Harry Styles, Billie Eilish and Ye Headline Coachella's Huge 2022 Lineup

Start saving for that airfare — or planning that weekend on the couch watching the livestream.

It's been a tough time for huge music festivals over the past two years, including one of the biggest there is: Coachella. The 2020 event was less than a month out from its April dates when it postponed until October due to COVID-19 — and then, a few months later, it cancelled that year's fest completely. The aim was to return in April 2021 instead; however, unsurprisingly, that didn't happen either. But now the event has announced that it's definitely intending to make a comeback in April this year — and it's dropped its hefty lineup, too..

Mark April 15–17 and April 22–24 in your diaries, whether you're just keen to check out the livestream — remember, Coachella was livestreaming its sets long before the pandemic — or you have US travel plans for this autumn. The full bill is a jaw-dropper, as usual, with Harry Styles headlining the Friday nights, Billie Eilish doing the Saturday nights and Ye (aka the artist formerly known as Kanye West) on Sunday nights.

Elsewhere, a bonafide metric fucktonne of squealworthy acts fill out the rest of the bill — Australia's own Flume and The Avalanches, plus Swedish House Mafia, Phoebe Bridgers, Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, Jamie xx, Run the Jewels, Fatboy Slim, Finneas and Joji, just to name a few.

Anyway, let's be honest, you haven't truly read any of those words — you'll be wanting this:

For music lovers planning to watch along from home, Coachella will once again team up with YouTube to livestream the festival. That's no longer such a novelty in these pandemic times but, given the calibre of Coachella's lineup, it's still a mighty fine way to spend a weekend.

For those eager to attend, the first weekend is sold out, but you can signup for the waitlist over at the festival's website — and also register for tickets to the second weekend, too, which go on sale on Friday, January 14 US time.

Coachella runs from April 15–17 and April 22–24 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. Find out more info and register for tickets or the waitlist at coachella.com.
