Mason Ramsey, the yodeling Walmart 11-year-old taking the internet by storm headlined at Coachella ion Friday.
From internet sensation to headliner at one of the country's largest music festivals, Ramsey kicked-off the event by wowing concert-goers with his unique yodeling skills alongside DJ Whethan. Ramsey became a YouTube sensation when he was recorded yodeling in the aisles of Walmart in his hometown of Harrisburg, Illinois.
From Walmart, to The Ellen Show, Ramsey is taking the country by storm. The only thing he's missing is some lederhosen.

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is held every year in Indio, California. The multi-stage event draws thousands of people from all over the world, and showcases musical artists from nearly every genre—rock, india, EDM, and hip-hop—as well as art installations and sculptures. In 2017, Coachella grossed $114.7 in revenue and was attended by more than 250,000 people.
Since it first began in 1993 with a Pearl Jam concert, Coachella has blossomed into a diverse array of talent, setting up numerous stages with continuous line-ups of some of the world's most popular and up-and-coming artists. Concert-goers even have the option of camping at the site, making it a truly unique and artistic experience. In 2012, due to the surging popularity of camping, Coachella began offering convenient on-site facilities, including recycling, a general store, showers, mobile phone charging stations and an internet cafe with free WiFi.
