Despacio’s Sound System to Level Coachella 2016

One of the best sound systems in the WORLD is heading to the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April.


You probably saw this at the bottom of the Coachella lineup. 2manydj’s John Klett, David and Stephen Dawaele along with LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy came together to create Despacio. It’s a monstrous masterpiece of sound: a 50,000 watt sound system. Despacio is made up of seven 11.5-feet tall speaker stacks. It’s not yet known if Despacio will take over the Yuma tent, but it seems like it would be the best setting for that ear-shattering sound.

Take a look at this interview with The Vinyl Factory on YouTube to get an up close look at Despacio ahead of Coachella!

I can’t wait to hear the sounds coming from Despacio in April! See you there for weekend 2.
