At Coachella, Kanye West made a stately dome declaration or so does the Coleridge poem. And just like in "Kubla Khan", Kanye's dreams of huge domes have proved catastrophic. According to Billboard West was destined for headlines this year when he suddenly demanded a huge dome from the festival, where he rocked himself. Coachella managers tried to explain to Kanye that building a huge dome in the middle of the desert would take too much time and would take up space that would otherwise be "in a big bench portable bathroom". They claimed to be artists, and as such should not have to talk about port-a-potties. Maybe so, but even the Louvre would be hard to understand if it were covered in piss. West and Coachella got involved on the morning of January 1st. Before the day, Scooter Braun had already secured Yes old place for Ariana Grande. She is now headlining with Childish Gambino and Tame Impala.
