What is Coachella?

Coachella is one of the world’s longest-running music festivals since the inaugural one in 1999. People flock from all over to camp out all weekend and enjoy the diverse lineup. It’s said that Coachella began to form in 1993 at a Pearl Jam performance at the Empire Polo Club that boycotted venues controlled by Ticketmaster. Eddie Vedder had recently started speaking out against high fees attached to tickets and sent his grunge band to perform out in the desert. And so the desert venue was born.

When is Coachella 2022?

The festival will be held over two three-day weekends in April. Weekend One will be held April 15th through April 17th, and Weekend Two will be held April 22nd through April 24th.

Where Does Coachella Take Place?

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is held in Indio, California in the Coachella Valley. The festival takes place on the Empire Polo Club grounds (yup, same spot where that Pearl Jam show was back in the day).

How Many People Attend Coachella?

250,000 people attended Coachella in 2017 after years of having a 99,000 attendance cap.

What is the Coachella 2022 Lineup?

This year’s Coachella lineup is insane and full of great music. Unfortunately, legendary rapper Kanye West was supposed to headline but recently dropped out. The Sunday headliner is now The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia. But other headliners include one of the world’s biggest singer-songwriters, Billie Eilish, and pop superstar Harry Styles.
