Coachella Announces Kanye West Replacement Headliner


Swedish House Mafia and The Weeknd will replace Kanye West as Coachella’s Sunday headlining, the festival has announced.

The rapper was set to headline the Southern California musical event alongside Oscar winner Billie Eilish and Harry Styles.

However, the festival released a new line-up poster on Wednesday, confirming the changes coming weeks before the event.

Electronic music supergroup Swedish House Mafia – consisting of Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso – were already listed as artists at the event, although their position on the bill was not clear.

They now head the Saturday line-up alongside Canadian pop superstar The Weeknd, real name Abel Tesfaye.

Coachella’s post was captioned “The Party & The After Party.”

In response to the news, The Weeknd simply tweeted “cXOachella.”

West, 44, previously threatened to quit the slot if he didn’t receive an apology from Eilish on behalf of fellow rapper Travis Scott.

He claimed the 20-year-old singer referred to the tragedy at Scott’s performance at the Astroworld music festival in 2021 during one of her shows, when she stopped the music to help a viewer.

In clips of the show shared online, she can be heard saying, “I’m waiting for people to be okay until I move on.”

Ten people died when fans flocked to the stage during a performance by Scott at the two-day festival in Houston, Texas, in November.

Eilish denied that her comments were directed at Scott.

Coachella, which takes place in the Southern California desert, has experienced multiple delays and cancellations due to the pandemic.

West did not attend last Sunday’s Grammy Awards despite winning two awards after his live performance was reportedly pulled by organizers. Coachella Announces Kanye West Replacement Headliner
