Best music festival 2022: programming, concerts, tours this year


If the music festivals of 2022 prove anything, it’s that festival season is back and better than ever. Lollapalooza, Bottlerock, The Governors Ball, and other massive music festivals have returned this year, and festival season isn’t over yet.

The return of music festivals came after Coachella was canceled in 2020 and 2021. The two-weekend music festival, held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif., in the Coachella Valley in the Colorado Desert, was scheduled for the second and third weekends of April 2020 with Rage Against the Machine headlining Travis Scott and Frank Ocean. However, the festival was unexpectedly canceled and postponed to the second and third weekends of October 2020 due to the current health crisis. The event, which has been around for over 20 years, was once again scheduled for April 2021 before being canceled. After a two-year hiatus, Coachella made a comeback in April 2022.

While we wait for next year’s string of music festivals, there are still tons of music events to attend in 2022. Read on for the best music festivals of 2022 to put on your calendars.
