Coachella (Weekend 1) is just days away and the festival's set times have just been unveiled. On Friday, SZA will perform immediately before headliner the Weeknd, but attendees will have to decide between seeing Kelela or Skip Marley (Bob's grandson) in the afternoon. Saturday will see Post Malone, Jorja Smith and Tyler the Creator deliver their own sets at different stages across the grounds before Beyonce takes the spotlight. And on Sunday, when several performances overlap, fans will have to choose between Migos and Kamaiyah; Jidenna and French Montana; and Lion Babe, Noname, and THEY.

Cardi B, however, will be taking the main stage several hours before headliner Eminem on Sunday. It's a booking that she recently admitted she'll lose money on, but understands is worth it in the long run. She told SiriusXM's Hip Hop Nation:

"We been booked Coachella like six months ago, seven months ago, so I'm getting paid for Coachella like $70,000 a day. Like I been got booked for this. And then it's like, I have to invest so much money on my stage set, my own money that I gotta go Wells-Fargo and write a check [for] that it's crazy, almost $300,000. It's an investment. You gotta take that, you gotta take that to the chin. But it's like, damnit! Right after I just finished paying my damn taxes!"

Cardi B didn't know how big of a deal Coachella is
