Rage Against The Machine will be headlining the 2022 installment of Coachella.

This news was confirmed by the festival’s co-founder Paul Tollett in an interview with the Los Angeles Times. Rage was originally set as one of the headliners in 2020. Joining Rage as headliners in 2022 will be Travis Scott, while Frank Ocean has been announced as one of the headliners in 2023. Both Scott and Ocean were supposed to headline in 2020 with RATM.

Tollett said, “Right now, it’s the Wild West. I’m just trying to be as fair as I can to artists and to the fans to make sure that eventually they get to see everyone that we talked about [headlining in 2020.]”

Despite Lollapalooza taking place this year, Coachella opted to postpone their 2021 largely due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. On that decision, Tollett said, “I don’t want to force it too soon. I’d rather wait. You’ll never remember that you had to wait, but you’ll remember if you went to a really bad event.”
