In the latest episode of the New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce podcast, aired on April 17, NFL star Travis Kelce shared his exhilarating experiences at the recent Coachella music festival in Indio, California. The Kansas City Chiefs tight end described the event as "fun as hell," revealing his profound appreciation for live music and the vibrant festival atmosphere.

“I love live music, man, I absolutely love live music," Kelce expressed, reflecting on the diverse array of performances he witnessed. "I don’t get enough of it in my life. I really enjoy any event where you can see talents...

all these talented people in the world coming together." Kelce, who was spotted at the festival on April 13, emphasized the unique cultural blend that Coachella offers. “I just like to experience that type of stuff—like I love experiencing new cultures.

Coachella isn’t just about one genre of music. It's everything,” he noted, highlighting the festival’s eclectic mix.

New Musical Discoveries

The NFL player also shared his excitement about discovering new music acts.

“It was fun seeing a few new bands that I wasn’t that familiar with, and just became an absolute lover of their music because of how they performed, and how they captivated the crowd,” Kelce remarked. He was particularly impressed by The Bleachers and Jack Antonoff, who, according to him, "absolutely ripped it" with a dynamic set featuring multiple sax players, drummers, and guitarists.

One of his current favorite bands, Jungle, also performed, and Kelce praised their set, saying they “absolutely killed it” at the festival. Additionally, he mentioned his choice to enjoy the festival from the crowd's perspective rather than backstage, to fully immerse himself in the experience.

“I like to see it from the fans' perspective because I am, I’m a fan of the music, I’m a fan of live shows. I want to see it from the front of the stage,” he explained. Amidst the fun, Kelce and pop star Taylor Swift, who accompanied him, were not just casual attendees.

The couple was captured sharing a passionate kiss, enjoying the music and the moment together amid friends and fans. They attended performances by artists like Dom Dolla and Ice Spice, along with friends Sabrina Carpenter and Barry Keoghan, among others.

Jason Kelce, Travis's brother and podcast co-host, humorously noted the quick sell-out of their New Heights podcast hats after Taylor was seen wearing one. “We know who you went with, we saw the pictures," Jason teased, adding, "Sold out of the green hat real quick."
