Ye, Billie Eilish, Harry Styles Headlining Coachella 2022

It’s finally time to go back to the desert. Goldenvoice announced Coachella will return for 2022, debuting its full lineup for April 15–17 and 22–24. Billie Eilish, Harry Styles, and Ye (whom you may know as Kanye West) are set to headline the festival, which is back for the first time since 2019. Until recently, Rage Against the Machine and Travis Scott were expected to headline, having been set to top the bill of the 2020 festival, which was canceled because of COVID-19, alongside Frank Ocean, who’s now scheduled to return in 2023. Scott was reportedly nixed from the lineup in the wake of his November Astroworld performance, at which a crowd crush left ten dead and numerous injured. Coachella would have marked his first performance since the event, which has given way to hundreds of millions of dollars in legal challenges. Consequence has reported that Rage requested to be taken off the 2022 lineup — and that, up until days before the announcement, the festival had been scrambling for a third headliner. On top of it all, the festival still hasn’t avoided COVID-19 concerns, with the current Omicron variant prompting a slew of postponed and canceled performances.

Julia Fox and Ye Aren’t Doing Labels, Because of Course Not

Ye's True Love Is Hiding in Plain Sight

In the sphere of popular culture, 2022 opened with a question: Who does Ye, the artist previously known as Kanye West, love? Does he love Kim Kardashian, his estranged wife, whose neighboring house he recently acquired, and whom he serenaded at a recent concert with Drake? Does he love Julia Fox, the beautiful downtown persona whom he’s taken to Carbone (twice) and who then detailed their dinner-and-a-show date with her very own work of theatre in a story on

At one point in development, Kano Computing’s new music creation device was going to have finger holes. “‘God created man; man is God’s greatest technology,’” explained Ye, the artist formerly known as Kanye West, as Kano CEO and co-founder Alex Klein remembers it. “So when we make technology, maybe it needs to be formed in our image.”

Ye receives Grammy nomination for innovative hip-hop album ‘Donda’

With a swirl of musical synergy and spirituality, “Donda” is a perfect storm. The release of Ye’s 10th number one album in August sent hip-hop into hysteria. Though “Donda” is nominated for Album Of The Year in the 2022 Grammy Awards, it is far from sounding like classic synthesizer-heavy, ’80s-inspired Ye, who changed his name in October from Kanye West. One of the biggest contributors to this distinction is the album’s choice of samples, said Daniel Seeff, the West Coast director of UCLA’s Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz, who is nominated for his co-creation of a sample used in the track “Hurricane.”
