Guava Island will be screened as a one-time premiere at the festival on 12 April.
Last week, ads for Childish Gambino’s Guava Island project appeared on Spotify. Now, it’s been announced that the project is, in fact, a film and it’s set to be premiered during the first weekend of Coachella. For those who haven’t bought tickets to the event, the premiere will be lived streamed via Coachella’s Youtube channel.
Coachella is set to be held over two weekends, on 12-14 and 19-21 April, at the Empire Polo Club in Indio. News of Donald Glover’s Guava Island project first emerged in August 2018 when images of the artist on set with Rihanna in Cuba circulated online. A surprise trailer was later dropped at Glover’s Pharos festival in New Zealand, featuring the pair as lovers and partners in crime.
Earlier this year, collaborator Christian Sprenger listed Guava as a visual album on his CV, which was posted to his Artistry profile. It’s since been removed from the resume. We’ve reached out to Sprenger and a representative for Glover for comment.
