Lane 8 was supposed to bring Brightest Lights to Indio in 2020 but thanks to the pandemic, everyone had been robbed of what could’ve been. But fast forward two years and Lane 8 was given a second chance to bring a new album with him when he’d play Coachella for the first time since 2015. To Lane 8’s slight misfortune, his Coachella return didn’t begin as he’d ideally hoped, starting 20 minutes behind his set time and explaining that the CDJs he was supposed to use were left in the sun and literally melted. But even with a shortened slot to close out weekend one at the Mojave Tent, Dancing Astronaut‘s 2020 Artist of the Year wasn’t going to let that stop him from putting on a worthy finale.
And while Lane 8 wasn’t part of Coachella’s stream schedule, Victor Visits came through in the clutch as he always does to take the phone-less This Never Happened concept temporarily out of the equation, uploading the 50-minute set in 4K on his YouTube channel. Opening the Channy Leaneagh-assisted opening cut from Reviver, Lane 8’s Coachella set more than made up for the late start, also including a blend of “Brightest Lights” and “Rebel XX,” “Sunday Song,” and even a possible Lane 8 ID at the 40-minute mark, which doubles as ID15 in his “Spring 2022 Mixtape.”
