Artists "Made in France" at Coachella 2018

The famous Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival returns this year for two weekends, April 13-15 and April 20-22. The announcement of the 2018 lineup for the festival revealed the usual mix of big name mucisal artists and lesser known performers, and also acknowledged a French presence in the festival. Joining the roster of artists this year are several artists whose careers and/or lives are tied to France.  

MHD, the French rapper from the 19th arrondissement of Paris, will perform on Friday April 13 & 20. His music is the precursor of "Afro Trap", a mixture of African music and Trap music.

Joining him on Friday will be Jean-Michel Jarre, the new-age French composer. Jarre is renowned worldwide for being a pioneer of electronic music. Several other France related artists will take the stage throughout the two weekends. The young and talented French DJ, Petit Biscuit, will bring his tracks with unmistakable chopped and twisted vocal leads.

The French-Cuban twin duo, Ibeyi, come with their music that mixes jazz and traditional Peruvian/Cuban instruments. 

 Busy P, another French DJ and the former manager of Daft Punk, will deliver his electro and hip house style to the festival.
