Fans were hopeful - Kanye West might be a 2019 Coachella headliner. Alas, it was not meant to be, as TMZ reports that negotiations between West's team and the festival organizers have ended with the mutual agreement to cancel all discussion altogether.
According to the reports, the disagreement was the stage design limitations. "These 40x60 stages are so archaic," an alleged "source" said. "It's the same type of stage on which Shakespeare's works were performed hundreds of years ago." Kanye's last appearance at Coachella was back in 2011.
Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, andChildish Gambino have been rumoured to headline the iconic festival, but nothing has been confirmed yet. have also been the subject of lineup-related whispers.
