Jai Paul is set to take the stage at Coachella this year, marking the enigmatic musician’s first-ever live performances. He takes the stage on Sunday, April 16, and again on April 23. Other musicians on the bill seem to be pretty excited, with Kaytranada, for one, tweeting, “forget about me performing, i’m going to see Jai Paul.” This year’s headliners are Bad Bunny, Frank Ocean, and Blackpink.

In 2019, the musician issued Leak 04-13 (Bait Ones), an “official” version of the unfinished debut album that was leaked in 2013, along with two previously unreleased songs. He’s since marked the 10th anniversary of his track “BTSTU” with remixes and archival material, and made a rare cameo on Atlanta earlier this year. He’s continued to work with his brother, A. K. Paul, on their Paul Institute operation, which issued a six-song EP titled Summer 2020 in the titular year.
