Young Miko Brings Blazing Performance to the Desert in Coachella Debut

Young Miko made her grand debut at the 2024 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, where she brought her blazing Puerto Rican flow to the desert on Friday (April 12).

At 4:45 p.m. Pacific Time—just as a packed crowd chanted “Miko, Miko”—the breakthrough singer and rapper opened the fest with a thumping performance of “Lisa,” followed by a chill version of “Tempo,” her track with Marshmello. Accompanied by a live band and her Boricuan swag, Miko was casually dressed in baggy denim shorts, a tie-dye muscle tee, white sneakers, and metallic sunglasses, as she graced the stage from side to side. 

“Coachella, it’s so exciting to be here, puñeta!” the artist exclaimed. “We’re going to have a great time. I’m here with a group of talented people. It’s my first time here with you, let’s f—-ing get it!” 

On the stage, a large white heart and a boombox that displayed cool visuals—simple but cool. The real star of the night, however, was Miko’s effortless vocals that transitioned from sugary singing vocals to sensual rap bars. 

Her “corillo” of musicians didn’t stay behind.

In songs such as “Wiggy,” “tres tristes tragos,” and “curita,” the band delivered head-swaying jam sessions backed by deep bass beats, hard-hitting drums, and electric guitar riffs. 

During her set, Miko—who had no special guests on day one—also performed some of the biggest reggaeton titles that made her a household name: the Bad Bunny-assisted “Fina;” “ID” with Jowell y Randy; “Chulo” in collab with Bad Gyal and Tokischa; and her Bizarrap session “Young Miko: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 58.”  

“Coachella, I can’t thank you enough for having me here. What a beautiful vibe under the sun with all of you. We’re having a great time. This is good heat. From PR to the world, I’m Young Miko,” she said ahead of wrapping up her electrifying set with her Feid-assisted “Classy 101,” which earned her first Billboard Hot 100 entry last summer.
