Black Coffee (South Africa), Sampa the Great (Zambia/Australia), AMÉMÉ (Benin/US) and Dave (UK/Ghana) have been confirmed for this year’s Coachella Festival.
Coachella announced the full lineup for this year’s festival, which will see Kanye West (YE), Lil Baby, 21 Savage, Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, Big Sean, Baby Keem, Run the Jewels, Disclosure, Snoh Aalegra, Vince Staples, Isaiah Rashad, Brockhampton, Ari Lennox, Freddie Gibbs & Madlib, Phoebe Bridgers, and many more hit the stage.
The Indio, California festival announced its dates back in June 2021, revealing that the 2022 iteration will take place on the weekends of April 15-17 and April 22-24, 2022.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, Coachella has been postponed four times. The original headliners of the 21st annual installment of the festival were Travis Scott, Frank Ocean and Rage Against the Machine, which was originally scheduled for 2020. Last year, Ocean decided to move his appearance to 2023, and due to the recent Astroworld tragedy that happened in Houston back in November, Scott was removed from being the headliner.
According to its website, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has been taking place annually at the 78-acre Empire Polo Club and is one of the “most critically acclaimed music festivals in the world.” Coachella features some of the most groundbreaking musicians and singers from all genres of music as well as displaying a “substantial selection of art installations from all over the world.”
