Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is one of North America’s most popular and fashionable music festivals. Held in the Californian desert over two long weekends, this year’s line-up included New Zealand’s own pop-funk princess, Kimbra.

Ahead of her second Coachella set, Shaun D Wilson tours the backstage artists’ area and talks to Kimbra about the festival, California, odd herbal tea, and appearing on the same bill as Flying Lotus and Steely Dan.
