Coachella Co-founder Reveals How Kanye Dropping Out Impacted the Festival

Coachella co-founder Paul Tollett recently spoke to the Los Angeles Times about the difficulties of replacing Kanye West after the rapper decided to drop out of the festival.

Tollett spoke about Ye’s last minute decision to remove himself from the 2022 lineup and explained that while it caused a lot of moving parts to be set back at the time, he is still “good with Kanye.” He said, “I Zoomed with him a couple days prior and I think it was a good decision for him.” Tollett eventually replaced Ye with co-headliners The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia. When he was initially asked who Tollett thought would be a good substitute he answered, “I said, ‘I actually don’t know yet. Right now I’m a little stunned with Kanye leaving. I’ve got to think what to do here.”

While Ye’s decision was close to a PR nightmare for Coachella, it appears that there is still a strong relationship between the artist and the co-founder. It remains to be seen if Ye will headline another Coachella festival down the line.
