Billie Eilish is returning to the desert with a headlining gig at the famous Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in 2022. 

The 20-year-old singer will reportedly take the stage on one night just three years after her Coachella debut which was featured on her The World's a Little Blurry Apple TV+ documentary.

Billie will be joining electronic music legends Swedish House Mafia on the roster of headliners, but it's still unclear who the third major act will be after Travis Scott was given the boot from the lineup following the deadly Astroworld festival in Houston where 10 people were killed. 

TMZ confirmed Billie Eilish's booking with sources saying she "signed on as one of the event's big names for 2022."

The last two festivals were canceled due to COVID-19, and Coachella 2022 is set for back-to-back weekends beginning April 15. Coachella 2020 had Frank Ocean, Travis Scott, and Rage Against the Machine set for headliners before it was canceled due to the coronavirus.
