Coachella Announces its Return to the Festival Circuit…in 2022

Coachella will officially return on the weekend of April 15, 2022.

On Tuesday, promoter Goldenvoice, organizers of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, announced the event’s return. The festival will return to the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California on the weekends of April 15-17 and April 29-May 1st. This announcement marks the fourth re-scheduling of the festival in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Our homecoming is officially set for April 2022,” the announcement reads. “Weekend one will take place on April 15-17, 2022 and weekend two on April 22-24, 2022. Our advance sale begins this Friday, June 4th at 10am PT. More time to plan and more time to pay for your passes over time with our flexible payment plan options. Information about flexible payment plans and more at coachella.com.”

If you can’t make it out to California, the festival will once again be officially live-streamed on YouTube.

“We’re back and thrilled to be partnering with Goldenvoice for the 10th year to live stream the iconic Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on YouTube,” YouTube said in a statement. “As the world’s biggest virtual stage, we are more excited than ever to celebrate live music and to bring two weekends of extraordinary performances to music fans around the world.”

Headliners will likely be announced closer to the new year. The scheduled headliners for 2020 included a reunion concert for Rage Against the Machine, Run the Jewels, Travis Scott and Frank Ocean. Summer Walker, Daniel Caesar, FKA Twigs, and Ari Lennox had also signed on before the official postponement.
