Coachella's YouTube Livestream Schedule Is Here

After a two year wait — and plenty of headliner drama — the festival finally kicks off Friday.

After being rescheduled four times since its original event in April 2020, Coachella is finally making its long-awaited return on April 15-17 and 22-24, 2022 at its usual location in the deserts of Indio, California.

While many other music festivals like Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Governors Ball took the plunge and committed to putting on a 2021 event in the fall, Goldenvoice, the organizers behind Coachella and its sister festival Stagecoach, made the decision to hold off until 2022.

“There’s a big difference between having two weekends of Coachella in California and throwing a country festival in Florida,” an insider source told Variety earlier this year.

Now that the two weekends are a go, here’s everything that you need to know about attending the desert extravaganza in 2022, and streaming it from home.

Coachella 2022 Lineup

The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia will replace Kanye West as Coachella’s Sunday night headliner, Variety confirmed on Wednesday, April 6.

West officially pulled out of Coachella on April 4, Variety and TMZ reported. While the reasons for his withdrawal were not immediately clear, sources told Variety that he had not rehearsed nor prepared a show.

As predicted, Swedish House Mafia has now been bumped to take over West’s slot alongside The Weeknd. The EDM trio had been listed on the festival poster as a main performer, though without a date listed. It’s suspected that Coachella might have included them as their back-up option if West pulled out of the festival last-minute — which he’s done in the past — and did on Monday. The Weeknd has been a longtime collaborator to Swedish House Mafia, and recently released the track “Moth To A Flame” with the group.

West’s appearance at Coachella had been growing in controversy for a while now. The past few months had been especially rocky for the star as he’d publicly lashed out against Kim Kardashian, Pete Davidson, and others online. In February, West himself also threatened to pull out of Coachella if Billie Eilish didn’t issue an apology to Travis Scott for a perceived diss against the rapper, though it’s unclear if his withdrawal was directly related to that incident. More recently, fans online circulated a petition with over 25K signatures demanding Coachella to remove West from the festival. Representatives for Coachella have yet to release a statement about the situation.

Harry Styles and Billie Eilish are still expected to headline the festival on Friday and Saturday, respectively.

Over 150 artists are slated to perform at the festival with notable acts including Lil Baby, Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, Phoebe Bridgers, Big Sean, Disclosure, 21 Savage, Jamie xx, Maggie Rogers, Ari Lennox, Stroemae, Brockhampton, and more. The collective 88rising will also have a major presence at the festival as they’ll be debuting something called Head In The Clouds Forever at the festival.

Coachella 2022 Dates & Location

Coachella 2022 is returning to its usual time and place in the spring for two weekends in April: the 15-17 and 22-24. It’ll take place in Indio, California at the Empire Polo Club: 81-800 Avenue 51, Indio, CA 92201.

Coachella 2022 COVID-19 Regulations

Coachella will no longer require proof of vaccination from ticket holders in a surprise reversal of its COVID-19 policy for the 2022 festival, organizers announced on Wednesday Oct. 13. A negative Covid test taken within 72 hours before the event will instead be the only requirement, with the option to provide proof of vaccination.

Announcing the change via the festival’s Instagram story, organizers wrote: “After seeing first-hand the low transmission data and successful implementation of safety protocols at our other festivals this past month, we feel confident 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.”

Previously, organizers announced in August 2021 that they would require all concert attendees and staff to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, as music promoter AEG mandated the policy for all of their festivals, venues, and concerts.
