Kanye West Closes Coachella Festival 2011

April 18, 2011
Kanye West Closes Coachella Festival 2011Kanye West has closed this year's Coachella festival with a headline which he dedicated to his late mother.

The rapper called his performance his "most important show" since his mother died suddenly in 2007.

West's headline set was split into three acts, and included songs from his entire career, including recent album 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy'.

The rapper was joined during the set by special guest Justin Vernon - aka Bon Iver - who sang vocals on three songs from the album.

Pusha T also accompanied West and dozens of ballerinas during 'Runaway', which was followed by set closer 'Hey Mama'.

Coachella kicked off on Friday (April 15) and saw headline performance from Kings Of Leon and Arcade Fire.

Other acts on the bill included Wiz Khalifa, Warpaint, Duran Duran and Mumford & Sons.
