Coachella formalizes 2022 return with April dates
The Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival will return to Indio Valley for two consecutive weekends of cross-genre programming to be held across April 15 – 17 and 22 – 24 of 2022. The dates, confirmed by festival coordinators on June 1, validate prior speculation that the next iteration of the California event would take place in April of 2022.
The revelation of the 2022 dates marks the end of a long and tumultuous period for the festival’s parent company, which was forced to postpone Coachella three times in less than one year due to COVID-19-related health concerns. The successive postponements culminated in an absence of Coachella operation for the first time since 2000.
Headlining acts for the original 2020 dates were in high demand, including Travis Scott, Frank Ocean and, prospectively, Rage Against the Machine. Though the performers for the festival’s formal reactivation have yet to be named, those planning to attend the desert event can register here for access to the 2022 advance ticket sale. Tickets will go on-sale June 4 at 1:00 p.m. ET / 10:00 a.m. PT.
