Disclosure that Khaled and the brass band joined during the high-energy rave group

The last time Surrey-born brothers Howard and Jay Lawrence played Coachella, in 2016, they boosted their live show with a number of notable guest singers including Lorde (for “Magnets”), Sam Smith (for “Latch” and “Omen”) and AlunaGeorge (for “White Noise”).

By such high standards, tonight’s performance was relatively light on surprises – with the exception of Khaled’s late appearance in the first-ever live performance of their 2020 collaboration Know Your Value. Perhaps this is a sign that the Lawrence brothers are now more confident in their ability to keep the Coachella crowd captivated by minimal bells and whistles.

“When the fire starts to burn” the whole crowd moves in unison, while the phone lights flash to light up the “night.” Although the festival played yesterday, there’s no sign of Slowthai other than the pre-recorded format on the big screens of Grammy-nominated “My High.”

The duo concluded their set with the party song “Tondo,” joined on stage by a trumpet section of the brass band, but the focus never left the siblings center stage during the kind of high performance that the Coachella stage was made for.

The sudden appearance of Jackson Wang is all Twitter can talk about

While Disclosure is busy bringing in one of the weekend’s biggest crowds on the outdoor stage, 88rising is doing an equally impressive job on the Coachella main stage.

The first record company ever to be given a performance of their own at the festival, the group doesn’t take this honor lightly.

Since 2015, 88rising has been working with artists and creators from across Asia, and tonight, the Los Angeles-based company brings in 80-minute big boys and girls with an epic roster as well as a troupe of dancers and multiplayer. layered stage.

A mini version of the hugely successful Head in the Clouds, it’s a perfect variety show – with tracks from Thai rapper Millie, South Korean songwriter Bebe, Jakarta-born Taylor Swift and singer Nikki as well as Indonesian rappers Rich Brian and Warren Hugh.

However, it is the unannounced appearance of Chinese superstar Jackson Wang that is making the festival lose its collective sanity.

With his silver-blue hair and red gloves on majestic screen, glamorous Wang snakes his way through ten minutes of Michael Jackson-inspired choreography with a flair for a Las Vegas wizard, leaving many fans more than happy with his arrival, but also wondering why. He hasn’t been on stage for at least an hour.

An annoying hole at the end

We find our first legitimate saturated hole of the weekend at the set of Mojave Theater in Turnstile. Massive surfing and an abundance of falling limbs accompany the gritty way of hardcore action in the US with melodic but still downright ferocious punk.
