Madonna has confirmed she will perform April 30 at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, Calif. The artist will appear backed by a live band in the festival’s dance and electronica-oriented Sahara Tent, which has been headlined in past years by Kraftwerk, Underworld and Fatboy Slim, among others. "I’ve never performed at a festival," Madonna says, "and I’m especially excited about playing at Coachella before I start my own tour." (BIllboard)
