Kanye West Cancels Coachella Performance Because the Festival Wouldn’t Build Him a Giant Dome

According to reports, Kanye West has canceled his headlining Coachella performance, just two days before the schedule lineup announcement, because the festival wouldn’t build him a giant dome.

Kanye asked co-founder Paul Tollett to build him a custom dome in the middle of the festival, designed by frequent collaborator and set designer, John McGuire. But apparently, the over-the-top set was impossible to build in just four months and would’ve required the rearrangement of the entire festival site, and with the removal of a large section of portable bathrooms. Kanye reportedly became agitated during a phone call with Tollett stating he was an “artist with a creative vision who shouldn’t be spending his time talking about port-a-potties.”

Now, Ariana Grande will be the main headliner for the festival.
