After two years of NOTHING, Coachella finally returned over the weekend in Indio, California. Many celebrities and influencers attended the music festival. Over the years, the festival has gained popularity for its dress code which are “Instagram-worthy.”

Headliner Billie Eilish stole the show with her performance on Saturday, April 16, following fellow headliner Harry Styles who brought out country queen, Shania Twain.

Also along for the ride: the festival’s usual run of surprise cameo, including Justin Bieber, Rico Nasty, and Gorillaz; new music from the likes of Carly Rae Jepsen, and Megan Thee Stallion.

The lineup of artists over the weekend included Doja Cat, Swedish House Mafia, The Weekend, BROCKHAMPTON, Anitta, Maneskin, Olivia O’Brien, Lil Baby, FINNEAS, and some many more big names.

An upside to Ye (formerly known as Kanye West) dropping out of Coachella: No longer were we under the threat of a “surprise” Travis Scott appearance, as the rapper previously hinted at. But Scott was still a presence during Coachella weekend, performing a DJ set at a nearby after-party Sunday night. This was one of Scott’s first public performances since the crowd-crush tragedy at Astroworld.

Ticket prices = 3-Day GA (Tier 1) passes start at $449, 3-Day GA (Tier 2) passes are at $474, and 3-Day GA (Tier 3) Passes are at $499. VIP passes start at $929 (Tier 1), $999 (Tier 2), and $1049 (Tier 3), respectively.

Even though this weekend was full of fashion statements and great music, Coachella 2022 will be back with a second artist lineup for this coming up weekend.
