Every year, the music festival draws a huge crowd, which include many A-list celebrities. Nearly quarter of a million people were present there in 2017, writes BBC.
Grande and Tame Impala tweeted about the highly-anticipated event via their official Twitter handles.

It was reported that Kanye West was also one of the headliners but the rapper dropped out owing to a disagreement with the organisers, Goldenvoice, over the stage set-up, according to a report by TMZ. The report further states that West did not want to perform on the festival's 40×60 foot stage as he found it "artistically limiting." The organisers, however, turned down West's demand because they did not want to "compromise the other acts" to accomodate his performance.
Last year's edition was headlined by Beyonce, The Weeknd and Eminem. Other artists who performed included Tyler the Creator, SZA, Cardi B and Miguel.
