Travis Scott's Astroworld festival saw 10 people getting killed in a crowd surge in the first week of November and therefore, keeping in mind the same, the ‘Highest in the Room’ hitmaker was dropped from Coachella in December 2021. It is now being rumored that Grammy-winning crooner Billie Eilish and the supergroup Swedish House Mafia might replace Travis Scott as the potential headliners.

Who is replacing Travis Scott at Coachella?

As music lovers are gearing up for one of the biggest music festivals on the planet, it is being reported that Billie Eilish might come in to replace Travis Scott, as reported by TMZ. The publication also reported that the Swedish House Mafia, who announced their return to music a couple of months ago, will be the second act to follow. However, an official confirmation from the music festival organizers is still awaited. For the unversed, Coachella is all set to take place on April 15-17 and April 22-24.
Travis Scott, Frank Ocean, and Rage Against the Machine were supposed to headline the 2019 edition of Coachella but the mega event got canceled due to the unfortunate Covid-19 pandemic. Frank Ocean will reportedly hit the stage in 2023 whereas, Rage Against the Machine will not be showing up for this year’s edition. Speaking of Travis Scott, the multi-platinum rapper has not commented anything on him getting replaced. The 30-year-old rapper has been brutally dragged on the Internet ever since the unfortunate mishap took place at his concert at NRG Park in Houston, Texas, in November 2021. Travis Scott had earlier said that he was devastated and was willing to work together with the community to heal and support the families in need. Travis also got axed from his Dior collaboration in the wake of his concert tragedy. 


‘Please replace Billie Eilish… give us Rihanna, Shakira’

Music lovers thronged to Twitter as soon as they got to know Billie Eilish might replace Travis as the potential headliner for this year’s Coachella. “Travis Scott must be held accountable for the deaths of 10 people at his reckless concert”, said one furious user as another chimed in, “They don't realize that many people were probably going to Coachella to only see Travis perform. But damn, that's a weird replacement”, referring to reports of Billie Eilish coming in as the potential headliner.
The next one posted, “Please replace Billie Eilish… give us Rihanna, Shakira, Doja Cat, Nicki Minaj, Kylie Minogue, there’s so many better artists worthy of that headlining slot. ain’t nobody tryina sleep to that.” One individual added, “Doja and Megan were already going to be regular acts for the 2020 year, so it’d be nice to see either or both of them as headliners.” Another shared, “This years coachella is gonna be an L”, as one stated, “Oh god the audience will be falling asleep.” Meanwhile, one tweeted, “Coachella is replacing Travis Scott despite the profits he could rake in. Another reminder that our @GOP politicians can't do what's right- but a music festival did when faced with an unhinged narcissist who finds pleasure in watching others lay down their lives to prove loyalty.” And, another concluded, “What a f**king s**tshow. And, furthermore we are never going to get out of this pandemic.”
