This year marks the third year with a strange fourth title slot at the bottom of the festival poster, which gives the artist main billing – via the all-important font size hierarchy – but with no specific date; The top three headliners headline the bills on each of the festival's three days. Its meaning was never entirely clear: at first it seemed like the bill was either a late-night dance slot or some sort of major insurance in case one of the headliners pulled out (which is what Swedish House Mafia ended up doing in 2022). , who took over the Sunday night slots with The Weeknd when Kanye West canceled just days before the festival).

“Rage Against the Machine” was scheduled to headline the 2020 Coachella festival, which was announced in January of that year and ultimately postponed four times due to the pandemic. While the group relaunched their second reunion tour in 2022 and played 19 shows, singer Zach De La Rocha suffered a serious knee injury and dates have been postponed indefinitely but it appears any future plans are off the table: drummer Brad Wilk posted on 3 January announced that the group “will never tour or play live again.”

Last year's headliners were Bad Bunny and Blackpink, and on the first weekend, 2020's headliner was Frank Ocean. While the elusive singer had planned an ice rink, complete with dozens of skaters, for his performance, it was dismantled at the last minute and he ended up playing a loose, low-key set that started late and disappointed many fans. He canceled his appearance during the second weekend and was replaced by Blink-182.

This was the second year in a row that the headliners were switched at the last minute: 2022's headliners were Harry Styles, Billie Eilish and a tag team combination of The Weeknd and swish House Mafia, with the latter performance replaced by that of Kanye West, who pulled out. Just days before the first weekend of the festival.
