It's unclear what prompted West's withdrawal from the festival. The rapper was scheduled to perform the closing night of each weekend at Coachella, which takes place April 15-17 and April 22-24. Harry Styles and Billie Eilish are still slated to perform.

In February, West stated his intention to bring out Travis Scott during his now-canceled Coachella spot. The appearance would have marked Scott's first major concert since the Astroworld disaster, where a crowd surge killed 10 and injured hundreds.
