The Avalanches' first set at Coachella was hailed as one of the 10 best performances by the Los Angeles Times, which observed, "Not many acts can use Coachella's gigantic platform to make its debut in the U.S. But that's just what the Avalanches did when the reclusive Australian outfit...brought its jubilant disco-pop to a tightly packed Mojave tent."
Rolling Stone named The Avalanches as one of the "15 Best Things" at Coachella's second weekend, observing, ""[The Avalanches] sent the crowd bouncing from their first moments behind their instruments and sequencers...They were joined by a pair of charismatic vocalists." USA Today said, "One of the most energetic responses of the day was to the Avalanches" and praised the band's "exciting new material."
