Coachella Q&A: DROELOE


Reason #85364534 why I love The Netherlands: DROELOE. The Dutch duo are about to take the desert of Indio, California by (dust) storm for the Coachella Music & Arts Festival. Cut to: me drawing a skull on a face mask because I've been dying to see these two live. Luckily, I was able to sneak the boys some questions leading up to their first performance this weekend, and let me tell you, they win the award for best reaction to them playing. Check it out, below!

Where were you when you first heard you'll be playing Coachella?

We we’re at home working on music when we got a call from our management team. Lets just say there was no music made for the rest of the night and we decided to celebrate instead!

When the Coachella lineup was announced, what's the best reaction you received from a fan, friend, or family member?

I’ve recently had to go the American Consulate to renew my visa. And the case-officer asked my why i think i deserve my visa renewed. My answer simply was “Because I’m playing Coachella” he said, “fair enough” and approved my visa, so i think that's probably the best reaction I’ve had haha.

Are you a Coachella newbie? If so, what are you most excited or most nervous about?

We’ve both never been to Coachella so this year will be or first. Very excited!

Personally I'm pretty nervous for our set, usually I’m never really nervous but Coachella is pretty legendary so the pressure is kinda on i guess.

Describe how you envision the day of your performance to go:

9AM: Wake up, make coffee asap.
11AM: Probably get some breakfast or something to eat.
1PM: Head to the festival. Have a mental breakdown about USB sticks to later realize you have them all with you.
3PM: Act stupid on stage. Trying to not get turned into a meme
5PM: Watch friends act stupid on stage. Trying to turn them into a meme.
7PM: Enjoy Coachella.
9PM: Enjoy Coachella.
11PM: Enjoy Coachella. X10

If you could have any celebrity front row during your show who would it be?

Eric Andre would be pretty cool haha, i’m a really big fan of his work and i keep catching myself re-watching old Eric Andre Show episodes whenever i’m bored.

Out of all of your fellow Coachella artists performing, whose show are you most looking forward to watching?

I’ve constantly been just missing every ODESZA show for the last couple months. Everytime i’m in a place for a couple days i leave like one or two days before they play. So i'm pretty stoked to now finally witness it! And we have a lot of friends playing this year as well so it's gonna be a fun time!

What was the last song you listened to on repeat?

San Holo’s remix of “Ready Yet” by Sasha Sloan

If you could partner with any brand, who would it be and why?

I would love to partner with Adidas, i’ve been a really big fan of everything they’ve been doing over the past couple of years. And i find myself only spending money on Adidas sneakers lately, so Adidas help a up and coming artist out haha.

Post-Coachella, anything exciting on the horizon we should know about and share with the universe?

We’ve been working on something really exciting that’s gonna drop somewhere later in the summer and we’ve got a couple really exciting shows and festivals on the agenda for this next coming months so we’re beyond excited for everything that’s going to happen!
