LOS ANGELES — Harry Styles has been booked for this year's Coachella festival, joining a lineup that includes headliners Kanye West and Billie Eilish, as well as EDM group Swedish House Mafia.

According to a source, the British pop star (and former One Direction heartthrob) will headline the 2022 edition of pop music's highest-profile festival, which is scheduled to go down April 15-17 and April 22-24 at the Empire Polo grounds in Indio.

The news was first reported in Billboard.

The show will mark the first time Coachella has taken place in three years, after the 2020 and 2021 editions were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A huge moneymaker for Goldenvoice, the Los Angeles-based promoter that puts it on, Coachella in 2020 was supposed to feature Frank Ocean, Travis Scott and a reunited Rage Against the Machine.

 

Last August, Goldenvoice chief Paul Tollett told the Los Angeles Times that Ocean would headline the show in 2023. Scott reportedly dropped off the lineup after 10 attendees of his Astroworld festival died in Houston in November; Rage is said to have pulled out as well.

A Goldenvoice representative didn't respond immediately to a request for comment on Styles' booking.
