Kanye West set to headline Coachella - reports

American rapper Kanye West has reportedly been booked to headline the Sunday night at Coachella 2022.

Sources close to Kanye, or Ye as he's now known as, have told Variety that the 'Stronger' rapper will take to the stage at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California in April. It's the first time the event has been held since 2019 due to covid restrictions. Billboard has also reported that he might also stage a second Sunday Service performance on that day.

Comeback EDM giants Swedish House Mafia have signed up to perform, but it's unclear if they will headline, reports Variety. Billie Eilish will also reportedly headline the Friday or Saturday night of the popular festival.

Festival organisers have found themselves with a bit of a headache recently with multiple booking changes. The acts that were due to headline 2020's festival - Travis Scott, Frank Ocean, and Rage Against the Machine - are no longer on the bill for 2022.

Coachella, which takes place over two weekends, is taking place from 15-17 April and 22-24 April. You can get more info on the festival here.
