Coachella 2016 Set Times Announced

Don't worry, GNR fans — the noise curfew at Coachella on Saturday is 1:30 a.m.

Goldenvoice finally released Coachella set times this morning, so you and your friends can now commence arguing over who to see. Rae Sremmurd or Jack U? Underworld or Sasha? Flume or Miike Snow? (Maybe our ranking of every Coachella act will help you resolve conflicts.)

As expected, Guns N' Roses are scheduled to go on slightly early for a headliner, most likely to allow extra time in case Axl decides to get his foot cast reset 10 minutes before showtime. They're supposed to take the Coachella Stage at 10:30 p.m., opposite Canadian jazz group BadBadNotGood, synth-pop songstress Grimes and EDM stars Justin Martin and Zhu — all of whom will likely play to the weekend's emptiest tents.

Other notable sets times include LCD Soundsystem (11:10 p.m. Friday, on the Coachella Stage), Calvin Harris (10:35 p.m. Sunday on the Coachella Stage), RL Grime (midnight Saturday, headlining the Sahara Tent) and Ice Cube (9:05 p.m. Saturday on the Coachella Stage, right before GNR).

Perhaps the weirdest thing about the schedule is when the gates open at 11 a.m. each day, only the dance-centric Yuma Tent will have music. Maybe Goldenvoice is hoping to funnel the festival's few early arrivals all into one area, so the DJs won't be playing to such an empty room? At any rate, the sacrificial lambs kicking off the festival each day are Masha (Friday), Lee K (Saturday) and Lisbona Sisters (Sunday).

If you're not going, you can still view select sets via a live stream on Coachella's YouTube channel. No word yet on which sets will be streamed.
