If Weekend 1 is where they work the kinks out, Weekend 2 is when everything goes seemingly smooth. However, the surprise guests that kept coming last weekend on days two and three for the most part, fell off in weekend two. With a majority of the acts being the same as last weekend most of the performances were carbon copies.
One band that certainly had a better time at Weekend 2 was Radiohead. After last weekends technical difficulties, the band performed without a hitch and did not have the leave the stage at all during their set.
Earlier in the day, Travis Scott again begged the audience to form a mosh pit and even said it was OK to fight, while he played his career spanning set list. To further get the crowd going, Scott rode around on a giant mechanical eagle. Why? Because, why not?
Day two saw a slew of special guests during one performance but for most of the day the acts performed by themselves.
Future, who brought out Drake, Ty Dolla $Sign and Migos last week performed his set completely solo.
Martin Garrix debuted a new song featuring Troye Sivan during his set on Saturday, Sivan joined Garrix on stage to perform the new ballad.
Gucci Mane brought out more surprise guests this weekend performing with Sean “Diddy” Combs, Rae Sremmurd, Lil Yachty, Migos, 50 Cent, Chief Keef, A$AP Rocky and Playboi Carti.

What started with technically difficulties on night one ended with surprise appearances made by many on days two and three. Coachella’s first weekend started off slow but certainly finished strong!
Day One included performances by Big Gigantic, Oh Wonder, The XX, and Mac Miller. Then at 9:40pm Travis Scott took the stage with a mix of hits like “Pick Up the Phone” and mixtape cuts “Upper Echelon”. Using the jumbotron and stage props, Scott also encouraged the first day crowd to rage, using a few choice words to get the sentiment across.
Night One headliners, Radiohead had some technical difficulties that seemingly plagued them throughout their entire set. As a reward for putting up with the issues Radiohead played a hit they haven’t played in a (long) while, “Creep”. Though the closed the main stage, night one kept going with Dillion Francis bringing G-Eazy out for their new song “Say Less” and D.R.A.M was still going at nearly 1 am.
Day Two saw many surprise guests (perhaps to make up for the lack of guests day one?). Mura Masa brought out Charli XCX for “1 Night” and A$AP Rocky for “Love$ick”. Future made his Coachella debut one to remember by not only bringing out Ty Dolla $ign for his opener “Blasé” but he also brought out Migos and Drake, who each performed their own set within his set.

With Coachella exactly a month a way it means Festival Season is about to start and soon you may find yourself at an event where a mosh pit breaks out. Now, there’s nothing like thumping bass and a screaming lead singer, or being part of a mosh pit with a pack of other crazed fans. But for the uninitiated, it can be intimidating – and how are you supposed to know what to do? It’s not like you can stop to ask the other person next to you what’s going on. Moshing has traditionally been a learn-as-you-go sport, but no longer! Just take a look at the guide below and you’ll be a seasoned veteran in no time.
0. Don’t be a jerk. Most of the other rules go back to this one in some way or another.
