After several years of cancellations and postponements, the Coachella Music and Arts Festival is back with a vengeance, bringing with them the likes of Kanye West, Billie Eilish, Harry Styles, Megan Thee Stallion, Phoebe Bridgers, and Run the Jewels.
It was announced that Coachella will be returning in April of next year with a full lineup for the year 2022. In addition to Kanye West (known as Ye), Billie Eilish, Harry Styles, and Swedish House Mafia, Empire Polo Club in Indio will host the festival. The full festival line-up is available at the bottom of this page. April 15-17 and 22-24 will be the dates for Coachella 2022.
Phoebe Bridgers, Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Baby, 21 Savage, Danny Elfman, Doja Cat, Run the Jewels, Jamie xx, Carly Rae Jepsen, Vince Staples, Japanese Breakgast, Baby Keem, Caribou (and Daphni), City Girls, Denzel Curry, Caroline Polachek, 100 gecs, DJ Koze, Turnstile, Rina Sawayama, Freddie Gib Coachella’s YouTube channel will host a livestream of the event once again this year.
It was announced that Frank Ocean, Rage Against The Machine and Travis Scott would headline Coachella 2020 after COVID-19 was cancelled. Instead, Ocean is set to make her Coachella debut in 2023. Ten people died in the Astroworld 2021 disaster, which put Scott’s status as a headliner into question.
The event was originally scheduled to take place in March 2020. In an attempt to push the festival into October 2020, organizers were unsuccessful due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. As a result of the cancellation, AEG began a wave of layoffs, furloughs, shortened work weeks, and salary reductions. This was the first time Coachella had been cancelled in 20 years. Once again, Coachella was postponed until April 2021 due to the ongoing coronavirus concerns.
For the first time in nearly a decade, Coachella and Stagecoach festivals have announced that they will no longer require full vaccination for 2022 attendees. We are confident that we can update our health policy to allow for: Negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the event or proof of full vaccination,” organizers wrote on social media. All AEG-owned events and facilities across the country were previously required to have a vaccine policy in place.
