Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will return to the desert this April. Organizers announced the event will be back from April 15-17 and April 22-24.
The festival is one of the most viral musical stages for legendary performances. In the past, we’ve seen Beyonce’s iconic 2018 tribute featuring Jay-Z, Solange, and Destiny’s Child. Another memorable set includes Dr. Dre and Snoop Dog sharing the stage with a hologram of Tupac Shakur in 2012.
As we look to this year’s event, the main headliners include Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, and Ye (formerly known as Kanye West). The entire line-up for this year’s festival has also been released and is packed full of your favorite LGBTQ+ artists.
A big name among the roster is the talented Phoebe Bridgers headlining night one. Since the release of her critically acclaimed second studio album, “Punisher,” in June 2020, Bridgers has gained a huge following and four Grammy nominations.
Both Japanese Breakfast and Norwegian indie singer-songwriter Girl in Red will perform on Saturdays. Hip-hop group BROCKHAMPTON led by openly gay founder Kevin Abstract, revealed their last shows would be at Coachella following the group’s indefinite hiatus.
Masked gay country artist Orville Peck helps close out the show on April 17 and 24. He has garnered success with his latest album Show Pony.
Other LGBTQ+ sets include German singer/songwriter Kim Petras, rapper Princess Nokia American hyper pop duo 100 gecs, pansexual pop star Rina Sawayama and DJ Honey Dijon.
The popular festival returns to the Indio, CA desert after a consecutive two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While there is no news of another cancellation, recent surges in the Omicron Coronavirus variant could hinder passholder’s future plans.
