Muna Looks Back on Coachella: We caught up with indie pop band Muna soon after their second Coachella set. With a tour opening for Taylor Swift on their calendar, Muna shouldnhave a huge year…
How do you think the set went (on weekend one)?
Not going to lie we think it went very well, haha. I think that Coachella is one of those events where the energy is very overpowering, and our goal was to just kind of submit to it and ride it like a wave and have fun. I think we did a good job, I’m proud of us.
The crowd was thick, well outside of the tent. Were you surprised to see it so packed?
We couldn’t even see that far back, really! But yeah, we were shocked.
Were you able to check anyone else out, or are you going to on weekend two?
Yeah, we stayed to see Wet Leg whom we love. They played Mojave after us so that was a low lift for us tired lesbians in terms of maneuvering the festival. We were able to see some of Ashnikko weekend two which was so fun. And Bad Bunny 🙂 But we had to leave both weekends after Friday night to make it to other shows we were playing.
Will the set change on weekend two, or is it pretty much nailed down? (I’m thinking boygenius…)
We added two songs for weekend two! Runner’s High and Solid. But the boys came back. It was very fun to get to run around the stage with them. We would do it a thousand times over.
What do you have planned for the rest of the year?
We are going to be touring, both doing a headline and opening for Taylor Swift, through the summer. Then we’re going to the UK for some shows with Boygenius and Ethel Cain, whom we can’t wait to meet. If we ever have downtime we’re hoping to hole up somewhere and start working on the next album.
