Watch Mac DeMarco join Lil Yachty for a huge Coachella set

Mac DeMarco and Lil Yachty perform at Coachella 2024

Lil Yachty surprised fans at his huge Coachella set last night (Sunday, April 14) by bringing out Mac DeMarco as a special guest. Check out footage of the moment below.

The American rapper, singer, songwriter and record producer – whose real name is Miles Parks McCollum – took to the stage at the Indio festival last night, in what was the final day of the first weekend.

Initially, the intense set by Yachty kicked off with the rapper performing five back-to-back tracks from his 2023 album, ‘Let’s Start Here’. Walking on the stage as ‘the BLACK seminole’ was played over a tape, he launched into ‘IVE OFFICIALLY LOST ViSiON!!!!’ and ‘THE zone~’, before delivering renditions of ‘pRETTy’ and ‘running out of time’ – which he performed alongside Justine Skye – and ‘drive ME crazy!’.

From there, fan favourites including ‘Flex Up’ and ‘Coffin’ were embedded in the 21 song setlist, as well as covers of BRAM’s ‘Broccoli’ and ‘ON THE RADAR CONCRETE CYPHER’ by Concrete Boys.

However, it was towards the end of the set that Yachty delivered one of the most noteworthy moments – bringing out slacker-pop king Mac DeMarco as a surprise guest.

Here, the two came together to perform two tracks from DeMarco’s discography. The first of which was ‘On The Level’ – taken from DeMarco’s 2017 album ‘This Old Dog’ – while the second was ‘Chamber Of Reflection’, shared 10 years ago as part of the ‘Salad Days’ LP.

Check out footage of the collaboration below, as well as the full Lil Yachty setlist.

Lil Yachty’s 2024 Coachella setlist was:

‘THE zone~’
‘running out of time’ (with Justine Skye)
‘drive ME crazy!’
‘Split / Whole Time’
‘Flex Up’
‘Get Dripped’
‘Broccoli’ (DRAM cover)
‘Gimme da Lite’ (Southside & Lil Yachty cover)
‘One Night’
‘Strike (Holster)’
‘On the Level’ (with Mac DeMarco)
‘Chamber of Reflection’ (with Mac DeMarco)

The collaboration between the rapper and the singer-songwriter last night comes after the two joined forces on Yachty’s aforementioned 2023 album ‘Let’s Start Here’. In the release, DeMarco is credited as a writer on two tracks – ‘Drive Me Crazy!’ and ‘Failure’.

The album also featured a huge number of additional guests other than DeMarco, including MGMT’s Ben Goldwasser, Alex G, Daniel Caesar, Fousheé, Teezo Touchdown, Justine Skye and Diana Gordon.

Elsewhere in yesterday’s instalment of Coachella 2024, the night saw sets from Sublime, Blur and No Doubt, before Tyler, The Creator headlined that evening.
