The 20-year-old music festival, one of the largest in the world, was canceled in 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic. Organizers had previously worked to bring it back in October 2021, according to media reports, but that plan was scrapped.
Performers for 2022 were not announced. The acts that were supposed to headline the 2020 lineup included Frank Ocean, Rage Against the Machine and Travis Scott.
Stagecoach, a country music festival also held in Indio, will follow Coachella from April 29 to May 1.
Live performances were canceled around the world amid the spread of COVID-19. They are starting to return in the United States and other countries where vaccinations have increased and cases of the disease are on the decline.
