Load up the Tesla, grab some sunblock, and pop a CBD gummy because Coachella is back, baby. While the festival returned last year, only to cause a spike in COVID cases and give Kanye another excuse to disappoint his fans, it’s feeling more confident than ever this year. Bad Bunny, Gorillaz, Björk, and even DJ Idris Elba will provide entertainment for thousands of eager influencers looking to record bad concert footage on their phones as they rock out to the soothing sounds of Blackpink and Charli XCX. The festival occurs across two weekends: April 14–16 and 21–23, at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.

After a two-year hiatus, the festival returned last year, with Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, and The Weeknd headlining. That’s not to say it wasn’t a mess. Kanye West dropped out less than two weeks before the festival, forcing organizers to scramble and book The Weeknd. Per Pitchfork, the Los Angeles production and design firm Phantom Labs sued Ye for $7.1 million over his canceled performance, which has got hurt the rapper, who cratered his fortune by being openly bigoted toward Jewish people.

The festival’s return also caused a spike in Omicron infections due to the nonexistent mask and vaccination requirements. NBC reported at the time:

Riverside County’s average daily Covid cases jumped from 102 on April 14, the day before the festival started, to 180 cases on Thursday, four days after it ended. But that figure is likely an undercount, disease experts said, because of the common use of at-home tests.

As restrictions have further relaxed due to the U.S. deciding that the economy is worth killing 390 people a day, it’s probably best to get updated boosters and wear a mask at the festival, especially when trading crypto tips in some Elon fanboy’s hotel room. Be safe out there, concertgoers.
