Billie Eilish, Kanye to headline much-postponed Coachella in April

Billie Eilish and Kanye West are slated to headline the 2022 version of North The us’s greatest (and four-time postponed) track pageant – Coachella.

Reporting this, ‘Selection’ famous that Swedish Space Mafia (SHM) could also be at the invoice, even supposing it’s unclear whether or not the crowd is the already-sold-out pageant’s 3rd headliner – the normal “throwback” slot for the reunion of a extra veteran artiste.

West headlined the pageant in 2011 and Eilish had a leap forward efficiency in 2019 (she will be the youngest artiste to most sensible the Coachella invoice); SHM in the past carried out at Coachella in 2012.

The pageant is scheduled to happen over the weekends of April 15-17 and April 22-24, 2022, at its standard location: Empire Polo Flooring in Indio, California.

The alarming Omicron surge and the postponement of the Grammy Awards, then again, has left many questioning whether or not the pageant will happen in April, or be moved – for a 5th time – to a later date.

Coachella has already offered out its 125,000 per-day tickets, and the sheer logistics of greater than 100,000 folks travelling to and collecting at a unmarried location create immeasurable chances for illness transmission, in keeping with ‘Selection’.

The unique headliners of this twenty first installment of the pageant — first introduced in January 2020 — have been Travis Scott, Frank Ocean and Rage Towards the Device, the pageant has been postponed because of the pandemic 4 instances. Final 12 months, Ocean moved his look to 2023, and Scott was once dropped from the invoice within the wake of the Astroworld tragedy in November.

Rage, too, is reported to be off the invoice.
