Today, Easter Sunday, Kanye West will deliver the first-ever public edition of his ongoing Sunday Service events at Coachella. The 9:00 a.m. PT session in the Coachella campgrounds follows West’s surprise appearance during Kid Cudi’s Saturday set, which saw West and Cudi perform a few tracks from their collaborative 2018 project, KIDS SEE GHOSTS.
The relationship between Kanye 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 Impala, Ariana Grande, and more.
In the time since Coachella’s original 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 many more.
It appears the time apart has been good for Ye and Coachella. Now, even though there’s still no dome, all of Coachella (and everyone tuning in from home) will get the chance to join the congregation.
