The Do Lab averted certain peril this weekend by canceling Kaskade’s surprise Redux set at their Big Fish stage at Coachella this Saturday. The performance was canceled in light of the fact that Kaskade’s weekend one performance drew record numbers to the main stage–numbers that would have easily overwhelmed the smaller Big Fish stage.
While the performance was largely unadvertised, fans were tipped off that Kaskade would be performing at the Big Fish stage when the word “Redux” popped up on Saturday’s published stage schedule. See below for image.
Kaskade and The Do Lab offered official apologies on social media (here and here, respectively), with Kaskade stating that “the Do Lab just isn’t set up to handle it,” and the Do Lab posting “we broke the internet, but we can’t go breaking our stage.”
Kaskade fans are not totally out of luck however, as the Grammy-nominated artist will still be performing on Sunday at Coachella’s main stage. Cheers to The Do Lab and Kaskade for keeping fans safe and EDM off of big brother’s radar.
