Week one of Coachella Music Festival in Indio, Calif. has finally come to an end, and it didn’t disappoint. Feature artists like Outkast, Pharrell, Arcade Fire, Nas, and Chance the Rapper took the stage, as they performed to hundreds of thousands of screaming fans. But they weren’t alone.
To kick things off, Jay-Z and P.Diddy joined Nas as surprise guests during his show. And where there’s Jay-Z, there’s Beyonce. She joined her sister on set for a dance number and solo for the song “Losing You.” If that weren’t enough, Justin Beiber was called on stage by Chance the Rapper, and had a Micheal Jackson-style dance off with Chance. Meanwhile, Jhene Aiko got a surprise visit from Drake and Childish Gambino as they performed their most recent collaborations with her. If that weren’t enough, Nelly, Snoop Dogg, Gwen Stefani, and Busta Rhymes were crashing the party on Pharrell’s set. Pharrell’s stage was also taken over by Tyler the Creator and Diplo. Last but not least, Mary J. Blige teamed up with Disclosure to sing a number.
What a mouthful.
Coachella music festival has become an increasingly popular festival in America, bringing fans from around the country and around the globe to its gates. Celebrities have even started to take a great interest, making Coachella the “it” thing to do if you’re famous. Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Selene Gomez, Lindsey Lohan, Vanessa Hudgens, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Katy Perry were among many other celebrities who Instagrammed photos during the festival. Coachella’s obscure, and free-flowing sense of independence and style could be one reason as to why so many celebrities, and people flock to the event.

Arguably the best part about Coachella, and most interesting, is that it doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from, you’re part of something unifying, and bigger than yourself. People from different cultures and backgrounds, with a wide range of beliefs, are able to come together and share a life-changing experience.
