The rising pop artist best known for her single “OctaHate” tells Jason and Billboard.com’s Tye Comer about her experience performing at the festival on Saturday afternoon, what sets Coachella apart from other festivals, debuting new songs (and getting flashed by a fan) during her set and watching Steely Dan with her dad at the festival. The guys also recount their festival experiences watching artists like Tame Impala, Perfume Genius, Cashmere Cat and Azealia Banks, and Weaver discusses her debut album, The Fool.
