Hidden amidst the massive roster of big-name pop acts and well-regarded indie bands for this year’s Coachella Valley Arts and Music Festival was a name that might have seemed out of place to most music fans – Idris Elba.

The “Luther” star, and People’s reigning “Sexiest Man Alive,” will make his Coachella debut as a DJ this year, hitting the stage on Saturday of both weekends.

While it’s the lesser-known of his creative endeavors, the 46-year-old, who performs under the name DJ Big Driis, has been hopping behind the decks for decades now, having started DJing when he was still a teen.

Elba is also set to play a struggling DJ and “eternal bachelor” in his upcoming Netflix sitcom, “Turn Up Charlie,” who’s forced to make ends meet by working as a manny to his much more successful friend’s school-aged daughter.

This year’s Coachella takes place the weekends of April 12-14 and April 19-21. Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino and Tame Impala are set to headline. Nigeria’s Burna Boy and Mr Eazi also made the list of performers at the event.
