Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, Kanye West headline Coachella festival

(AFP) – After the cancellation of its last two editions due to the pandemic, the famous music festival Coachella plans to return in April, with Harry Styles, Billie Eilish and Kanye West as headliners.

Among the dozens of artists invited to the Californian desert are also Phoebe Bridgers, Megan Thee Stallion, Stromae, Rich Brian, Doja Cat and Karol G.

Coachella, which traditionally kicks off the music festival season, has not been able to take place since 2019. The 2020 edition, after being postponed until the fall, finally had to be canceled, as did that of 2021, due to the pandemic.

The 2022 edition is scheduled for April 15 to 17, then April 22 to 24, and the organizers hope to be able to run it at full capacity, welcoming 125,000 festival-goers each day.

If the current health measures are still in effect in April, festival-goers will have to provide proof of full vaccination or a negative test within 72 hours.

Another famous festival, Bonnaroo, scheduled for June 16-19 in Tennessee, also announced its lineup this week, including The Chicks, Tool, 21 Savage, Roddy Ricch and Stevie Nicks.

The festival, originally scheduled for September, had to be canceled after floods ravaged its grounds.
