In the name of Yeezus!
Kanye West will headline Coachella 2019 after all. The “Touch The Sky” rapper revealed that he would bring a gospel-themed performance to the popular California festival on Easter Sunday morning.
“We were out in Palm Springs and they took us to a little campground, because we were thinking about a little performance in Palm Springs, just a little one,” the 21-time Grammy Award winner told his Sunday Service observers, according to a video. “Then they had a mountain, he had a mountain waiting for us.”
Coachella confirmed the news in a tweet that West’s Sunday Service was coming to the Indio, California festival during its second weekend on April 21, which is on Easter Sunday at 9 a.m.
West reportedly dropped out of headlining the festival at the last minute due to festival organizers’ alleged refusal to build him a custom-made dome onsite. Ariana Grande was then booked as a headliner. Other performers include Janelle Monae, Solange and Khalid.
Yeezy has recently been hosting musicians for a weekly Sunday Service at his home in Calabasas, California. Now, festivalgoers will have a chance to enjoy the experience.
Coachella will take place over two weekends: April 12–14 and April 19–21.
