A variety of festival-goers and businesses did not miss out on this massively awaited festival, and the performing artists came ready to give fans a good time.
Among the many awaited acts, there were a couple of artists that created the most buzz. Festival-goers were ecstatic to see their faves, and this round of performances only fueled more excitement for the second weekend that was to come.
Billie Eilish was one of the artists the crowd of attendees was anxious to see. Though her set was delayed by thirty minutes, Eilish did not disappoint and fans made an impressive show of keeping up with the singer in terms of lyrics, even though her album When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? was released just two weeks before her performance.
Childish Gambino did not disappoint. Fans were glad to see the artist give a huge performance on stage, which also came with a one-hour film starring Rihanna.
Rico Nasty’s DJ Miles got the crowd hyped and ready before she performed to the crowd of festival-goers. Her variety of tracks included “Old Town Road”.
Rapper YG used his time on the Coachella stage to remember the late rapper and advocate Nipsey Hussle. Before his set, YG played a video of Nipsey talking, and then performed his set wearing a black vest with an artistic image of Nipsey on the back.
Puerto Rican artist Bad Bunny gave an explosive performance on the Coachella stage, making fans go nuts when he invited fellow artist friend and collaborator J Balvin onto the stage. The duo performed their smash hit with Cardi B “I Like It”, among other songs, and Bad Bunny ended his set with gratitude and a few words for the Latino community.
Though these are only a few of the huge artists to hit the Coachella stage, the weekend as a whole showed how music can bring so many people together. It was a massive celebration of music, culture, and the arts. With acts that did not disappoint, this brought more excitement and curiosity for what the next weekend would bring.
