The lawsuit claims that the California festival's radius clause, which places a limit on where artists can play before and after its event, violates federal anti-trust laws.

So its the first weekend of Coachella, and once again they're bringing an insanely diverse line-up so there's literally something for everyone. The Oregon festival's lawyer claimed that the radius clause violates anti-trust and unfair competition laws among many other things. Harris and Abdulhadi reached out to Goldenvoice to ask for a waiver, but the rep refused to give them one.

The anticipated annual two-weekend festival kicks off April 13 and wraps April 15. Other confirmed guests include The Weeknd, Eminem, and Beyoncé.

The British Prime Minister detailed "limited and targeted strikes" on chemical weapons facilities in Syria. Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon also said the strikes risked "dangerous escalation".

Soul'd Out's lawyer, Nicholas F. Aldrich, accuses Coachella organizers AEG and Goldenvoice of violating anti-trust laws by "unreasonably restricting price and cost of competition among live concert venues" and "limiting entry or expansion of competitors" in "the states of California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, or Arizona".

"The unlawful radius clause in their contracts with Coachella as the sole reason they can not do so", said Aldrich in reference to the artists they invited. Viewers will be given four options to live stream feeds with different artists at the same time, giving viewers the chance to experience ground coverage of two separate views. Now, three years later, Kygo has toured the world and is on his second stage installation which will no doubt make an appearance on Coachella's main stage this year.

Coachella Radio will then provide continuous coverage of the festival both weekends with live performances, artist interviews, as well as exclusive Coachella news and happenings.
