There's a lot to talk about re: the Coachella lineup announcement. Arianators are heralding Grande's headline set as a win for gender equality in music, Kanye stans are heartbroken and K-pop stans are booking flights. So if you missed the actual biggest news — that Idris Elba will perform a DJ set — you're forgiven. He confirmed it on Twitter this morning.
Surprised? Don't be. Elba is best known for his acting, People-official Sexiest Man status, and wokeness. But music has actually been his side hustle for a while. He once told Jimmy Fallon that he'd aspired to a radio career in his youth, and has previously booked sets at smaller festivals in the United Kingdom. His DJ name is Big Driis! Big Driis!
Had an epic night in London dj'n with two legends. @davidguetta @iamwill #blessed http://t.co/Y45hKkse— Idris Elba (@Idris Elba) 1355936321.0
More trivia: Elba has featured on a Macklemore song, and will appear in the upcoming Cats movie musical.
That voice + a microphone = one more reason to spend all your money on a Coachella ticket.
