The Weeknd threatens to pull out of coachella unless he gets the same pay as Kanye West by saintbillion(m) : 9:20 am On April 7, 2022
The Weeknd has threatened to pull out of Coachella because his pay is less than Kanye West's expected paycheck.
It was revealed on Wednesday, April 6, that The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia were set to replace Kanye West, who recently dropped out of both of his Sunday headlining slots.
West was reportedly prepared to make $8 million, plus a $500,000 production fee if he played the festival.
A source told Page Six: "The Weeknd came in at short notice to take Kanyeâ€™s top spot. But Phil Anschutz [who owns the Coachella Festival through AEG Live] wanted to hold on to Kanyeâ€™s money and pay The Weeknd far less, just a few million. The festival would pocket the rest."
This led to negotiations between The Weekndâ€™s management and Anschutzâ€™s company Goldenvoice, which produces the festival.
The source added: "Even after Coachella announced the new lineup on Wednesday, a deal wasnâ€™t in place for The Weeknd, who threatened to pull out at an hourâ€™s notice if he didnâ€™t get the same deal as Kanye.
"Finally, on Wednesday â€” faced with the prospect of a second headline act pulling out of Coachella at the last minute â€” Anschutzâ€™s company caved and agreed to pay The Weeknd the same money."
