Coachella 2022 ends with a bang!

After two years of being on hiatus due to the pandemic, the Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia headed for the final day of the Coachella Music & Arts Festival 2022.

They played the same song line-up from last weekend, but the difference is the crowd this weekend is wilder and more energetic. They jumped, shouted, laughed, and sang along with the performers.

They were joined by Swedish House Mafia, who performed their most famous song, “Don’t You Worry Child,” where the crowd sang in unison. An extraordinary moment indeed.


Coachella is the music festival that everyone looks forward to every year, so it must have been exhilarating for fans to be able to attend it again after nearly two years. Hopefully, we can look forward to Coachella again in the succeeding years, with more performers and outstanding performances.
