Grimes apologizes online for her disastrous Coachella show: “Being bad at math is not a sin”

Grimes’ recent show at Coachella became the center of attention due to significant technical problems that went viral on platforms such as X and TikTok. The Canadian artist, during her performance on April 13, faced complications due to the excessive acceleration of her tracks, which she described as a situation where “all of her tracks were going twice as fast.”

The experimental performer took the Sahara stage to offer a DJ set scheduled to last 50 minutes. However, about halfway through her performance, she had to start the song again several times ”Music 4 Machines”, because it was running at a speed twice as fast as expected. Chaos continued throughout the rest of her performance.

“This is hard to explain, but we are having a major technical error,” he told the crowd. “Don’t judge me for being bad at calculating things.” As she explained during her performance, the problem had a numerical root and she could not solve it at the time: “I can’t do the math. They’re almost impossible to mix, so the rest of my set won’t be mixes, but it will still be fun.”

On more than one occasion, he let out several angry cries. due to frustration over the poor performance of the live show. “They know that being bad at math is not a sin”, he apologized and provoked a series of comments on social networks.

Subsequently, through a statement on platform X (formerly Twitter), Grimes apologized for the technical inconveniences, promising a considerable improvement for his next presentation next April 20th. His commitment was focused on a stronger comeback, but he acknowledged that it took personal involvement in all aspects of his show to ensure its successful execution.

“I want to apologize for the technical problems with tonight’s show. I wanted to come back very strong and I usually handle all aspects of my show myself – to save time this was one of the first times I’ve outsourced essential things like rekordbox bpm’s and letting someone else organize the tracks on the sd card etc. I had a bad feeling beforehand because I hadn’t gone through everything myself and even though I pointed it out, I wasn’t insistent.” read the extensive apology.

Along those same lines, he continued to talk about the “big lesson” he learned from the experience and highlighted the importance of doing things yourself if “you want them to be done right.” Plus, he doesn’t feel bad about being rude “even if it makes people feel bad.” Finally, he promised to be more interactive with the audience, in case glitches occur in the future, and assured fans that nothing would go wrong during his second weekend performance at Coachella.

“I will personally organize all the files next week. I won’t let something like this happen again. I’ve spent months on this show, making music and visuals, and I have to admit that I’m not in a good mood at the moment. But “Next week will be perfect, everything will pass through my hands” he claimed.

Among the reasons why her concert sounded very bad to the attendees, the artist gave an explanation: “The CDs were showing me bpms like 370 so I couldn’t even mix manually by ear and the front monitors were off, so it was literally sonic chaos on my part trying to guess what things sounded like to you. Please forgive me. Always with love”.
