The lineup for the 2023 Corona Capital music festival has been unveiled, with a distinctly Britpop and indie theme throughout the lineup.

British stars of the 1980s and 1990s abound, with headline spots from Blur, Pulp and Oasis’ Noel Gallagher – playing the festival one year after his brother (and archnemesis) Liam. 

Sunday’s headline act is New Wave/indie legends The Cure. Other British acts this year include Two Door Cinema Club, Hot Chip and Ben Howard.

Other main attractions include the band Thirty Seconds To Mars, fronted by Oscar-winning actor Jared Leto, as well as Canada’s Arcade Fire and Alanis Morissette. 

Hidden within the extensive lineup are also a number of underrated artists, including former One Direction member Niall Horan, 2011 meme sensation Rebecca Black and moody dance producer Zhu, helping the festival to cater to a range of different musical tastes and genres.

Corona Capital recently ranked eighth on a list of most anticipated North American music festivals, in a survey conducted by UK hotel chain Premier Inn. The company based its results on the combined number of Spotify listeners from each band playing at the festival.

Corona Capital is one of the biggest music festivals of the Mexican calendar, attracting stars from across the globe. The 2022 event included Arctic Monkeys, Paramore, My Chemical Romance and Miley Cyrus.

Ticket presales began Thursday, with priority given to Citibank customers. The general sale begins Saturday at 2 p.m.
