I just have 2 questions about Coachella and then I'm done talking about it forever.— johnn O))) (@Born_2_Lose) January 3, 2019
1. How is Tame Impala billed above Aphex Twin?
2. Idris Elba?
Are we just going to ignore the fact that Idris Elba is a dj in his spare time and is on the coachella line up??— Yewande (@OneYewande) January 3, 2019
