Rumours that West, Eilish and Styles were set to headline this year’s Coachella emerged earlier this month. Travis Scott was reportedly set to top the bill but was allegedly removed following the crowd crush tragedy at his Astroworld event last year.
The reunited Rage Against the Machine, who were set to perform at the 2020 edition of the festival, do not appear on the bill for this year’s event.
The headline set will mark Styles’ debut Coachella performance. Eilish will be the youngest-ever headliner at Coachella, following a huge breakout performance at the festival back in 2019. In a glowing review of the performance, NME hailed the pop star as “a future headliner”.
Coachella had its 2020 festival postponed twice due to the pandemic. It was rescheduled to April 2021, but postponed once again in January of that year, when the public health officer in charge of Riverside County, where the festival is held, signed a public health order cancelling Coachella and its sister festival, the country music event Stagecoach.
The line-up for Coachella 2022 is:
Swedish House Mafia
Louis the Child
King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard
Carly Rae Jepsen
The Martinez Brothers
Purple Disco Machine
Amyl and the Sniffers
Giselle Woo and the Night Owls
