Now that festival season is winding down (just in time for the impending return of Yeezy SZN), fans and organizers alike are already looking forward to next year.

According to reports citing "informed sources" close to the annual festival, Coachella 2019 could prove to be one of its best installments yet. Per Hits Daily Double, several artists are reportedly in talks to headline next year, including Childish Gambino, Justin Timberlake and Kanye West.

This past week, Gambino was forced to reschedule the remaining dates of his 'This Is America' Tour for December after suffering a nondescript foot injury. He previously declared the tour would be his final run under the Gambino moniker, so the fact that he is possibly considering Coachella has certainly delighted his loyal fans already.

Timberlake is also currently on tour, which is set to conclude in January 2019 in Colorado, making his schedule clear to take on a large scale production tailored to a festival crowd. And of course, that leaves West, whose ego would best be served if he was the only headliner.

In the past, West performed in 2011, sharing co-headlining duties with The Strokes, while Gambino graced the reputed stage the following year. Timberlake, however, has not yet performed at Coachella.

As pointed out by XXL, Daily Hits Double's early projections have been correct in the past, accurately reporting the headlining artists for 2015 and 2017. At the time of this report, none of the rumored artists have issued a statement, nor have official representatives for the festival commented.
