AC/DC will headline this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, performing April 10 and 17 at Indio, Calif. These are the first confirmed North American dates — though others have been rumored — in their world tour supporting ‘Rock or Bust.’

Steely Dan and Jack White are also on the newly announced Coachella bill. White will headline on April 11 and 18; Steely Dan is also set to appear on April 10 and 17.

The rest of the 2015 lineup is made up, as per usual, with more pop- and rap-leaning stars — though classic-rock artists have made their presence known at Coachella over the years. You can see the full lineup here.

Slash and Motorhead played last year. Debbie Harry also joined indie stars Arcade Fire on stage for an energized version of Blondie‘s 1978 hit ‘Heart of Glass.’

John Fogerty and the Black Keys memorably paid tribute to Levon Helm during Coachella 2012, just days after the drummer for the Band died. Then there was the time Motley Crue‘s Tommy Lee got himself permanently banned from the annual music event.
