‘Yodelling Kid’ Mason Ramsey made a surprise appearance at Coachella Festival yesterday (April 13). Check out clips below.
Ramsey, from Golconda, Illinois, became a viral sensation last week after a video emerged of the youngster singing in his local Walmart store. The clip gained enormous popularity, spawning countless memes and fan spoofs.
Yesterday, reports claimed that Ramsey would join Whethan at Coachella. The newcomer producer had hinted at the appearance after fans noticed a similarity between the two.
After Ramsey accepted the invite to be Whethan’s guest, the Walmart yodeler took to the stage in front of a huge crowd of screaming fans.

“From Walmart to Coachella, I see you yodel boy,” one fan tweeted from the crowd. Another said: “the yodel kid performed at coachella, my life is complete”.
Some weren’t so impressed, however. “Walmart Yodel kid is 100% dead serious playing Coachella and I’m retiring from music,” a user posted.
One fan even spotted Ramsey on the plane:
