Rage Against The Machine previously confirmed themselves as playing when their reunion became public back in November. The Instagram post the band made included the Coachella dates along with a small handful of other shows.

After parting ways in 2000, RATM released the cover album Renegades in December. A live album, Live At The Grand Olympic Auditorium, was released in 2003 featuring recordings from their final shows in Los Angeles in September 2000. The band later reunited at Coachella in 2007 before parting ways again after a final 2011 gig.
