FUSE TV - Inside Epik High’s K-Pop Coachella Takeover

Epik High entered the 2016 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival on Friday (Apr. 15) with a fair amount of pressure: They were to be the first K-pop group to ever perform at the long-running Indio festival, all while the trio, their fans and their record label were anxious to get some new music recorded. Yet Coachella is not about being stressed out, and by Saturday afternoon, Tablo, Mithra Jin and DJ Tukutz looked deeply relaxed following a night of music-watching and meeting Kanye West.

Yes, Epik High met Yeezus himself backstage, immediately after he had taken the stage (and had his mic not work, sadly) with A$AP Rocky on Friday night. “He was right in front of us, and he was walking next to us for a while and we didn’t even know,” Tablo tells Fuse. “We said hi, but there were a lot of people saying hi, and he had just come down from the set so he must have been kind of upset. Not the best time to [meet him]… but he was also smiling and being a good guy.”
