Weekend one of Coachella is finally complete and it was one to remember. The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is an annual music and arts festival held in Indio, California. The festival features many genres of music in one spot. Past performers include Drake, Jay Z, Kanye West and Tyler The Creator. A few years ago, Snoop brought out a Tupac hologram with Dr. Dre, sealing his spot in Coachella history.
Each year is full of surprises as artists bring out labelmates and friends to join them on stage – this year was no different. A$AP Rock kicked the festival off on Friday by bringing out Kanye West. Kanye tried to rapped a portion of “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1.” Not even 30 seconds in, his mic randomly was silenced since Rocky was over his time. No problem though, the crowd rapped the song for Ye. Later on that night, Kanye and Tyler raced each other on foot. Check that out below.
Saturday night’s headliner, Ice Cube gave a N.W.A. reunion -minus Dr. Dre. With
MC Ren and DJ Yella by his side, he performed “Straight Outta Compton” and “F**k tha Police.” Cube’s son O’Shea Jackson Jr., Common, and Snoop Dogg joined in for a rendition of “Go to Church” and “The Next Episode.” Plus a rare sighting of Westside Connection. Anderson.Pak brought out T.I. to perform a new track.
Finally, Rihanna shocked fans (Taylor Swift and her squad included,) when she closed out Calvin Harris’ set by performing their mega smash “We Found Love” on Sunday night. Check out all the videos below. Weekend two, you have some huge shoes to fill!
