Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga will be filming scenes for A Star Is Born at Coachella this week. On Sunday, April 16, festivalgoers received a message through the Coachella app announcing how they could nab a chance to appear in the upcoming Cooper-directed musical.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, a country-music concert scene will be filmed at the Southern California festival. Attendees are asked to wear country-western garb and must consent to having their phones locked away inside special smart cases.
An official announcement on the AEG ticketing site reads: “All you Monsters that can attend should get decked out in your most comfortable denim & boots, throw on a Stetson (leave those pink Joanne hats at home), and come out to show your support!”
Attendance costs $10, with all proceeds going to Gaga’s Born This Way foundation. The nonprofit is dedicated to youth support and building better communities.
A Star Is Born is just getting under way, and cinematographer Matthew Libatique shared an inaugural social post last week.
This will be the fourth time Hollywood has told the story of A Star Is Born, starting in 1937. A 1954 remake starred Judy Garland, and a 1976 take featured Barbra Streisand. The tale follows a young starlet whose career is bolstered by a big-name love interest whose own fortunes are on the downswing.
A Star Is Born is expected to hit the screen in September 2018.
