Billie Eilish And Kanye West Headlining Coachella 2022: Report
Coachella, like every other major festival, has had to change their plans again and again thanks to the various waves of the pandemic. Back in 2020, it intended to throw a festival headlined by Rage Against The Machine, Frank Ocean, and Travis Scott. After Coachella couldn’t happen in either 2020 or 2021, that original lineup has undergone some changes. We already know Frank Ocean will instead headline in 2023 and there have been rumblings that RATM and Travis Scott won’t be at 2022 edition either. Now Billboard confirms none of those artists will be at the 2022 event.
TMZ first reported today that Billie Eilish has been added to the lineup, and Variety added that Kanye West is in the mix too. Billboard says Eilish is likely headlining Friday and West on Sunday. (Ye is reportedly also considered holding a separate Sunday Service there like he did a few years ago.)
The reunited Swedish House Mafia previously announced they’d be performing at Coachella 2022, and were widely considered one of the headliners, but Billboard says Goldenvoice are currently considering moving them to a different slot. Eilish and West (with his Sunday Service Choir) both performed at Coachella in 2019. Swedish House Mafia were there in 2012.
The full lineup usually drops around this time of year, so perhaps we’ll see the whole picture soon. The event is scheduled for April 15-17 and April 22-24 at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio.
