The Sunday Service gives festivalgoers – and those streaming from home – a peek into what is usually an ultra-exclusive Los Angeles affair. 

Kanye and wife Kim Kardashian have been hosting the hour-long concerts at secret locations, inviting the likes of Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, and Courtney Love, since January. 

The concerts have taken place everywhere from Kim and Kanye’s home to the Adidas headquarters.   

While Kim often shares snippets of the concerts on her Instagram, Kanye’s Coachella concert is the first time the public has been given the chance to see one in full.
