Coachella Has Released It's 2022 Lineup. Discuss Amongst Yourselves.

Variety - Harry Styles will join headliners Billie Eilish and Kanye West at the Coachella festival, sources confirm to Variety. Swedish House Mafia are also expected to perform, although it is unclear whether or not they are headliners. The official announcement and full lineup were released on Wednesday evening.

This will be the’ first performance at the festival by Styles, who sources say may release new music before the performance. He recently completed the biggest North American tour by any major artist since the pandemic began in early 2020, although he has not released a new album since “Fine Line” in December of 2019 and rumors about new music have been rife in recent weeks. The news of his presence on the bill was first reported by Billboard; Variety broke the news of West’s performance last week.

West was a Coachella headliner in 2011 and Eilish had a breakthrough performance in at the festival in 2019 (at 20, she is the youngest artist to top the Coachella bill); SHM previously performed at Coachella in 2012.

The most pretentious music festival in the United States has announced its lineup for this year's festival. 

Love them or hate them, there are some big names slated for this shindig. 

The sad part is they could have listed Sharon, Lois, and Braham headlining and tickets would have sold out sight unseen.

Coachella is North America’s largest music festival and has already sold all of its 125,000 per-day tickets, and the sheer logistics of more than 100,000 people traveling to and gathering at a single location create immeasurable possibilities for disease transmission.

While the original headliners of this 21st installment of the festival — first announced in January of 2020 — were Travis Scott, Frank Ocean and Rage Against the Machine, the festival has been postponed due to the pandemic four times. Last year, Ocean moved his appearance to 2023, and Scott was removed from the bill in the wake of the Astroworld tragedy in November, although sources tell Variety that his agent fought to keep him on the bill.

This festival sells out before the lineup is even announced. Figure that one out.

But don't be mistaken. It's not because the kids buying the tickets know the lineup will be solid no matter what. It's because they need to take pictures and post to social media in front of that Goddamn ferris wheel, wearing the chic-boho-couture outfit they dropped a rent check on just for this occasion, and geo-tagging it.
