Watch This: The Chainsmokers reminisce on their first Coachella performance
The Chainsmokers swiftly became headliners within just two years spent in the national spotlight. More recently, the duo has been the subject of attention in the electronic scene for stepping outside the proverbial EDM box and into a more experimental side with quirkier productions like “Roses,” or their surprise performance with Third Eye Blind’s Stephan Jenkins at Coachella.
Members Alex and Andrew refuse to give in to ego surrounding their newfound stardom, however. “8 months ago this wasn’t even a possibility…,” they shared on the second installment of Dreams Are Real. The video covers The Chainsmokers’ first experience at Coachella performing in the Sahara tent, showing just how appreciative and excited the two were to be invited to such an event. Other memorable events captured include cameos from G-Eazy and Stephan Jenkins.
