Coachella has finally returned. For all the music festival lovers out there, we’ve put together a full guide on how to live stream Coachella 2022 — with some of the biggest and most exciting names in music taking the Coachella stage, you do not want to miss a set.
For the past two years, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has been cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Now, as COVID health restrictions and mandates begin to lift across the United States, the iconic music festival is making a comeback.
As listed under the “Health & Safety Rules” section of the official Coachella website, “in accordance with local guidelines, there will be no vaccination, testing, or masking requirements” at this year’s festival. Coachella will be held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. As of April 1, 2022, the California Department of Public Health declared that vaccine verification and proof of negative test would no longer be required for indoor and outdoor “mega events,” and be moved to a status of “strong recommendation.”
Still, Coachella will offer rapid COVID-19 antigen testing on-site at the festival, and recommends face coverings “to protect against desert dust.”
With an expected attendance of well over 100,000, festival-goers will flock to the California desert across two consecutive weekends, April 15-17 and April 22-24, to see over 150 performances across Coachella’s seven stages. Headlining this year’s festival are Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, and Swedish House Mafia & The Weeknd.
Swedish House Mafia and The Weeknd were added as headliners to the lineup on April 6, after rapper Ye (formerly known as Kanye West), pulled out of the event on April 4.
Coachella 2022 officially kicks off on Friday, April 15. Below, learn more info about this year’s festival, and find out how to live stream Coachella 2022.
