It was a great time, save for the inclement weather on Friday afternoon/evening and some particularly fierce winds.
The best sets of the weekend came from (predictably) Radiohead, Jimmy Cliff & Tim Armstrong, Pulp, Madness, Refused, Gary Clark Jr., Explosions in the Sky, Bon Iver, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Buzzcocks, Squeeze, Manchester Orchestra, Kasabian, At the Drive-In, Seun Kuti & Egypt 80, Wild Flag, Le Butcherettes, Gardens & Villa, & Gotye.
Oh, and Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg’s All-Star Hip Hop Jam set, featuring surprise guests Warren G., Tupac (via hologram), Eminem (in the flesh), Wiz Khalifa and 50 Cent was very entertaining, and led by a full in-house band.
But enough words – Coachella is about the experience, so enjoy a photo gallery & a slew of videos of some of our top moments of the weekend.
