Kanye West is no long performing at this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, pulling out of his double weekend headlining performances two weeks before the event. West was booked for Sundays April 17th and 24th with a special appearance by Travis Scott, who will also no longer be performing.
There’s no word on why West, who legally changed his name to Ye recently, canceled the appearance. Neither Coachella producers Goldenvoice nor West’s team have commented publicly on the matter. The Weeknd may replace West.
A new headlining act is expected to be announced soon; Coachella runs April 15-17 and April 22-24. Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, Swedish House Mafia, 88Rising’s Head In The Clouds Forever and more are performing both weekends.
