This is the second year in a row that Coachella has had to book another second major replacement after The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia replaced Kanye West last year.
It was messy. There is some beauty in chaos. “It’s not what I intended to show, but I’m enjoying being out there and will see you soon,” Ocean said in a statement following his controversial collection last week.
