Coachella 2022: Swedish House Mafia and The Weeknd replace Kanye West

Swedish House Mafia and The Weeknd will step in to take Kanye West’s place at the upcoming Coachella festival.

The rapper pulled out of his graduation night slot 11 days before the two-week event, which takes place April 15-17 and April 22-24 in California.

The dance music supergroup and “Blinding Lights” singer will perform in West’s Sunday night slot, along with Harry Styles and Billie Eilish to headline the festival.

“I’m really looking forward to this moment when Swedish House Mafia and The Weeknd wrap up the Sunday night slot this year,” said Paul Tollett, President and CEO of Coachella.

“Coachella has a special relationship with Abel [The Weeknd] and I’m so grateful to have this upcoming performance with these iconic artists all on the same stage,” he added.

The Weeknd’s return to the desert festival marks his second time headlining Coachella – first in 2018 – and his third appearance since his debut in 2012.

In early January, when the 2022 festival poster was first released, Swedish House Mafia was headliner-sized at the bottom, but no date was given.

Coachella will be held April 15-17 and April 22-24 in Indio, California.
