“We were out in Palm Springs and they took us to a little campground, because we were thinking about a little performance in Palm Springs, just a little one," he said. "Then they had a mountain, he had a mountain waiting for us. He had a date waiting for us. Only one date that mountain would be available to us: Easter Sunday at Coachella. That confirmation was confirmed last night.”
In a clip posted by wife Kim Kardashian on Twitter, Kanye appears practically giddy talking about his Coachella performance to all the passengers on a plane.
He was originally in talks to perform at Coachella, but stepped down at the time because the festival could not accommodate building a giant dome for his set. Coachella has since announced Childish Gambino, Tame Impala and Ariana Grande as this year's headliners for the festival, which takes place over two weekends, April 12-14 and April 19-21.
