Guns N' Roses and LCD Soundsystem, two of the most influential bands in recent decades, will both get back together for the Coachella festival in April.

Coachella, which takes place over two weekends in the California desert, confirmed the reunions as it announced its line-up this week.

The concerts are expected to mark the first time that the original Guns N' Roses lineup - including singer Axl Rose and guitarist Slash - have performed together since July 1993 in Buenos Aires.

The band's Appetite for Destruction from 1987 remains the top-selling debut album by a group in the US, where it sold 18million copies.

LCD Soundsystem, a younger band from New York, was influential in developing the electronica scene of the 2000s.

Other acts confirmed include South Africa's DJ Black Coffee, Ice Cube, Ellie Goulding, Sufjan Stevens and electronic act Major Lazer, best known for the massive 2015 hit Lean On.
