Kanye West was announced as one of the headliners for this year’s sold-out Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, but don’t count on his protégé Kid Cudi being there. The Cleveland rapper revealed that his absence from the lineup wasn’t by choice.
“Sad news but true, was not invited to coachella this year. bogus, blame the establishment i guess for lunchin on the cudster,” tweeted Cudder of the snub.
The lonely stoner, who has never played at the annual festival in Indio, Calif., will sit on the sidelines as fellow contemporaries including Wiz Khalifa, Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, Cee Lo Green, and more take over the desert.
Disappointed fans will still get a chance to catch Cudi on his international tour this year, which sees him making stops in Canada, Italy, France, Australia, and Japan. Chip Tha Ripper and Cage will join him on the road.
