Kanye West has been picked as one of the headliners of the Coachella Festival in April this year. He would join the likes of Swedish House Mafia and Billie Eilish to push what is unarguably one of the most anticipated festivals in April.
Reports out there indicated that Frank Ocean, Rage The Machine and Travis Scott were initially in the cards to headline the festival, but it didn’t work out, so festival organizers had to pick their replacements.
Whether by coincidence or design, Kanye West will headline the Sunday editions of the festival in April (15-17 and April 22-24). For fans of the “Donda,” it’s like having Sunday services all over again.
For Kanye West, it would be the first time headlining since 2011. Also, it follows his recent announcement that he’s planning a show, as well as his reunion with one-time adversary Drake at the Los Angeles Coliseum for a concert to free Larry Hoover.
The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was founded by Paul Tollett and Rick Van Santen. It holds each year at the Empire Polo Club. It has quickly grown to become one of the most respected festivals around the world, with key voices in global pop headlining it.
