumont, Tony Kanal and Adrian Young) performed this past October in L.A. at Musack’s Celebration of Terry Hall, in honor of the late singer from the Specials. Tom Morello from Rage Against the Machine joined them in a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “The Ghost of Tom Joad,” so maybe Morello will join them again now that the rumored RATM performance has been put on ice. Bet accordingly.
