Gesaffelstein plays his first show in Coachella and premieres music video in the Coachella livestream


Gesaffelstein has marked his return at Coachella with a new and unique live performance since 2015 as well as his first live performance in support of sophomore album Hyperion.

His incredible live performance  was marked by a very special set where the crowd was immersed in a sonically and visually stunning show that featured intense lighting design and a masked Gesaffelstein performing against a backdrop of deep darkness. The set featured the exclusive use of Vantablack VBx2, making Gesaffelstein the first artist ever to use the substance in a live performance.


Gesaffelstein's official music video for "Blast Off" featuring Pharrell Williams, directed by Warren Fu, was premiered in the Coachella Youtube livestream, immediately following his set at the festival. 

Gesaffelstein's live set at Coachella was a brilliant exploration of horrifically minimal noise over hip-hop rhythms. Billboard
