Coachella Q&A: Le Youth
Our fountain of Le Youth pours again, this time with a Q&A leading up to his performance at this year's infamous Coachella Music Festival. We cover everything from his reaction to the news, which fellow performers he's looking forward to seeing, to what's in his travel survival bag. Today also comes with the announcement of a brand new single called "Boomerang" featuring Tay Beckham that you can stream, below, and that we'll be dancing to while Le Youth plays live in the desert in ONE WEEK!
1. When the Coachella lineup was announced, what's the best reaction you received from a fan, friend, or family member?
I was really trying to keep it from my friends so I could avoid them asking for guest passes... just kidding, everyone was really stoked for me.
2. Are you a Coachella newbie? If so, what are you most excited or most nervous about? If you're a veteran, what's the one story that encapsulates your past Coachella experience? You know, the tale that all your friends make you tell over and over again.
I'm a total newbie. I'm excited to play my new song Boomerang- it will be it's first live spin. Aside from that, I'm excited to party. I love Palm Springs. Discussing a secret Le Youth/Goldroom B2B set- we're good at those.
3. What's in your Coachella survival bag and does that bag include any extra special add-ons for your set that we can look forward to?
My Coachella bag will consist of a flash drive, headphones, bottles of water, hotel keycard, and miscellaneous desert festival substances.
4. What fellow Coachella artist are you most likely to watch front & center both weekends?
A few close friends of mine are playing, like Hotel Garuda, Autograf and Goldroom. I'll be front and center for those sets. Excited to see STWO too.
5. Post-Coachella, anything exciting on the horizon we should know about and share with the universe? Do you promise to tell KKS next time you play in LA? Pinky promise?
My new song, Boomerang feat. Tay Beckham will in full swing. I have a lot of new music coming out this Spring/Summer. KKS will always be on the list for LA shows :)
Speaking of, listen to "Boomerang," below!
