Since January, Kanye West has been hosting an outdoor "Sunday Service" every week, and now he's bringing the performance to Coachella 2019. On Easter Sunday (April 21), West will set up on "The Mountain" — a hillside camping spot at the California festival — at 9 a.m. for a special edition of the weekly service.

Speaking to Billboard, Coachella co-founder Paul Tollet revealed that when the idea was first floated about West bringing Sunday Service to the festival, it was an instant yes — but it wasn't without its complications.

"It's challenging for us because we've never done this before," Tollet said. "It was suggested, 'Why don't we try this in camping, since it's in the morning and all the other campers are already there?' Other people going to the show can come early, if they want [and they'll be allowed in]."

Check out West making the official announcement below.

West's "Sunday Service" sessions have largely been taking place in Calabasas, but he also brought the celebration to adidas North American HQ. The likes of Tyler, the Creator and Katy Perry have attended the service, with DMX delivering a passionate prayer one week.

Before Coachella 2019's lineup was announced, West was slated to be one of the headliners. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times earlier this year, the festival's co-founder Paul Tollett confirmed he was scheduled to perform, but his performance was cancelled due to production design issues. Reportedly, West wanted John McGuire to design a custom dome in the middle of the festival grounds.

Coachella 2019 is going down in Indio, California April 12-14 and April 19-21, headlined by Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino, and Tame Impala.
