This year’s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival lineup has been revealed and will feature performances by Bad Bunny, Frank Ocean, and K-Pop stars BLACKPINK. The festival is set to run over two consecutive weekends, April 14-16 and April 21-23. Other artists scheduled to perform are Gorillaz, Rosalia, Bjork and more. Ocean, who was booked to play the 2020 edition before it was cancelled due to the pandemic, will make his return to the festival having previously performed a side stage in 2012. Bad Bunny, meanwhile, would become the first Spanish-language artist to headline the main stage – an appropriate choice given his 2022 tour was the top grossing of the year with $373.5 million.
Last year’s Coachella provided an amazing lineup of acts, with Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, The Weeknd, and Swedish House Mafia taking the spotlight in lieu of the cancellation of both 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event was full of electrifying and unexpected moments such as Styles performing a medley of Shania Twain’s “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” and “You’re Still the One” with her, Eilish bringing out Blur frontman Damon Albarn to deliver “Getting Older” and the Gorillaz’s “Feel Good Inc.,” Justin Bieber’s surprise performance with Daniel Caesar to sing “Peaches,” and 2NE1’s reunion with CL during 88Rising’s Heads in the Clouds Forever showcase.
