Lana Del Ray calls out manager who quit before Coachella 2024

Lana Del Ray had a lot to say before ending her Coachella set on Saturday, April 13, at the end of the 2024 music festival’s first weekend.

Del Rey, 38, thanked all the collaborators who performed with her onstage through the weekend, Billie Eilish, Jack Antonoff and Jon Batiste, including her band members and everyone else who played a role in bringing the stage show successful.


The singer also didn’t miss the chance to subtly call out her former tour manager who allegedly “quit for no reason after 15 years” after he was “butt hurt” over her getting 10 bikes “for free” from stunt coordinator Wally Crowder “and randomly decided he was more of a stage designer than a tour manager.”

While Del Rey did not clearly name drop the manager, she did give hints that the message was meant for someone named Pete.

“Never got a phone call probably never will. Still grateful for the 15 years though,” the singer shared in an Instagram post on Wednesday, April 17.

“No worries — 37 days was more than enough time to put together an entire headlining set all by ourselves. Not stressful at all.”

She also thanked manager Emily Holt for “stepping up” in and “f—king killed it with grace.”

She added, “Thank you to my managers Ben and Ed for making me laugh the entire way through everything for my whole freaking life even though none of it ever makes any sense. PS please send me an email If you decide to quit this year — 15 years is a long time for us too.”

“It was fun,” Del Rey said of the Coachella performance. “I’ll see you again real soon.”
