Grande’s headline slot comes after she made her Coachella debut in 2018, dropping into Kygo’s set to perform ‘No Tears Left To Cry’.

The line-up is also notable in its absence of Kanye West, who reportedly pulled out of headlining after experiencing logistical issues with his staging.

According to TMZ, West pulled out of the 2019 event because he didn’t want to perform on the festival’s traditional 40×60 foot stage because it was “artistically limiting.”
“These 40×60 stages are so archaic. It’s the same type of stage on which Shakespeare’s works were performed hundreds of years ago,” a source told the website.

When the festival organisers were unwilling to accommodate West’s demands, they allegedly parted ways.
