Coachella announces dates for 2022 festival

"Our desert homecoming is officially set for April"

Coachella has announced dates for its 2022 festivals, with the beloved event set to run across the weekends of 15th - 17th and 22nd - 24th April next year, at Empire Polo Ground, Indio, California. 

Variety broke the news yesterday following an announcement by promoter Goldenvoice. This is now the fourth time the event has been rescheduled as a result of COVID-19.

"Our desert homecoming is officially set for April 2022," the Goldenvoice statement reads. "Our advance sale begins this Friday, June 4th at 10AM PT. More time to plan and more time to pay for your passes over time with our flexible payment plan options." 

Coachella usually confirms its line-up closer to the time, long after each weekend's 125,000 tickets have sold out. As such, headliners and other acts for 2022 are expected to be revealed in the new year.

Calvin Harris, Run the Jewels, Thom Yorke, Disclosure and FKA Twigs were all due to play in 2020. Although eventually cancelled due to coronavirus, the bill was criticised for the low number of female headliners. Last year, a new GV Black team was introduced to the organisation, to "expand representation of the Black community". In March 2020, the festival's 20th anniversary documentary, 'Coachella: 20 Years in the Desert', premiered on YouTube, and the video streaming giant has now been confirmed as an official partner for the next instalments.
