On January 2, Coachella organizers announced the lineup for the 2020 festival, which included Koffee as a supporting act to headliner, Travis Scott.

In recent years, only two reggae acts have hit the Coachella stage: Chronixx and Protoje, who both performed in 2016.
With just one full-length project, Koffee has already become one of the most promising reggae acts in recent years. Last year, he became the youngest solo reggae artist to be nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Reggae Album category for her debut album Rapture.
She has been included in both the Summer and Year-end playlists by former US President, Barack Obama. In 2019, she toured with Grammy-award winning R&B artist, Daniel Caesar and is gearing up to tour with British singer, Harry Styles, later this year.
