Sublime Reunite at Coachella with Jakob Nowell: Video + Setlist

Sublime’s surviving members — Bud Gaugh and Eric Wilson — reunited for a set at Coachella with original lead singer Bradley Nowell’s son, Jakob.

The band’s first public performance with Jakob went down at Coachella’s main stage beginning around 6:05pm local time on Saturday. The trio ran through Sublime’s biggest hits, including “Santeria,” “Wrong Way,” “Garden Grove,” “What I Got,” and “Doin’ Time.” Watch video of their performance below.

Sublime’s Coachella set with Jakob Nowell occurred four months after the late singer’s son first joined Wilson and Gaugh for a private benefit show in Los Angeles. Guagh and Wilson had previously formed Sublime with Rome in 2009 with singer Rome Ramirez, but Guagh left the band two years later. After Gaugh and Wilson performed with Nowell in December 2023, Sublime with Rome disbanded.

Discussing his decision to reunite Sublime with his later father’s bandmates, Jakob told Rolling Stone, “I look at it as like a custodial role. I’m not Sublime. My uncles Bud and Eric are Sublime. My dad never got to step on that stage, man. My dad never got to sing those songs in front of an audience that big, at Coachella, of people who adore him and his sound and his message. If you were a father, what would you want? And I know what I would want to have happen in that situation. So I have to do what I have to do.”


The rebooted Sublime will play several festival shows this year, including Pomona, California’s No Values Fest, Ocean City, Maryland’s Oceans Calling, and more. Get tickets to see Sublime here.
