    Who are the 2022 festival headliners going to be?

    Since we now have confirmation of both weekend dates for the 2022 festival from Goldenvoice, we can start figuring out the headlining acts that are going to be there. The original group for the canceled 2020 festival was supposed to be Rage Against The Machine, Travis Scott, and Frank Ocean. Do you think GV and the artists will agree to keep that arrangement intact or will there be a replacement or two?

    Considering that group...first, RATM is pretty much a guaranteed lock based on their released 2022 touring schedule and routing: https://forum.themojavetent.com/foru...page6#post5070. There is a huge obvious gap between their show in Glendale, AZ on Apr. 6 and Oakland, CA on Apr. 26. So that slot is pretty much certain.

    Next, Travis Scott has only announced the 2021 headlining performances at the original Rolling Loud festival in Miami Jul. 24 and his own Astro World festival in Houston Nov. 5-6 so far. He is conspicuously absent from the Rolling Loud California festival in San Bernardino Dec. 10-12. It's hard to read too much into this right now, but I think it kind of points to Travis being retained.

    Finally, the real mystery is Frank Ocean. He has not announced any tour dates or information since the COVID-19 pandemic. He also has a history of backing out of performances. Will he still be on the lineup?

    If GV replaces a headlining slot, will it be with a female artist or perhaps a female-fronted or all-female band? They received quite a bit of criticism for the lack of gender diversity among the headliners when the 2020 lineup was announced. If that happened, would it be a pop megastar, rap/hip-hop act, R&B act, or an indie rock band? We can pretty much rule out Billie Eilish since she is performing Live Nation-produced sold-out shows at The Forum in L.A. on Apr.6, 8, and 9, 2022. Maybe Paul T will shock everyone by booking Fiona Apple as a headliner. After all, she scored the most prestigious 10/10 rating for her Fetch the Bolt Cutters album last year on Pitchfork!

    I think they'll be the same.

    I just hope Danny Elfman is there.

        Travis Scott is now going to be a headliner at Rolling Loud New York on Oct. 30. That still doesn't change things.

            It's still too soon after the robot detonation for the Daft Punk rumors!

            With Travis Scott being announced as a headliner for GV's 2021 Day N Vegas festival, I think that solidifies the likelihood he is retained as one of the 2022 Coachella HLs.
