Grimes has shared an aftermovie about her failed Coachella weekend one set “stunt”.

The singer’s festival set on April 14 was engulfed by a myriad of problems, leaving her screaming out in frustration multiple times.

She apologised to the crowd at the time, saying: “All my tracks are double tempo and I can’t do the math. They’re borderline un-mixable, so the rest of my set won’t be mixes but it’ll still be fun.”

Before hitting the stage for her set during weekend two of Coachella, she played a short film which poked fun at the situation. She started her performance with a video that showed a series of masked characters trolling the singer with comments such as “she can’t DJ”.

Now, Grimes has shared the full video clip on social media. The musician took to X/Twitter to share it writing: “I’ve been working w members of @KNGMKRlabs since the beginning of Grimes – together we’ve pulled off some beautiful chaos (such as the grimes workout routine/ eyeball surgery controversy, the genesis music video etc) But my all time fave is when we manically made this video in 2 days last week.”

She continued: “Their experience and talent across media make them one of the most compelling AI teams and I am super excited to take writing, cinema, and performance art to the next level with them in the next few years

“These are my ride or die’s and if you liked the Coachella stunt, I recommend hitting up my favorite weirdos —-> accidental launch of @kngmkrlabs. (They also executed my main screen Coachella visuals – minus the Anyma collab and the fortnight/ xite AR + Grimes AI)”

One of Grimes’ team members has also come forward to explain what really went on during her weekend one Coachella set that led her to experience a myriad of problems.

Daouda Leonard, Grimes’ manager took to X/Twitter to address the situation, saying: “The technical error that happened with the CDJs and the BPM reading incorrectly was caused because of an incorrect analysis setting on Recordbox that we were purposely set that way to trouble shoot syncing a song with a video during rehearsals.

“The computer that was used was not Grimes, it was someone who worked on the visual team,” he continued. “Unfortunately when we had to do a last minute update to one of the tracks, we updated the files on the SD cards using that persons computer. The only reason we used his comp was because our TM had to handle some security/stage business and he entrusted that person to make the update, that was a failure on the team.”

In other Coachella news, Kid Cudi‘s set at came to an abrupt end on April 21 after the rapper broke his foot during his performance.
