Kanye West Allegedly Pulled Out Of Coachella Because He Couldn’t Build A Dome

When Coachella announced its headliners this year, Kanye West’s name was surprisingly left out of the headlining slot that he was rumored to fill and now new reports offer more insight into what exactly happened to cause Kanye to be left off of the bill of the legendary festival.

According to Billboard, New Year’s Day was the date on which Kanye hit festival organizers with a last-minute request for his set, asking that a giant dome be built on festival grounds for his performance, forgoing the traditional main stage. The dome was set to be designed by John McGuire. However, the specs of the dome apparently made it impossible to construct in four months and would require that the festival grounds be rearranged, effectively removing a portion of portable bathrooms to accommodate Kanye West.
