The huge Spring festival won’t ever make it known publicly, but they have an A+ list backup ready to go for one or both weekends and have already paid them to make themselves available.
The festival’s promoters know it is 50/50 that one of their headliners might be in some type of rehab or mental healthy facility when the Spring rolls around.
Kanye West, Billie Eilish to Headline Coachella; Swedish House Mafia in the Mix
Billie Eilish and Kanye West are slated to headline the 2022 Coachella festival, sources tell Variety, on Saturday and Sunday night, respectively. Swedish House Mafia is also on the bill, although it is unclear whether the group is the festival’s third headliner — the traditional “throwback” slot for the reunion of a more veteran artist.
West headlined the festival in 2011 and Eilish had a breakthrough performance in 2019 (she would be the youngest artist to top the Coachella bill); SHM previously performed at Coachella in 2012.
The festival, which is already sold out, is scheduled to take place over the weekends of April 15-17 and April 22-24, 2022, at its usual location of the Empire Polo Ground in Indio, Calif. However, the alarming omicron surge and the postponement of the Grammy Awards this week have many wondering whether the festival will take place in April, or be moved — for a fifth time — to a later date. – Source
