Revealed featuring Khalid and brass band in high energy rave rehearsal

Last time Surrey-born brothers Howard and Guy Lawrence played Coachella, in 2016 they enhanced their live show with a number of celebrity guest vocals including Lorde (for “Magnets”) , Sam Smith (for “Latch” and “Omen”) and AlunaGeorge (for “White Noise”).

By those high standards, tonight’s performance is relatively low-key — with the exception of Khalid’s late arrival at the first live performance of his 2020 collaboration “Know Your Worth.” Perhaps it’s a sign that the Lawrence brothers are now more confident in their own ability to hold on to Coachella audiences with minimal bells and whistles.

Now more than a decade into the career they started as teenagers, the couple have become de facto experts in delivering a high-energy zest to this point. The Coachella crowd is ready to meet them halfway, and they’re ready to look forward to the duo’s sunset, an exhilarating aerial show. “We want to see maximum energy, maximum vibes tonight,” the brothers announced. To be fair, their wish came true.

“When the fire starts to burn” has the whole crowd moving in unison, while the phone lights come on to illuminate “At night”. Despite playing carnival yesterday, there was no sign of Slowthai other than a big-screen pre-recording for the Grammy-nominated banger “My High.”

The duo ended their performance with the party song “Tondo,” which featured onstage brass band trumpets, but the focus never really left the two brothers on the middle stage. in the sublime performance that the Coachella stage was performed.

As the first record label to be introduced exclusively at the festival, the collective did not take this honor lightly.

Coachella weather report

Where yesterday was too hot, today is definitely too windy. Dust storms surround the area, making visibility a challenge for many who drive to the festival. On the ground, this meant bucket hats flying everywhere, trash cans strewn across fields, and lots of hair turning into hairless strands. Solution? Hold on to your hat, Coachella.
