The 2022 Coachella lineup has been officially announced and it seems Travis Scott has been left out of this year’s show after the Astroworld Festival tragedy has called the artist’s behavior at concerts into question.
On Wednesday, the annual music festival revealed the dozens of headliners and performers who will be in attendance at the 2022 show with Ye, Billie Eilish and Harry Styles headlining six different nights spread across two weekends.
Completely absent from the list of performers is embattled rapper Scott, who Variety reports was originally on the bill but dropped in the wake of the Houston, Tx. concert event that left ten people dead and hundreds more injured. The outlet reported in December that Scott’s representatives were told he would no longer be headlining the festival and agreed to pay a “kill fee” for the cancellation, which is estimated to be 25% of his total. However, that has not been confirmed by organizers.
Scott was reportedly hoping to make Coachella his grand return to the stage following the Astroworld Festival tragedy.

Neither representatives for Scott nor Coachella immediately responded to Fox News’ request for comment.
When Scott took the stage to close out the 2021 Astroworld Music Festival, the crowd was already densely packed with fans looking to get a glimpse of the headlining performer. Many of them sneaked into the venue throughout the day. Authorities have said 50,000 people attended the event in Houston, Texas. Over 300 people were treated at an on-site field hospital at NRG Park, and at least 13 were later hospitalized after the crowd reportedly surged forward.
Scott has faced criticism for not stopping the show, but has claimed multiple times that he was unaware of how dire the situation was in the crowd from his vantage point on the stage and only learned of how bad things got after his set had already concluded.

Regardless of the fallout from the Astroworld Festival, the 2022 Coachella is expected to take place at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif. for two weekends set for April 15 – 17 and April 22 – 24, 2022.
