Are we just going to ignore the fact that Idris Elba is a dj in his spare time and is on the coachella line up??

That’s right: None other than Idris Elba from The Wire, The Office and Luther will be performing a DJ set at the music festival. It turns out the well-known actor is also a DJ in his spare time and he’s been doing it since he was 14 years old!
“My uncle was a DJ and he used to do weddings and christenings, and basically I was his box boy,” Elba told Mixmag, a British electronic dance and clubbing magazine.
