Kanye West Quit Coachella 'Cos They Wouldn't Build Him A Giant Dome

Kanye West backed out of Coachella after the festival refused to build him a giant dome

Kanye West is absent from this year's Coachella lineup due to a disagreement over his stage design. West wanted the dome to feature state-of-the-art production and video installations with the ability to house numerous festival's 125,000 attendees, performing there instead of the main stage after claiming its size was "artistically limiting". So the festival shuffled things around, giving Tame Impala the headlining sets on Coachella's Saturdays and locking in Ariana Grande to replace West on the festival's two Sunday nights.

Kanye reportedly became agitated when organizers mentioned their logistical concerns over the placement of bathrooms, saying he was an artist with a creative vision who shouldn't be spending his time talking about port-a-potties, Billboard adds. Braun had terminated his professional relationship with West in early December, Billboard has learned, marking the second split in 2018 between the mega-manager and the rapper.

West's lofty request is just the most recent in the star's erratic behavior spanning the a year ago.

It's certainly a disappointment for fans that West will no longer be performing at the festival, which is widely considered one of the biggest music festivals in the world.

"He has some great [production] ideas, but we just weren't able to pull them off right now", Coachella co-founder Paul Tollett told Los Angeles Times without going into detail about the dome "I'd like to circle back with him and figure out a future plan of what to do with what's in his head".

However, given that West had not collected any payments from Goldenvoice or signed any contracts, they made a decision to abandon negotiations with him about the dome shortly before the deadline to announce the lineup arrived.
