Praise Be — Kanye West Is Bringing His Sunday Service to Coachella (at Sunrise!)
Kanye West will, in fact, perform at the music festival after backing out of a Coachella headlining gig earlier this year
Over the intercom system of what appeared to by a privately charted plane, the rapper and producer announced that he’s bringing his gospel service to Coachella on Easter Sunday, April 21. “Attention 737 passengers, we’d like to make an announcement that we just booked another show,” West said in a video posted to Twitter by wife Kim Kardashian West. “We will be doing Sunday Service sunrise at Coachella.”
“Kanye West‘s Sunday Service on Easter, Weekend 2 🙏,” the Coachella official account Tweeted Sunday.
The Sunday Service is a West-hosted, invite-only religious event where celebrities like Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have been spotted. Although it’s exclusive, fans and social media followers can usually catch a glimpse of the service on Kardashian West’s Instagram and Snapchat stories — many of which feature sweet clips of daughter North West jamming out to her dad’s music, performed by a full gospel choir.
West’s announcement follows January reports that claimed he was in talks to headline the 2019 festival, but pulled out due to stage negation issues with Coachella’s production company, Goldenvoice.
According to TMZ reports, the dispute was over the size of the stage, which West deemed “artistically limiting.” Goldenvoice did not want to “compromise the other acts” in order to fulfill his request and ultimately turned down the demand.

Reps for West and Goldenvoice did not immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment at the time.
Now, a West-Coachella performance is back on, and it’s just one month away.
