It’s safe to say that this past weekend was one of the craziest in music history: California’s legendary Coachella festival spanned out for 3 days of rock/hip-hop/pop music madness! Whether you were watching the live stream, catching up via Twitter, or there IN PERSON, it was definitely a week to remember. Our friends at KROQ attended Coachella this year and have all the highlights for us, so let’s start rounding up the days…
Friday, April 13th
Probably the biggest act to headline the first night of the festival was Swedish House Mafia. Check out this clip of “Save The World” by the electro-house DJs and get your dance on!
Saturday, April 14th
Our personal highlight of Saturday night was iconic rockers Radiohead, especially lead Thom Yorke’s adorable ponytail that made the usually shy and demure singer appear loose and relaxed! The entire set was breathtaking, but we loved “Reckoner” the best: watch it above!
Sunday, April 15th
Lots of acts hit the stage for the last day of weekend 1 (Florence + The Machine, Calvin Harris & surprise guest Rihanna), but the most talked about was definitely Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s performance. Not only was it buzzworthy because Wiz Khalifa, 50 Cent, and Eminem took the stage, the real kicker was a hologram of the iconic rapper Tupac (who passed away in 1996) performing “Hail Mary” and “Ain’t Nothin’ Like A Gangsta Party“. The video of the, er, hologram is posted above: what do you think of bringing Tupac back to the stage?
