Coachella 2019 is set to host Donald Glover and Rihanna's new movie 'Guava Island' live from the music festival.
Coachella 2019 kicks off this very Friday for its first weekend of music and now, movies.
Donald Glover and Rihanna's mysterious new movie 'Guava Island' is set to premiere live after Childish Gambino's set at Coachella. The movie will be available to stream on Amazon Prime right after his set, and will be playing at the festival's specially made theatre for the weekend.
Filmed in Havana, Cuba, the movie has been described as a "tropical thriller" based "on Guava Island, a local musician is determined to throw a festival for everyone to enjoy."
Catch the brief teaser of 'Guava Island' below.

Sounding like a creepy mash-up of 'The Beach' and Netflix's 'FYRE Festival' doc, the new movie will be an hour long. Add to that the fact that 'Black Panther' and 'Black Mirror' star Letitia Wright will also star, as well as 'Game of Thrones''s Nonso Anozie, and 'Guava Island' has us hooked.
Those of us who weren't lucky enough to get tickets (or make the effort to head over to California) can live-stream loads of the top acts from the comfort of their sofa. Streaming live on YouTube both weekends, will be artists such as Ariana Grande, The 1975, Maggie Rogers, CHVRCHES, DJ Snake, Kid Cudi, Weezer, and many others. Of course, not forgetting our very own Dermot Kennedy, who will be taking to the stage this Sunday.
Coachella 2019 will run for two weekends, from tomorrow, and then the following Easter weekend (which just released extra tickets, if you fancy it).
