Billie Eilish, Harry Styles and Kanye West headline 2022 Coachella

Billie Eilish, Harry Styles and Kanye West will headline the 2022 Coachella music festival, organizers have announced.

The world-famous event, taking place in the Southern California desert, has experienced multiple delays and cancellations due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It’s set to return over two weekends this year – April 15-17 and April 22-24.

Watermelon Sugar singer Styles will headline both Fridays, with Eilish taking the Saturdays and global megastar West, aka Ye, taking the Sunday slots.

Also in Friday’s line-up are Lil Baby, Phoebe Bridgers, slowthai and Bristol-based punk rockers IDLES.

Saturday’s line-up includes Flume, 21 Savage and WAP singer Megan Thee Stallion, as well as award-winning London musician Arlo Parks.

Doja Cat, Jamie XX, Run The Jewels and Fat Boy Slim join West in Sunday’s line-up.

Electronic supergroup Swedish House Mafia has also been announced as returning to the desert.

Organizers said the first weekend of the festival has already sold out, with advance booking for the second weekend set to begin at 6pm UK time on Friday.

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival takes place in the Indian Desert near Palm Springs and attracted around 250,000 visitors in 2019.

The 2020 event was scheduled for April this year before being pushed back to October due to the global pandemic.

It was then pushed back to April 2021 before being canceled again due to the health crisis.

The canceled Coachella was set to be helmed by Travis Scott, Frank Ocean and political rap metal band Rage Against The Machine.
