The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia Replacing Kanye West as Coachella 2022 Headliners

    Two days ago, it was reported that Kanye West would no longer be performing at Coachella 2022. Now, the Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia have been announced as the Sunday night headliners of the festival. Check out the new Coachella poster below.

    “I’m so looking forward to this moment with Swedish House Mafia and the Weeknd finishing out the Sunday night slot this year,” Paul Tollett, president/CEO of Coachella promoter Goldenvoice, told Variety. “Coachella has a special relationship with Abel [Tesfaye aka the Weeknd] and I’m so thankful to have this upcoming performance with these iconic artists all on the same stage.”

    The Weeknd headlined Coachella back in 2018. Swedish House Mafia teamed up with the singer last year for the single ‘Moth to a Flame’, and later remixed his Dawn FM track ‘Sacrifice’. The group’s debut album, Paradise Again, comes out on April 15.
