Eurovision 2021 winners and global rock sensations Måneskin have been announced as one of the acts for this year’s Coachella festival, which will be held over two weekends in April at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. The world-famous music festival, which began in 1999, is returning this year after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.
The group, who have already been confirmed as performers at the Reading & Leeds Festivals 2022, will perform alongside an illustrious line-up of global artists. Headliners for the festival include Harry Styles, Billie Eilish and Kanye West – now known as Ye. Måneskin will perform during the two Sunday line-ups – on 17th April and 24th April.
Ticket pre-sales for week 2 tonight
For anyone interested in attending the festival, the pre-sale for week 2 Coachella tickets begins tonight at 19:00 CET (10:00 PT). There is currently a waiting list for week 1 tickets, as tickets are already soldout. General admissions tickets range from $449 to $549 (excluding fees). You may want to start saving some money if you intend to head to California in a few months time!
On Twitter, Måneskin said they were “thrilled to announce” that they will be performing in the festival in California. They say their performance will “rock that stage twice”!
Måneskin have had the dream year after winning Eurovision back in May with “Zitti e buoni”. In November, they picked up the award for Best Rock Act at the MTV EMAs and they have also been nominated for two awards at the 2022 Brit Awards. The Italian rock group has also performed on shows including The Tonight Show, The Voice USA and Global Citizen Live. They also announced their European tour “LOUD KIDS ON TOUR ’22” in the autumn, which will kick off in London in February.
