According to industry tipsheet from HITS Daily Double, which has notoriously gotten the lineup correct in the past, reports that two of the three headliners will be Lana Del Rey and Tyler, The Creator. Doja Cat is currently in negotiations for the third spot according to this report but it remains unconfirmed.
The site also claims that Shakira’s team has been pushing for the artist to serve as a headliner, but the festival passed. Coachella organizers were reportedly hoping to book Dua Lipa, but she ‘deumurred due to timing.’
Peso Pluma has been on the lineup for the festival according to this report, but many believe he will not be at the headlining level.
Other contendors in the lineup include, Olivia Rodrigo, The Rolling Stones, and Travis Scott. Rage Against the Machine was slated to headline the 2020 event in the past, but the band will not be playing this year’s lineup as drummer Brad Wilk claims the band will never play live again.
As of now, Lana Del Rey and Tyler, The Creator have been fan demanded artists to headline the festival. As of late, the festival has come under fire for mainly booking pop artists to headline the festivities. Many have argued that both artists have cult followings making them a different style to headline.
Both artists are based in California and have played at the festival in the past. Back in 2014, Lana played at the event and was slated for the top support slot in 2020.
Tyler has played Coachella in both 2015 and 2018.
As far as Doja Cat, the singer has been a toss up if she indeed would be headlining as she recently performed at the 2022 festival.
Lately, Lana has been teasing Coachella rumors. Just a few days ago, the singer posted a photo from the 2014 set, along with the audio of her song “Coachella – Woodstock in My Mind.”
