We had a chat with Madeon following his Coachella performance, and he told us all about what went down.
Sweety High: What makes performing at Coachella different from any other festival?
Madeon: Coachella is iconic. In France, where I grew up, everybody knows about it even though it's held on the other side of the world. Artists tend to bring their A-game, the stages are massive and the lineup is always incredible.

SH: What song was the most fun to play?
Madeon: There is a new song called "Gonna Be Good" that I haven't even released yet but that I played at Coachella. During the show, I perform it 18 feet up in the air on a narrow lift and it's so so so fun. I'm surrounded by visuals made specifically for the lift to create special illusions and I love how it turned out. Seeing the crowd from up there is really moving.
SH: What is your favorite memory or experience from performing at Coachella?
Madeon: I decided to fly my parents in from France at the last minute so they could see the show and I shouted them out at one point, and this massive crowd started cheering for them, it was surreal.
