MUSIC – After two years of cancellation, the Coachella festival, in the Californian desert in the United States, will (if the coronavirus pandemic allows it) return to spring 2022. The list of artists present during these three days of concerts was unveiled this Thursday, January 13 by the organizers.
And this year the headliners are Billie Eilish, Harry Styles and Kanye West, who now calls himself Ye. Among the dozen artists who will accompany them on the stages of the festival, we find Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat or Flume. And for its return, Coachella has invited three French-speaking artists: Stromae, Mika and L’impératrice.
Stromae has just made a resounding return to France by unveiling its new title this Sunday, January 9, Hell, on the TF1 news set. If the current health measures are still in effect in April, festival-goers will have to provide proof of full vaccination or a negative test within 72 hours.
Coachella, which traditionally kicks off the music festival season, has not been able to take place since 2019. The 2020 edition, after being postponed until the fall, finally had to be canceled, as did that of 2021, due to the pandemic.
The 2022 edition is scheduled for April 15 to 17, then April 22 to 24, and the organizers hope to be able to run it at full capacity, welcoming 125,000 festival-goers each day.
