You Can Watch Coachella 2022 Performances Here

Beginning Friday, fans can catch performances from The Weeknd, Megan Thee Stallion and more on the 2022 Coachella YouTube livestream.

Coachella weekend has arrived. From Friday, April 15th to Sunday, April 17th, fans can catch the YouTube livestream with scheduled performances from headliners The Weeknd, Billie Eilish, Swedish House Mafia and Harry Styles, along with sets from Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, Run the Jewels and more.

Confirmed set during the livestream will feature a total of 90 acts including Baby Keem, Denzel Curry, Vince Staples, Freddie Gibbs & Madlib, BROCKHAMPTON, Lil Baby, Slowthai, Japanese Breakfast, Ari Lennox and more.

Earlier this month, The Weeknd announced on social media that he will be Ye’s replacement for the music festival, performing back-to-back on Sunday, April 17th and 24th.

The Canadian singer last performed at the festival in 2018, but this time, he’ll be joined by Swedish House Mafia for a 10:20 performance slot.

Ye was originally set to headline both Sundays of Coachella, also declaring that he would bring Travis Scott as a performance guest, but cancelled just weeks before. “For the sake of their kids, Kanye told Kim he’s not making any public appearances or inflammatory social media statements, and he will go away somewhere to get better,” the source said, mentioning that Ye was “going away to get help.”

Prior to Coachella, the rapper was pulled from the 2022 Grammy Awards for “concerning online behavior,” according to his representative. Despite not appearing at the ceremony, Ye won Best Rap Song (“Jail”) and Best Melodic Rap Performance (“Hurricane.”)

Catch the full Coachella schedule here. The livestream will begin tonight at 7 PM ET.
