The search for a substitute for the festival's closing performance is in full swing.
Kanye West has withdrawn from Coachella in order to get therapy for his internet outbursts against his ex-wife Kim Kardashian. The rapper was scheduled to wrap off the music festival in Indio, California, on two weekends, April 15-17 and April 22-24.
Travis Scott was also said to be joining the rapper on stage at Coachella, which would have been his first performance since the Astroworld disaster in November, according to TMZ, but it has also been canceled.
Along singer Harry Styles and Billie Eilish, he was headlining the event. Goldenvoice may not have enough time to find a substitute since the event is approaching, although names like Silk Sonic and The Weeknd are circulating, as reported by Billboard.
Ye recently won a Grammy Award, but he was unable to attend since he had been barred from the event after making numerous threats on social media directed against Kim and Pete, prompting both the Grammys organizers and CBS to make the decision.
Furthermore, he got into an online spat with Trevor Noah who hosted the Grammy Awards ceremony, after supporting the rapper’s ex-wife Kim Kardashian, which reportedly led the Grammys to yank the rapper from the show’s schedule at the last minute, despite his five nominations.
