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.
