Most of us know the 46 year old actor for his roles on the big screen but have no idea about his love for music. Prior to becoming a Hollywood star, he use to work in nightclubs as a DJ, using the nickname “Big Driis”.

Don’t get it twisted, he is not just a small town DJ from back in the day. Some of his artistic and DJ credits include: co-producing and performing on the intro to Jay-Z’s album American Gangster (2007); he DJ’ed at the 2007 NBA All Star parties at The Venetian and Ice House Lounge in Las Vegas; in 2009 he released his EP High Class Problems Vol. 1; in 2014, he produced K. Michelle’s “The Rebellious Soul Musical”; in November 2015, Elba opened for Madonna during her Rebel Heart Tour in Berlin, Germany and he’s featured on the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis album This Unruly Mess I’ve Made (2016).

Coachella will not be the first music festival Idris has performed at as a DJ – he also previously plied his trade at England’s Glastonbury festival.
