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.
