Jai Paul Performs Live For 1st Time Ever At Coachella
Jai Paul performed live for the first time in his career at Coachella on Saturday night. The elusive pop artist took over the Mojave Stage to perform several fan-favorites, including “Genevieve” and “100,000.” The only videos from the event to be found online come from fans on the ground, as the performance wasn’t featured on the live stream on YouTube for Coachella.
Ahead of his appearance at the iconic music festival, Jai Paul shared a statement admitting he was nervous about the show. “Yoo it’s Jai… this weekend I’m gonna be playing my first ever live show,” he began in the note for his fans. “I always wanted to do something like this but yeah Im not gonna lie I am absolutely shitting it. Anyway, I just wanted to let u lot know how much I appreciate all you staying with me for all this time. Hopefully it’s gonna be worth it. Rehearsals been going good so far i reckon… Not long to go innit. For those of you able to make to make it out there, i will see you in a few day.”
The Crowd At Coachella
On stage, Jai Paul brought out no guests and provided fans with absolutely no between-songs banter, according to Pitchfork. While many fans on social media were excited about witnessing Jai Paul’s “legendary” performance, others were unhappy about there not being any livestream for the fans at home. “how i’m going to bed tonight that coachella pulled jai paul set from livestream…,” one wrote with a Wolverine meme. Another wrote, “aaaaaaand jai paul coachella stream replaced with a rerun of snail mail. incredible consistency from jai paul on the world stage. i love him so much.”
Jai Paul released his last project, Leak 04-13 (Bait Ones), back in 2019. The album consisted primarily of official versions of leaks from 2013. Check out some clips from Jai Paul’s Coachella appearance below.
