The official lineup for Coachella was announced and it’s headlined by Childish Gambino, Ariana Grande, and Tame Impala. But many people were surprised to see Idris Elba’s name on the flyer.

You read it correctly, the actor has a DJ set at the festival.

If you didn’t already know, Idris Elba has been DJ’ing since he was 14 years old. “My uncle was a DJ and he used to do weddings and christenings, and basically I was his box boy,” Elba told Mixmag, a British electronic dance and clubbing magazine.

If you follow him on Twitter, you would notice that he regularly tweets about his side hobby.

“It’s ironic that I’ve definitely reached a pinnacle in my acting space, which is amazing, but it means that I can’t really take time out to concentrate on music,” he told Dancing Astronaut in 2017.
