Back in February, the trio performed another surprise set with The Lot Radio before playing at Times Square.
This pre-show set saw Fred Again.. rewinding Four Tet dropping ‘Country Riddim’ which went viral for what people named, “the worst wheel up of all time”.
According to Billboard, the trio were set play on the satellite stage of Coachella’s main stage, which was previously built as an ice rink for Frank Ocean’s set, but wasn’t used.
Frank Ocean was originally planned to close the festival however, after pulling out citing a leg injury, the slot was left as ‘TBA’.
Fred again.. went on to post cryptic messages teasing the announcement with Four Tet doing the same with a selfie of himself in a t-shirt reading “OMG TBA”.
