He’s Dris, DJ Big Dris. He may not be slipping into a 007 tuxedo, but Idris Elba is DJing at Coachella 2019.
While most know him for hitting the big and small screens (and swooning us over in the process), the literal sexiest man alive just got a little hotter now that the world has learned that Idris Elba is also a DJ. And not just any DJ. The 46-year-old is so good at spinning that he’s officially a part of Coachella 2019’s lineup.
Idris’ music career dates all way back to 1986, way before his acting days. It even includes performances at the NBA All Star parties, Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tour, and the intro to Jay-Z’s album American Gangster. Still, some eagle-eyed fans were shock to notice Idris Elba’s name tiny printed in the full list of performers scheduled to play at this year’s festival.
