Idris Elba leaves fans speechless with his debut DJ set at Coachella

He’s had a slew of blockbuster films under his belt, modelled for tons of campaigns, has been named People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive, and dabbles in the occasional DJ set. 

Safe to say, Idris Elba has many talents. 

The actor, who is in the running to replace Daniel Craig as the next Bond, performed a DJ set at Coachella, and fans were suitably impressed. 

The 46-year-old made his Saturday night debut at the festival in Palm Springs, spinning house, techno and other bangers during his performance. 

The set, which lasted two hours, took place in the Yuma tent which hit full capacity as festival goers flocked to see the British star in action. 

Depsite his slot clashing with Billie Eilish, Aphex Twin, and Juice WRLD, Idris showed off his turntable skills to a packed crowd. 

And it went off. 

Soon Twitter was rampant with fans discussing what they had just witnessed. 

One said: So i’m inside Idris Elba’s DJ set. This is the biggest demographic cross-section i have ever seen at Coachella. He’s currently spinning inner city. House music will save the world.

Another fan couldn’t quite believe what they’d just witnessed: “God damn, Idris Elba is slaying the Yuma tent right now at Coachella.”

A third festival goer said: “Honestly Idris Elba has made my Coachella. Mad.”

Iris has transferred his DJ skills into the acting world, as he’s currently portraying a failed DJ in his new Netflix film, Turn Up Charlie.

The movie is centred on a struggling DJ and eternal bachelor who gets a final chance at finding success, plotting to rebuild his music career.
