WE RAN INTO THIS AWESOME AUSSIE WHILE COACHELLA-ING THIS YEAR, AND DISCOVERED WE'D WITNESSED HER VERY FIRST TIME PLAYING THE NOTORIOUS FEST. OF COURSE WE HAD TO COMMEMORATE ANNA LUNOE'S ARTIST INITIATION WITH AN EXTRA SPECIAL VMIX, LUNEY TUNES STYLE
How was it??
Anna Lunoe: Two years ago when I first moved to the U.S., I had this crazy dream that I played Coachella. It was totally unimaginable at that point, but I tweeted about my dream in the hope that if I told the Internet maybe it would come true. When I got the offer to play—two years after—it was a mix of incredible joy with lesser or equal parts paralysing fear. I mean, how do you even prepare for Coachella? But at the end of the day, I just had to demystify it and do what I do best. The set time I was given was super early on Sunday, on the biggest dance stage. I was scared the crowd would be late to arrive to the festival after Saturday night, but luckily the most amazing crowd ever showed up. The best part was running down to meet the them after and hearing stories about how they saw me play here or there and they couldn't miss the show, or how they bought tickets especially for this, or dragged their whole crew along early etc... It felt like somehow that moment made sense of all the years of touring. Pretty magic.
