Coachella, one of the world’s most popular music festivals kicked off this weekend after a gap of almost two years. Thousands of music lovers and pop stars are expected to be part of the concert in the Californian desert this spring season.

Coachella music festival is being held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. The place which is a small town in the Coachella Valley of the Colorado desert is about a three-hour drive from the city of Los Angeles.

Pabllo Vittar was at the Festival Estéreo Picnic 2022 in Colombia this week. Last month Vittar performed at Lollapalooza in Chile. Vittar recently premiered a reality show, Queen stars Brasil that he hosts for the HBO Max platform.

Why did Vittar choose a masculine stage name?

Vittar’s music is considered to be the “unofficial anthems for Brazil’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community” and he is recognized widely as a voice representing them.

Vittar disclosed that he chose a stage name that is masculine as he wanted to be true to the public. He acts like a woman on the stage as he is not transgender. He has a more typical masculine gender expression in his private life.

Vittar answered a question about “who is Pabllo Vittar”, saying, “Pabllo Vittar is a boy. Who is a girl. Who has no gender. Who is not afraid. Who prefers a thousand times to be on a stage than anywhere else in the world.”
