Most Eye-Popping Set By an Obscure Act: Woodkid
The artist known as Woodkid is a man of many disguises. He's a successful designer and music director named Yoann Lemoine who has worked with Lana Del Rey and Taylor Swift, among others. But for his Coachella debut on Friday, he brought all his visual talents to bear from the opening moments of his Woodkid set: flashing lights, a big horn section, drums pounding, a video screen of Gothic arches seemingly rushing toward the toward the crowd. It was unexpected and sort of epic, even if it meant Woodkid wasn't the flashiest part of his own set. It delivered his music in epic fashion.
