On Sunday, Kanye West surprised fans with the announcement that he’ll bring his Sunday Service to Coachella. The special performance will take place on Easter Sunday, April 21st at 9:00 a.m. (weekend two only) on the Coachella grounds in Indio, CA. You can watch a video of Kanye confirming the performance during today’s Sunday Service in the video posted by Coachella below:

Kanye West’s Sunday Service on Easter, Weekend 2 🙏

In a separate video posted by West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, Kanye once again confirms the booking via PA announcement on an airplane:

The relationship between Kanye West and Coachella has been particularly strained this year. While initially on the shortlist to headline the desert festival in Indio, CA, West was removed from the lineup when the festival reportedly refused to build him a special dome stage in the center of the festival grounds. Coachella chose to move forward without him, announcing a lineup topped by Childish Gambino, Tame ImpalaAriana Grande, and more.

In the time since Coachella’s 2019 Kanye plans were scrapped, West has kept busy with an interesting new project of his own, Sunday Service. Every Sunday for the last several months, the rapper/producer has hosted ultra-exclusive gatherings at which he delivers gospel-inspired performances with help from a full live band and gospel choir—all clad in angelic white (and sometimes black).

Since the events have remained exclusive affairs, the public has only been able to experience Kanye’s Sunday Service via Instagram videos posted by attendees—a list that includes celebrities like rappers DMX and Kid Cudi, late-night host David Letterman, pop star Katy Perry, and more.

It appears the time apart has been good for Ye and Coachella. Now, even though there’s still no dome, all of Coachella will get the chance to join the congregation.
