Canadian singer-songwriter Grimes, also known as Claire Boucher, expressed regret to her fans after experiencing tragic technical glitches during her recent performance at the Coachella on Saturday, 13th April.

Grimes Issues Apology Via An X Post And Addressed The Controversy On Coachella Set

During the set, Grimes informed the audience via an X post about the challenges she was facing, including tracks playing at double speed, “I want to apologize for the technical issues with the show tonight. I wanted to come back rly strong and usually I always handle every aspect of my show myself – to save time this was one of the first times I’ve outsourced essential things like rekordbox bpm’s and letting someone else organize the tracks on the sd card etc. i had a bad feeling beforehand not having run everything thru the cdjs myself and tho I flagged it I wasn’t insistent.”

Grimes further explained. “The big lesson for me was a mix of 1 if u want it done right, do it yrself 2 be a cunt even if ppl feel bad 3 probably pretend it’s fine and engage w the crowd rather than spend a whole show slumped over the desk trying to fix software when ur meant to be entertaining.”

Grimes felt disheartened at the moment and reassured her fans that she would strive for flawlessness in the upcoming shows, personally overseeing every aspect of the production. ” I will personally organize all the files next week. I willl not let such a thing happen again. I’ve spent months on this show, making music and visuals, and admittedly am not in the best mood atm But, yeh – next week will be flawless, everything will run thru my hands Some good lessons learned.”

She concluded her statement with wishes and blessings for her fans. “Bless y’all. The cdjs were showing me bpms like 370 so I couldn’t even mix manually by ear and the front monitors were off so it was literally sonic chaos on my end trying to guess how stuff was sounding for u guys Plz forgive me! Love, always”

Fans expressed understanding and support in response to Grimes’ apology, showing appreciation for her transparency and commitment to improvement in her shows.
