Harry Styles will headline, along with Billie Eilish and Kanye West, this year’s Coachella Festival, the largest music event in North America, according to news.ro.
It will be the first time that the Englishman Styles will play at the festival, and several sources claim – according to Variety – that he will release new songs before the performance. Recently, he completed the largest North American tour supported by an artist since the beginning of the pandemic.
Harry Styles has not released an album from “Fine Line”, released in December 2019.
Kanye West, who recently changed her name to Ye, was the headliner at Coachella in 2011, and Billie Eilish sang at the festival in 2019, when, at the age of 20, she was the youngest artist on event poster. West and Eilish were announced a week ago as headliners in 2022.
Lil Baby, Daniel Caesar, Phoebe Bridgers, Big Sean, Megan Thee Stallion, 21 Savage, Danny Elfman, Doja Cat, Joji and Run the Jewels are part of the lineup announced Wednesday night by the organizers. The American press writes that the Swedish House Mafia would also sing at the festival, but it has not been confirmed yet.
The festival, already sold out, is scheduled to take place this year on the weekends of April 15-17 and April 22-24 at the usual Empire Polo Ground in Indio, California. For this year’s edition, 125,000 tickets / day were sold.
Due to the increase in the number of SARS-CoV-2 infections and the postponement or change of the program of several events, there is a risk that this festival will also change.
This year’s 21st edition was supposed to take place in 2020, but has been postponed until now due to the pandemic.
