This year, the Coachella Valley Music and arts Festival is being held the two consecutive weekends of April 15-17 and 22-24. This is Coachella’s comeback after being canceled the last two years due to COVID-19. The first weekend was full of incredible music, food and fun, and the second weekend undoubtedly kept up the same energy.

The main headliners for Coachella 2022 included Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, The Weekend and Swedish House Mafia. Some other well-known artists who made an appearance are Lil Baby, Phoebe Bridgers, Baby Keem, Giveon, 21 Savage, Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, Joji and many others.

Coachella is held in a large field in Indo, Calif. There are two main stages and several other smaller stages located in tents scattered throughout the field.

Besides the incredible music, Coachella is also widely known for the unique fashion trends that attendants show up in. Typically, music festivals are ground to fun and crazy outfits, but Coachella takes the cake for being the eccentric. Attendants wear everything from desert chic to front cover of Vogue-inspired outfits. The no dress code policy means no limits to expression of not only attendants, but performers as well.

The entire festival was streamed live on YouTube. Every moment was captured from the first set on April 15 until the last set on the April 24. Cameras were all around the event site and successfully captured every angle possible to make the streaming experience as authentic as possible.
