Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is slated to make its highly-anticipated return to the California desert this April. The mega festival takes place on two separate weekends – April 15-17 and April 22-24 – at Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. While other 2022 festival lineups have been impressive, no festival bill quite compares to the variety of talent that Goldenvoice brings together year after year. They not only hit nearly every genre, but they book almost all the top names in each musical niche.
Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival 2022
In 2022, Coachella Valley will see performances from some of the most prominent and impactful artists in the world. Headlining the festival are Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, and Ye, three of the most acclaimed musicians of our generation. In addition to the main headliners, Swedish House Mafia will be making their grand return to the desert. Moreover, 88rising’s Head in the Clouds Forever presents special performances each weekend.
Coachella 2022 Lineup
Though Coachella presents artists from all genres and all over the world, the renowned festival has a heavy focus on hip-hop. Aside from Ye, other rappers taking stage in the valley include Lil Baby, 21 Savage, Big Sean, Baby Keem, Megan Thee Stallion, BROCKHAMPTON, Run the Jewels, Doja Cat, Denzel Curry, Vince Staples, and so many more.

However, if you aren’t a hip-hop fan, there are still plenty of artists to enjoy at Coachella. This includes a spectrum of electronic music artists.
