Billie Eilish may have been the Coachella 2022 headlining act.

According to TMZ, the 20-year-old Grammy-winner will perform at the music festival which will be held on two consecutive weekends beginning April 15.

Reps for Eilish and the festival have not returned The Post’s request for comment.

The “Bad Guy”For the fest, the supergroup Swedish House Mafia will be joined by the singer. The COVID-19 pandemic caused Coachella to be cancelled in 2020-2021.

Frank Ocean, Scott and Rage Against the Machine were the 2020 performers. Ocean will return for the 2023 festival, while Rage Against the Machine will not appear at this year’s iteration.

“With the recent tragedy and unnecessary death at Travis Scott’s Astroworld concert, due to Scott’s own gross negligence and sheer lack of compassion for human life, we ask [festival organizers] AEG, Paul Tollet, and Goldenvoice to remove his [sic] as performer at all of their festivals,”The petition was approved.

Scott was also forced to leave his Dior collaboration following the concert tragedy.

In summer 2022, he was to announce a partnership between Cactus Jack and the French fashion label. The collaboration was postponed indefinitely.

“Out of respect for everyone affected by the tragic events at Astroworld, Dior has decided to postpone indefinitely the launch of products from the Cactus Jack collaboration originally intended to be included in its summer 2022 collection,” the company said in a statement to WWD last month.

Coachella attendees will no longer need to be vaccinated for the coronavirus in order attend the California festival.

Concertgoers can enter with a mere proof of a negative CoVID-19 test, provided it is received within 72 hours.

“After seeing first-hand the low transmission data and successful implementation of safety protocols at our festivals recently … we feel confident that we can safely update our policy for Coachella,” the post read on the show’s website.
