Now R&B artist Frank Ocean will take the lead act. Paul Tollett, CEO of AEG subsidiary Goldenvoice, sat down with the Los Angeles Times to announce the exciting news.
Tollett admitted to the publication that while in previous years he’d never disclose the names of performers in advance, this year is a little more unique. With the uncertainty surrounding Covid-19, Tollett thinks the fans deserve a little reassurance. Morevover, the Coachella Music Festival has been cancelled two years in a row due solely to the pandemic.
Originally, Ocean was scheduled to headline for Coachella 2020 and again in 2022. Currently, Rage Against the Machine and Travis Scott will be the opening act for the music festival in April 2022. Despite the fact that Frank Ocean won’t be present, fans can look forward to his appearance in 2023.
