Pharrell Williams’s Voice Wasn’t Pleased By Coachella Sand



Hip-hop icon Pharrell Williams had some troubles during his set at Coachella music festival on Saturday night, April 12. The California desert winds caused sand which irritated his voice.

He was joined by numerous guests during his performance, some of them including Snoop Dogg, Nelly, Busta Rhymes, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs and Gwen Stefani.

But before introducing the No Doubt front woman onstage, he said his famous falsetto vocals were suffering as a result of the “stupid f**king wind” bringing up dust in the Empire Polo Club grounds.

He also complained about technical issues which urged him to scrap plans for his stage backdrop.
He addressed the audience in the desert, “You don’t even understand how hurt my feelings are right now, that I’m losing my voice because of all this dust, ’cause we really had something special planned for you.”

“We had the craziest backdrop that had to be brought down and shelved, so you’re not able to really see it.”

Coachella is an annual two-weekend, three-day music and arts festival held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, located in the Inland Empire’s Coachella Valley in the Colorado Desert.
It was founded by Paul Tollett in 1999 and is organized by Goldenvoice, a subsidiary of AEG Live. The event includes many genres of music, including rock, indie, hip hop and electronic dance music, as well as art installations and sculptures.

The main stages are: Coachella Stage, Outdoor Theatre, Gobi Tent, Mojave Tent, and the Sahara Tent. A smaller Oasis Dome was used in 2006 and 2011, while a new Yuma stage was introduced in 2013.
