With Kanye West officially out of his headlining spot for Coachella, the festival organizers are looking for someone to replace him – fast!

As it stands now, The Weeknd and Red Hot Chili Peppers are in the running to take over for The College Dropout.

Festival organizers had initially reached out to Silk Sonic, but Bruno Mars shut down the idea saying there wouldn’t be enough time to get a show together in such short notice.

The Weeknd is coming off a hot run and festival organizers feel he would make a great choice to cover ‘Ye’s shift.


Finally, the Red Hot Chili Peppers fit the bill as they’re a So.Cal based band and are currently about to embark on a tour for their new album. A headlining spot at Coachella could definitely spark momentum for them.

Either way, if you’re taking over for ‘Ye, that’s a big spot to fill.
