Jan 3 2020, 7:10 pm

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is already a bit of a circus and this spring, one of its DJs will be the founder of one.

Coachella unveiled its lineup for the 2020 edition this past week and it features a prominent Quebecer, Guy Laliberté.

The founder of Cirque du Soleil, who sold his majority stake in the company for $1.5 billion in 2015, has switched his focus to DJing and will make his Coachella debut on the festival’s third day, joining the likes of Frank Ocean, Lana Del Rey, Daniel Caesar, and dozens of other high-profile performers.

The 60-year-old Quebec native, whose net worth is estimated at $1.1 billion, has been busy since selling Cirque, building a private island and most recently, unveiled the PY1 Pyramid in Old Montreal.
