Debuting the weekly performance series at the beginning of 2019, Kanye West’s Sunday Service has seen him perform gospel interpretations of some of his classic tracks, debut new material, and be joined by high-profile guests such as David Letterman, DMX and Katy Perry.
Confirming that he would be performing his Sunday Service sessions at this year’s Coachella a few weeks ago (Mar 31), the performance will take place at “The Mountain” in the festival’s campground at 9am PT (5pm GMT) on Easter Sunday (April 21).
It will be streamed by YouTube as part of a curated live stream of performances from the second weekend of Coachella which fans can tune into exclusively through Coachella’s YouTube Channel or in the YouTube Music app.
According to YouTube, the second weekend stream will “take a deep dive into the festival experience and deliver fans a slate of original content.” That selection will include encore and live performances, artist commentary, mini-documentaries, and animated adventures.
YouTube added that following Yeezy’s Sunday Service, they will “keep the party going with ‘Coachella Curated,’ a first-ever curated live stream of festival performances and traveling tales from headliners and festival favorites filmed on six continents.”
West was reported to have been one of the Californian festival’s first choices for their headliners this year, but is said to have pulled out after his requests for an ambitious new stage to be built for his set could not be accommodated.
The rapper began hosting the Sunday Service sessions in January, when the first edition saw him rework songs like ‘Ghost Town’, ‘Father Stretch My Hands’, ‘Heard ‘Em Say’, and ‘Reborn’. A number of celebrities have attended the sessions so far, including Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry, KiD CuDi, Diplo, and more.
