    Childish Gambino urged fans to put phones down as he headlined Coachella Valley Music Festival

    The 'This Is America' star told those who had gathered to watch his set at the music festival in Indio, California through their own eyes rather than through their screens as he admitted that the stage was his "church" and where he feels at "home".


    He told the crowd: "Put your phones down. This is not a concert, this is church. If you came here to hear your favourite song, you should go home and do that. If you want to come here to just take Instagram pictures and shit, you should go in the back and move right now. I want y'all to feel this shit. This is my church. I feel at home here."

    Childish Gambino - also known as Donald Glover - wowed the crowds with a brand new song as well as performing some of his biggest hits.

    He also took some time to reflect on loss, adding: "All we really have are memories at the end of the day. The problem with millennials is that we have too much date, we're too afraid to plant a tree we know we're not going to eat from. Some of y'all won't make it to next week. While we're here, feel something and pass it on."

    In an unexpected move, the 'Feels Like Summer' singer opened his set with a video montage of comments of both fans and those who weren't, which were collected during the festival. Whilst some were excited, with one saying, "I'm thankful to be here while he's creating art", others were less supportive.

    One said: "He's great at a lot of things, but a master of none."

    Whilst another shared: "Nobody's coming to Coachella to hear that."
