Weekend 2 Performance

Set To Go Up Midnight PST Following Performance From Ariana Grande
First J-Pop Group to Ever Play Coachella!
Rolling Stone calls Weekend 1 performance “the best damn rave party…”
“Curious onlookers found themselves pulled into a series of escalating spectacles, where EDM met Japanese culture: happy hardcore joining big-room house and other sects of mainstream EDM. Dynamic and divergent, Perfume’s set was a welcome and intriguing showing, and further evidence that Coachella will continue to take daring risks in the future.”
– Consequence of Sound
 
“For over a decade and a half, the trio known as Perfume have been on a path to change up what it means to a J-pop girl group. They’ve become representatives of futuristic, elegant electro-pop, and their most recent album Future Pop took steps that much further by weaving future bass into their sound.”
– Billboard
 
“Anyone who had never listened to J-Pop before attending Coachella will now be hooked because of Perfume.”
– Noisey
“Their highly anticipated festival set will mark a turning point for J-pop in the West, as well as an international career high for a group already celebrated as phenomenons in the Eastern music market.”
– PAPER
“…there are no shortage of contenders vying to be the next big… J-pop breakthrough act in the US. Based on the new Coachella poster, perhaps… Perfume are up next.”
– Stereogum
“Perfume has been one of the most ubiquitous and highest-selling artists in Japan for more than a decade, with a distinctive electro-pop sound backed by a stylish, futuristic image. But the trio’s musical output is only one part of the equation. Perfume’s live shows are a dazzling collision of technology and choreography that turn cavernous arenas into sci-fi wonderlands.”
– The Verge
Following a Coachella Weekend 1 performance that Rolling Stone called “the best damn rave party on Sunday night,” J-pop superstars Perfume have announced an official web stream of their Weekend 2 performance.
