After reportedly pulling out as a headliner, Kanye West has announced that he is indeed set to storm Coachella this year. And in a unique manner at that.
The rapper was aboard a flight when he used the plane’s intercom to announce that he’ll be bringing his “Sunday Service” concept to the hyper hot festival next month:
“Attention 737 passengers. We’d like to make an announcement that we just booked another show. We will be doing Sunday Service sunrise at Coachella.”
Over the last few weeks, Ye has been staging “Sunday Service” at his Calabasas base, inviting a growing list of artists, musicians, and choirs to fellowship with music and in music.
Explaining how the Coachella engagement came about, the controversial MC said:
“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,. Then they had a mountain, he had a mountain waiting for us. He had a date waiting for us. Only one date that that mountain would be available—Easter Sunday at Coachella. The confirmation was confirmed last night.”
Organizers for the event, which takes place across the weekends of April 12th-14th and April 19th-21st, added to the announcement with:
Kanye continues to be a polarizer, but with moves like this proves he’s still an envelope pusher too.
Are you looking forward to his performance?
