IOn the heels of the surprise departure of Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, less than two weeks from the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, several names of stars and groups ready to enter the fray have started to emerge. .
The absence of a 24-time Grammy Award-winning personality leaves a huge gaping hole in the lineup for Sundays April 17 and 24, when all seats for the event are sold out.
Swedish DJ group, Swedish House Mafia, appear on Coachella’s solo lineup, but without an assigned date, so without making any big moves, this might prove to be the best alternative to cover for Ye’s absence.
Another option is to simply move the order in which certain artists are placed so far. Thus, rapper Doja Cat, who appears after Ye in the Sunday lineup, would be the first choice to replace him.
However, hip-hop artist Tyler the Creator is also one of the big favorites among Coachella attendees and would certainly be ready to take the stage, since on April 8 he is finishing a tour of the country and would arrive with his drums. recharged.
After being introduced to the Grammys, Silk Sonic would also be a good alternative for the connection he can make with the audience through his stage performances.
Now, if it’s all about empathy, the Red Hot Chili Peppers are in the spotlight, as their new album “Unlimited Love” would justify their call as a replacement.
Although it looks more complicated, the presence of the Korean group BTS would give a breath of fresh air to the festival, especially since the media would be very attentive to what could be one of the last presentations of Asian artists before they don’t have to do their military service in their country, which will keep them away from music for 18 months.
Likewise, Bad Bunny’s name is still on the radar of Coachella organizers, where he received strong reviews for his appearance two years ago.
Singers Lil Nas X and Frank Ocean, as well as the band Rage Against the Machine, are less likely to be considered. However, anything can happen.
