Most visitors to the Coachella Festival can boast of seeing the most popular music artists in America, during the music festival’s opening weekend. Visitors to the opening weekend of Coachella 2018 can make that same claim, however, they can also say that they got to see the Walmart yodeling kid.

Mason Ramsey, the 11-year-old YouTube sensation who has attracted clicks and views by the millions for his yodeling in the aisles of a Harrisburg, Illinois, Walmart, took the stage alongside DJ Whethan on Friday.

Whethan introduced Ramsey as the person who needed “no introduction,” a fact proved true by the explosion of applause and cheers as fans welcomed the yodeling kid to the stage:

yo @whethanmusic just brought out the yodel kid at coachella!! 😂

Fans weren’t the only ones caught up in the excitement of Ramsey’s performance, Justin Bieber got into the act as well:

Ramsey’s appearance at Coachella came about due to a tweet from DJ Whethan, as he told his followers to, “Stop saying I look like the walmart yodel kid:”

From that tweet, began the process which ended with Whethan inviting Ramsey to appear with him at the festival.

Ramsey announced that he was playing Coachella on Instagram:

Can’t wait to see California again! Hope y’all are ready cause we’re bringing the country to @coachella Will be on at 2:45 in the Sahara Tent with Whethan
