Megakonsert cancelled by impossible Kanye-requirements

3. January was Kanye West or Ye, as he sometimes calls himself - is announced as headliner for the music festival Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which is held annually in the Coachella Valley in Coloradoørkenen, California.

Shall we just ignore Kanye, sorry, Ye? Comment

Two days before it contacted, however, West's manager festivalstifter Paul Tollett with a slightly uortodokst requirements:

instead of acting on the stage, he asked Tollett build a giant, custom-designed dome in the middle of the festival.

the Cupola was designed by the West's fixed setdesigner John McGuire, and its only function would be to accommodate West's concert.

This reports Billboard.

the Problem is only that the claim could not possibly be accommodated within the 12 april, when the festival takes place. To get the space to megakuppelen, had the organizers had to rearrange the entire festival, and removing a large proportion of the festivaltoalettene.

This illuminated organizer Goldenvoice for the West's irritation. According to Billboard, he responded that he "is an artist with a creative vision, and should not take the time to say to discuss festivaldoer". He should then have said that the festivaldoene is the organizer's responsibility, before he abruptly let on.

- Impossible to relate to,

West's reasoning was that the stage was too small for the planned groundbreaking tv. Goldenvoice objected that the scene is one of the largest in North America, and that artists such as Lady Gaga and Beyoncé have appeared on the with hundreds of dancers and musicians.

Kanye West: - There is no handicap, it is the "super powers"

the Organizers took apparently do not dispute especially heavy. The West had not signed any contract about the concert, and before the day was over had Tollett contacted with Scooter Braun, founder of the media company SV Projects, and negotiations were started to get into artist Ariana Grande as a replacement.

Less than a day later, was the reservation confirmed.

Braun himself had terminated its relationship with the West in December 2018. According to Fox News, the cause was that the West was "impossible to relate to as a manager".

West and Grande to a short time in advance of have been arguing on Twitter.

- You, I know that grown men are arguing on the web right now, but Miley (Cyrus, ed.anm.) and I have just released our new, beautiful song, so it would be brilliant if you could listed to you in a couple of hours so the girls could have a little bit of the limelight. Thank you, tvitret Grande, with reference to the West's quarrel with the rapper Drake.

It's Rolling Stone who is writing this.

Great show Kanye West is in trouble again. Calling slavery a "choice"

It is not the first time the festival is replacing a headliner on short notice. In December replaced the band Tame Impala artist Justin Timberlake for changes in the Timberlakes tour dates.

West's participation at the festival has been planned for several years, but it was only a short time before the announcement that West's team of managers took contact to produce megakuppelen. The dome should stand a distance away from the main stage, and be large enough to accommodate the West's audience.

the Scene was to stand in the middle of the dome, with the audience on all sides. Video projection and other sophisticated stage effects were also planned.

Ambition should have been to top the previous scenestunt, as the flying stage West had with him on tour in 2016, and the floating glassboksen he shared with artistkollega Kid Cudi on the Tyler, The Creator-curated music festival Camp Flight Gnaw in the last year.


Kuppeldramaet is apparently not unprecedented. According to Billboard, West had exactly the same conflict with the american festival Governors Ball Music Festival, where he should have been dropped because of the same impossible kuppelkravet. According to Rolling Stone refuses festival of such claim shall have been set forth.

2019 is Coachella-the festival's 20th anniversary, and according to Billboard was the tickets sold out in six hours. Other Coachella artists, including reggaeton artist Bad Bunny, rapper Pusha T, the singer Janelle Monáe and the K-Pop band Black Pink.
