The premier music festivals of Southern California, Coachella and Stagecoach, will at long last return in spring of 2022.

Promoter Goldenvoice announced dates for the much-anticipated return of shows to the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, Calif., after what will be two years of COVID-19-related closures and postponements. Coachella will take place on successive weekends, April 15-17 and April 22-24; the country music festival Stagecoach will return April 29-May 1.

Coachella passes went on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at the festival’s website. Festival hopefuls have to register and wait in a digital line, where they’ll have ten minutes to purchase tickets with a one-off code. Tickets range from $499 to $5,366, depending on VIP tiers and accommodations.


Tickets purchased prior to the pandemic will be honored for 2022.

The 2021 edition of Coachella had been planned for April 9-11 and April 16-18, but it was cancelled following public health orders from Riverside County. Headliners were to include Frank Ocean, Rage Against the Machine and Travis Scott.

Coachella and Stagecoach may not be returning until 2022, but from Rolling Loud to BottleRock to Desert Daze, the 2021 festival season is in full swing.

Goldenvoice did not announce 2022 lineups for Coachella or Stagecoach, though other nearby events such as Hard Summer (Aug. 31-July 1; Future, DJ Snake), BottleRock Napa Valley (Sept. 3-5; Guns N’ Roses, Stevie Nicks, Foo Fighters) and Las Vegas’ Life Is Beautiful (Sept. 17-19; Green Day, Billie Eilish, Tame Impala) have full slates of acts scheduled.

Other major outdoor local venues like the Hollywood Bowl and the Greek Theatre have announced rescheduled and newly booked shows for the summer and fall of 2021. The state’s June 15 reopening will remove most restrictions on outdoor events, but indoor venues and nightclubs still will have some regulations on crowds and protocols.
