Playing a prime slot at Coachella is easier said than done. In season two, episode eight of Martin Garrix's eponymous YouTube series, the camera cuts to Alesso giving Garrix a pre-show pep talk in his trailer. Nerves seem high offstage and even onstage, technical difficulties ensue.
However, as soon as show time hits, everything begins to run like clockwork. The packed-out Sahara Tent performance leads with a spine-chilling, cinematic rendition of "In the Name of Love" that's followed by Garrix shouting "What's up Coachella?!" with a newborn confidence.
Watch highlights of Martin Garrix's set, alongside heartwarming reactions of his team post-set, below.
