Coachella Festival does not impress Liam Gallagher.

Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is now one of the largest, most profitable, and most popular music festivals in the United States and worldwide. Over 120,000 people have already attended the first weekend of the festival’s 2023 edition.

Despite its success, Gallagher called the festival “pathetic.”

Gallagher previously performed at the annual Indio Music Festival with his former Oasis bandmates. However, in a tweet on Tuesday, the frontman called out the festival.

A fan mentioned him in a tweet about their disappointment with Frank Ocean’s performance. The user requested that the musician headline Coachella Festival in honor of the injured musician and demonstrate “how it is done.”

Rather than agreeing, Gallagher responded by calling Coachella a “pathetic festival.”

Another Twitter user reminded him that he used to be the show’s host, but Gallagher responded:

“Never wouldn’t catch me at an establishment like that.”

Ocean’s performance was criticized because he began late and ended early due to an ankle injury. According to his team, the health issue prompted them to make last-minute production changes.

The Oasis AI album “AISIS” recently presented the band’s songs but used AI instead. It mimics the Gallagher brothers’ sound and uses AI vocals instead of the original singer’s voice.

The band Breezer said:

“AISIS is an alternate reality concept album where the band’s 95-97 line-up continued to write music, or perhaps all got together years later to write a record akin to the first 3 albums, and only now has the master DAT tape from that session surfaced,”

Some musicians were dissatisfied with the AI versions of their music. On the other hand, Gallagher endorsed AISIS and even stated that the album’s title track is better than anything else.

Oasis was formed in 1991 in Manchester by the Gallagher brothers, Paul “Bonehead” Arthurs, Paul “Guigsy” McGuigan, and Tony McCarroll. The band enjoyed fame but promptly flopped when its lowest-selling album was released in 2000.

Oasis’ relationship was also tested when the Gallagher brothers got into a huge fight, prompting Noel to leave the band.

The band officially disbanded in 2009, but Gallagher mentioned a reunion. Noel also stated that he wishes his brother would call him for a reunion, despite knowing he will not.
