Rumours that West, Eilish and Styles were set to headline this year’s Coachella emerge earlier this month. Travis Scott was previously set to top the bill but was allegedly removed following the crowd crush tragedy at his Astroworld event last year.
The reunited Rage Against the Machine, who were set to perform at the 2020 edition of the festival, do not appear on the bill for this year’s event.
The headline set will mark Styles’ debut Coachella performance, while Eilish is the youngest-ever headliner at Coachella, following a huge breakout performance at the festival back in 2019.
