On the one hand I thought it was great Blur were headlining Coachella. But on the other hand, it's a bit of an odd choice. Blur were never that big here in the US to begin with. A lot of Americans my age would know Song 2, but 1997 was a long time ago.

And lo, the crowd wasn't very receptive. Perhaps Blur's management should have known this festival in 2024 really wouldn't have their target audience 🤷🏻‍♂️

    I watched Blur weekend 1 set and it was really good. The audience, as you stated, wasn't into them.

    Now for me, it was No Doubt that I thought would headline, but they killed it. So good in their reunion. I watched both weekend 1 and weekend 2 sets.

      I must admit I'm making comments about a thing I haven't seen with my own eyes. I should do that.

      From all accounts No Doubt really did kill it, I'm looking forward to finding their set online somewhere and watching it.
