In other news, Skrillex, Fred Again.. and Four Tet have shared a full recording of their closing set from weekend two of Coachella 2023.
The three DJs took the the “TBA” slot after Blink-182 on the main stage on Sunday, which came after Frank Ocean’s withdrawal from Coachella Weekend 2 following doctor’s orders due to leg fractures sustained by the singer in the lead up to the festival.
Also at Coachella, Labrinth was joined onstage by Eilish on April 15 to perform their new collaboration ‘Never Felt So Alone’. The singer surprised fans by joining Labrinth onstage towards the end of his set to deliver the Finneas co-produced song, which previously premiered on HBO’s hit series, Euphoria.
Elsewhere, The Killers are set to headline Life Is Beautiful festival, alongside Kendrick Lamar and ODESZA. This year’s festival, which takes place in September, marks a decade of the Downtown Las Vegas event.
The 1975, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Omar Apollo will also be heading to Sin City this year. Last year, Arctic Monkeys, Lorde and Gorillaz headlined the event.
