Kanye West has announced plans to bring his ‘Sunday Service’ show to Coachella 2019.
Set to take place on Easter Sunday (April 21st) at 9am, the show will be a continuation of the weekly performance series West launched at the start of this year.
Joined by a host of musicians, backing vocalists and choir, the ‘Sunday Service’ sees Kanye, plus special guests, perform gospel versions of his own tracks as well as soulful versions of other well known popular songs.
“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.” Kanye told the crowd during yesterdays service.
“Then they had a mountain, he had a mountain waiting for us. He had a date waiting for us. Only one date that mountain would be available to us: Easter Sunday at Coachella. That confirmation was confirmed last night.”

Earlier this year Coachella co-founder Paul Tollett confirmed Kanye was to be one of the main headliners at this festival, sharing the bill with the likes of Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino, Janelle Monae, Kid Cudi, Wiz Khalifa, Pusha T, and Bad Bunny.
However, rumours soon surfaced that West had pulled out of the event due to conflicts with festival organisers over his desire to perform in a custom-built dome in the middle of the festival grounds at the Empire Polo Fields in Indio, California rather than on the main stage.
Whatever the truth may be, we are SO EXCITED that after so much back and forth, Kanye is officially now confirmed for the hugely popular summer festival.
