Ellie Goulding compares Coachella to 'messy, muddy' U.K. festivals

By Gina DiFalco,

Ellie Goulding appeared on E!’s Chelsea Lately this week and spoke with Chelsea Handler about her recent performance at Coachella. The British singer compared it to “messy” U.K. festivals she has previously performed at.

The 27-year-old singer revealed she was actually sick when she performed her set, having caught something in South America. Despite having a “weird bug,” she said, “I held it together and nothing happened."

E! Online reports the “Beating Heart” singer also talked about festivals back home in the U.K.

"I don't know if anyone's been to a festival in the U.K., but it's very, very, very different experience,” she explained. “Coachella is beautiful, sunny, it's beautiful people...but festivals in England are really messy, muddy. I've had to stop my set before because it's been too wet and you just can't perform, so that's great."

Goulding also talked to Shine Yahoo right before her Coachella set and opened up about being asked to perform at the royal wedding in 2011 for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

“I think the party was a real reflection of who they are as a couple-they wanted to have the wedding exactly as they wanted it, nothing crazy,” she said. “It was pretty cool to be asked, though. Definitely one of the best nights of my life!”
