The full line-up announcement follows the news that rock legends Motorhead will be playing at this year's festival.

Muse will headline for the second time and follow in the footsteps of British bands Blur and The Stone Roses, who topped the bill in 2013 alongside Phoenix and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Nas, Lana Del Rey, Beady Eye and Haim are also among the names who will perform at the festival, which is now in its 15th year.

Alana from LA trio Haim tweeted a picture of the line-up and wrote: "I think I just peed in my pants."

Last month Arcade Fire, who will also headline the festival for a second time, were named as the first headliners of Glastonbury in June.

Previous headliners of Coachella include Kanye West, Radiohead and Kings Of Leon.
