Kanye West just surprised everyone by announcing that he will be coming to Coachella this year after all. However, the rapper will not be headlining the festival - he was in talks with Coachella representatives in January but due to disagreements over the stage design Kanye opted out of performing. Instead, the I Love It singer is going to bring a bit of spirituality to the festival by holding his Sunday Service on the morning of Easter Sunday, which is the second weekend of Coachella and the last day of the popular music festival.

While Kanye decided not to perform at Coachella, there are many other big acts confirmed such as Ariana Grande, Diplo, Solange, Wiz Khalifa, and Childish Gambino. The Stronger singer has performed three times at Coachella in the past; in 2006, as a headliner in 2011, and most recently in 2016 where he surprised the crowds by briefly joining Diplo and A$AP Rocky on stage for their performances.
As reported by E! News, Kanye dropped the big news on a recent Sunday service, and also on a chartered plane, where Kim recorded the Gold Digger singer sharing the announcement with the passengers over the speakers. The video was posted to her Twitter, and the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star also shared it on her Instagram story.
Over the past months, Kanye has been holding a musical Sunday Service every Sunday with a full gospel choir close to his and Kim's house in Calabasas. The event has turned into something huge on social media, and even though guests are asked to sign a nondisclosure agreement, videos of the service are shared over social media for the public to see. Apart from the Kardashian Jenner klan, there have also been other celebrities in attendance at the exclusive evening service. Paris Jackson, Orlando Bloom, Katy Perry and Courtney Love. According to sources who have been lucky enough to attend 'Church Kanye', the service is preceded by brunch, and as anyone can see in the photos, there is a color-coordinated dress code each time.
