Surprise! Blink-182 is playing Coachella.

The reunited punk trio is a last-minute addition to the festival, which kicks off this weekend. According to the just-announced set time schedule, Blink will play a 50-minute set from 6:45 p.m. to 7:35 p.m. PT on the smaller Sahara stage Friday, April 14.

The performance will mark Blink’s first show back since guitarist/vocalist Tom DeLonge rejoined the band last year. The group was supposed to launch a tour of Mexico and South America in March, but those dates were postponed due to drummer Travis Barker needing surgery on his finger.

Presumably, the Coachella set indicates that Barker is all healed up, and Blink’s upcoming U.S. tour will kick off as scheduled in May.

Coachella weekend one takes place April 14-16, followed by weekend two April 21-23. Other artists on the lineup include Wet Leg, Gorillaz, Yungblud, boygenius, Björk, Blondie, The Breeders, The Linda Lindas and Cannons. Bad Bunny, Blackpink and Frank Ocean will headline.

Sets from both weekends and all stages will stream live on YouTube.
