Coachella is around the corner, if not canceled again due to COVID-19.


Each spring, music lovers from all around the world flock to the California desert for one of the most iconic festivals in the world – Coachella.

Since 2019, the festival has been canceled due to COVID, which has continuously posed a threat to the world. With the event being moved again due to the ongoing threat of the Omicron variant, Coachella's organizers are currently looking into rescheduling it again. With the schedule aside, there are some things that the organizers have confirmed, one of which is the headliners.

The festival was originally set to take place in October 2020, but the coronavirus pandemic forced it to be postponed. This marked the first time that the event was canceled in two decades. It was then rescheduled to April 2021 and canceled in January 2021.

In October, the festivals announced that they would no longer require concert goers to complete a full vaccination. After seeing the low cases of COVID-19 at other festivals, the promoters said they were confident in their health policy.

"After seeing first-hand the low transmission data and successful implementation of safety protocols at our other festivals this past month, we feel confident that we can update our health policy to allow for: Negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the event OR proof of full vaccination," the statement read.

As of now, Coachella is still scheduled to take place from April 15th to 24th, 2022. The festival will be held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. It is about a three-hour drive away from Los Angeles. There are also campsites at the site, including Lake Eldorado.

Coachella 2022 headliners
Travis Scott and Rage Against The Machine were initially slated to headline the festival in 2020 before it was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. It has been confirmed that both artists will not return to headline the 2022 Coachella.

According to a report by Billboard, rapper Kanye West and singer Billie Eilish had been in talks to replace the two artists.

After initially naming Frank Ocean as the third headliner, festival co-founder Paul Tollett revealed that he would be back as the top artist for 2023. Following this, it was rumored that Taylor Swift or Cardi B would be the third act.
