After a two-festival hiatus, Coachella 2022 has made its triumphant return. The Indio music festival typically marks one of the earliest live music weekends across the country (and maybe we’re a bit biased, but we’d say its lineup outclasses nearly every other music festival, too). The 2022 edition is here with plenty of bands to see and amazing things to eat and drink between sets (spoiler: food from some of the best restaurants in Los Angeles). Here’s what you need to know.
What is Coachella?
The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is an annual music festival held over two weekends in Indio, just east of Palm Springs.
When is Coachella?
The festival is held over two weekends, April 15–17 and April 22–24, 2022.
When do Coachella tickets go on sale?
Tickets for the both weekend of this year’s long-awaited Coachella are already very much sold out, as 2020 tickets are being honored alongside a remaining batch that went on sale in 2021. There was another presale in January, but at this point—aside from third party ticket markets—you’ll have to try your luck with the waitlist for weekend one and weekend two.
How much are Coachella tickets?
We hope you’ve been saving up over the past two-to-three years (all of the following prices are before fees): The only remaining general admission passes cost $549. Shuttle combo tickets cost $633. For VIP, it’ll cost you $1,119. Check out the Coachella website for wide range of camping rates.
What will the Coachella lineup be like?
Harry Styles, Billie Eilish and Swedish House Mafia and the Weeknd (who has replaced Ye) top this year’s lineup, with additional sets from Lil Baby, Phoebe Bridgers, Flume, Megan Thee Stallion, Disclosure, 21 Savage, Danny Elfman, Doja Cat, Joji, Jamie xx and Run the Jewels, among others.
Can I livestream Coachella?
You sure can. YouTube has three channels that’ll be showing nearly 90 sets nearly live from the fest, including the headliners each night.
