Rewinding A Bit…

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival 2022, took place over two weekends: April 15-17 and 22-24 at Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. It was one of the festival’s successful editions to date, with huge names like Swedish House Mafia, The Weeknd, Harry Styles, and Billie Ellish, all headlining with their mesmerising performances. 

However, Kanye West was supposed to headlines but went through a last-minute cancellation amid the social media battle with his ex-wife Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson. About West’s last-minute cancellation, Tollett said he believed it was “a good decision for him”.

He added, “When all these headliners changed, it was hard, I won’t lie. But it’s also just part of what you do. Don’t get upset. Just make a change, you know?” However, the decision was met with a lot of criticism by Ye’s fans who called it “unethical” and “unjust”. 

Coachella 2022 took place after a two-year-long hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic but those who attended know, that the wait was worth it. A reported 750,000 people attended this magnificent festival.

Coachella Festival’s origins trace back to a 1993 concert that Pearl Jam performed at the Polo Club while boycotting venues controlled by Ticketmaster. This validated the site’s capacity to host many people and led to the inaugural Coachella Festival being held over two days in October 1999, three months after Woodstock ’99.

Coachella is one of the most popular and profitable music festivals in the United States and the world as it aims to bring together established and emerging music artists. People who have already attended the festival can feel me right now. I am going, but I hope to see you there!
