YouTube to stream Kanye West’s Sunday Service from Coachella

The rapperr will bring his live sessions series to the Californian festival on Easter Sunday

YouTube is set to stream Kanye West’s Sunday Service from Coachella next weekend.

The rapper previously confirmed that he will bring his new live sessions series, which sees him reinterpret some of his classic tracks in gospel style, to the festival on Easter Sunday.

Sunday Service will take place at “The Mountain” in the festival’s campground at 9am PST on April 21. It will be streamed as part of a curated live stream of performances from the second weekend of Coachella.

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.

The first weekend of Coachella 2019 comes to a close today with a headline set from Ariana Grande, plus appearances from the likes of Soccer Mommy, Pusha T, Kaytranada, Chvrches, Lizzo, and more.

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.
