Coachella Q&A: San Holo
Aren't we all just simple beings trying to make our way in the universe? Actually, no. What if I told you that San Holo was now under the control of a new emerging light force? Chill. It's just Coachella, Sunday, in the Sahara Tent and I'll be so lit you won't be able to tell the difference between a lightsaber and a glow stick.
Where were you when you first heard you'll be playing Coachella?
I was in the middle of my Gouldian Finch tour last year. I don’t remember where I was exactly, but I remembered just being mind blown and so humbled. It was real bizarre seeing the poster for the first time, seeing my name in between all those amazing artist.
When the Coachella lineup was announced, what's the best reaction you received from a fan, friend, or family member?
I showed my mom the line-up poster and she saw my name in between artists like Beyonce and Eminem and I could just see the pride in her eyes haha. So cute, love her! Shoutout to all the moms!
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 most memorable Coachella experience?
I’m not a newbie, but definitely not a veteran haha. I played the Do Lab Stage two years ago. It was definitely one of the most memorable shows I have ever played , so I’m really looking forward to playing in the Sahara Tent this year.
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?
Water, definitely water. I’m also bringing my guitar along, which is something I’ve been incorporating into my sets as of last year. Guitar is where it all started for me, so it feels great to incorporate it into my live sets!
If you could have any celebrity front row during your show who would it be?
I have no idea to be honest. But maybe someone like Snoop Dogg? That would be pretty dope!
Out of all of your fellow Coachella artists performing, whose show are you most looking forward to watching?
Definitely want to see Eminem! As for the rest, I’ll just see what happens. I’m just really looking forward to the vibe of the festival itself!
What was the last song you listened to on repeat?
Addict by The Nicholas
If you could partner with any brand, who would it be and why?
I’ve actually just partnered up with Fender a few months back. They make such amazing guitars, amps and pedals. I’ve always been a Fender guy, so it’s great to be collaborating with them!
Post-Coachella, anything exciting on the horizon we should know about and share with the universe?
Definitely! I have some new music coming out soon and I’ll also be doing some more shows. Besides that we’re gonna be doing a lot of cool things with my label bitbird and I’m also working on my album which I might put out this year.
