The War On Drugs were the best show at coachella 2018

Back to all The War On Drugs reviews


This band is absolutely incredible live. I know their music can’t be a bit hard to get into on initial listen but I assure you it grows on you over time.

They had a fairy small crowd at coachella with more mainstream artists going on elsewhere and people lining up for the shitty Weeknd. Some people may be upset by this but I’ll take it as a good thing because I was able to get a pretty perfect spot for War On Drugs. As soon as I saw the Coachella lineup I was hoping for War at sunset and Coachella gave it to me on my favorite stage Outdoor.

As for the performance it was just masterful. There were so many times during the show I was literally just saying “holy shit he’s good” to myself. Their songs just come to life and are so much better in person than when listening to the record. Under The Pressurw, which they closed with, isn’t even one of my favorite songs but love it has altered the way I see that song now. The short version is go see The War On Drugs live if you can
