After weeks of speculation– based on literal years of delays – Coachella Music Festival has finally announced its schedule for its 2022 iteration. It includes its often mixed deck of headliners, where the Party tonight revealed that this year’s trio of big winners are, yes: Harry Styles, Billie Eilish and * big, elaborate, annoyed sigh * Ye, the current artist name of rap superstar / problematic former favorite Kanye West.

Styles – who will be in charge of the festival’s Friday night on 15 and 22 April – are the mild surprise here, as they have apparently escaped the rumor mill that has been circulating around The festival ever since it dropped former headliner Travis Scott in the wake of the Astroworld Festival deaths last year. Styles has not released new music since 2019 Fine line, but he’s apparently still got that fan-disturbing name recognition that festival organizers like. He will front a bill that includes Phoebe Bridgers, Lil Baby, Big Sean, Daniel Caesar and the usual list of acts beforesent in still small fonts.

Eilish, meanwhile, will head the Saturdays of April 16 and 23, as previously rumored. The singer just won a Golden Globe for her Bond song “No Time To Die”, and is on top of last year Happier than ever. She will oversee a night that will bring Flume, Danny Elfman, 21 Savage, Disclosure, Megan Thee Stallion and more out to the Indio, CA desert.

Finally, it’s Sunday, April 17 and 24, which indeed will be presided over by Ye– with organizers probably hoping to take advantage of some of it Sunday school energy from back in 2019. (Iignores the fact that it was, as a dozen bad Kanye press cycles since.) But hey: Even if you show up early, you’ll still get to see Doja Cat, Joji, Jamie xx, Run The Jewels, Karol G and more fill the bill, right?
