>> Travis Scott no longer headlining Coachella
Coachella, which is North America’s largest music festival, has already sold all of its 125,000 per-day ticket allotment, the website reported. Due to the recent surge in omicron, the COVID-19 variant, it is unclear whether the festival might have to shift dates or be canceled, the website reported.
Styles recently completed the biggest North American tour by any major artist since the pandemic began in early 2020, according to Variety.
The original headliners for this year, announced in January 2020, were Travis Scott, Frank Ocean and Rage Against the Machine, according to Variety. However, Scott was removed from the bill after the Astroworld music festival incident in Houston, where eight people were killed when crowds surged toward the stage; and Ocean moved his appearance to 2023, the website reported.
