The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is back in 2022 after two years of postponements and cancellations due to the pandemic. And the lineup is worth all the wait. Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, Ye (formerly known as Kanye West) and Swedish House Mafia are the headliners.
Last year’s interaction — with headliners Rage Against the Machine, Travis Scott and Frank Ocean — was postponed several times. Billboard confirmed that Scott and Rage Against the Machine will not be a part of the festival this year while Ocean is expected to perform in 2023.
The festival will span across two weekends: April 15 to 17 and April 22 to 24. Eilish took to Instagram to share the 2022 lineup.
Friday, April 15 and 22
Styles will headline the festival for the first time on April 15 and 22. But before he takes the stage, people can expect performances by Phoebe Bridgers, Big Sean, Carly Rae Jepsen, slowthai, MIKA, Princess Nokia, Purple Disco Machine and Logic100.
Saturday, April 16 and 23
Eilish also makes history as Coachella’s youngest headliner at 20 years old. She will perform on April 16 and 23. Flume, Disclosure, Megan Thee Stallion, Brockhampton, girl in red, Koffee, Hot Chip, Steve Lacy, Arlo Parks, Floating Points and Holly Humberstone will take the stage before Eilish.
Sunday, April 17 and 24
Ye headlined Coachella back in 2011 as Kanye West, according to Newsweek, though he has made several appearances on stage alongside artists like The Weeknd and Kid Cudi. Other artists performing on Sunday are Doja Cat, Joji, Jamie XX, Maggie Rogers, Fatboy Slim, Dave, Honey Dijon, Orville Peck, Sampa the Great,\ and Duke Dumont.
Additionally, Swedish House Mafia is also expected to perform although it is unclear whether the group is headlining or not, per Variety. All we know is that it is “returning to the desert.”
