I had the great pleasure of being the house audio nerd for the KROQ Coachella House.
Week one was amazing with appearances by M83, Kimbra, Florence and the Machine and performances from The Hives, Grouplove, The Shins and more.
My responsibilities included the FOH mix, monitor mix and the broadcast mix for all the live performances.
(I did not mix the artists who toured with their own for … Grouplove, Deathgrips, and Oberhofer all carried their own engineers)
Really enjoyed mixing The Shins acoustic performance, and The Hives full band set. Great energy.
