COACHELLA WEEKEND 1: GUESTS AND UNVEILINGS

A captive, tastemaker (and of course uniquely fashion-forward) audience in attendance, the Coachella stage hosted a myriad of world premiere music and performance debuts from several of the headlining stars.  

Lady Gaga used the opportunity of stepping in for Beyoncé to debut new music called “The Cure,” telling the crowd, "I love you guys so much," before adding, "I have been through so much in my life and I've seen so much. And you cure me every time with your love."

Lorde slowly peeled off new songs from her new soon-to-be-released album Melodrama, performing “Sober” at a nearby club gig and then unveiling “Homemade Dynamite” on the festival stage.  

But hip-hop truly had a moment at this year’s festival, with the culture’s biggest superstars showing up en force. DJ Khaled probably broke a record for the most guest stars to pop up on a set, because it looked like his daily Snap, with Migos, 2 Chainz, Rick RossA$AP Ferg, French Montana, Swae Lee and Wale plus Gucci Mane all rolling through.

Future Hendrix was on the playa too, and had it super lit, stunning the crowd with a surprise crash from the homie Drake for “Jumpman,” who also performed More Life tracks “Gyalchester,” and “Fake Love.” Migos and Ty Dolla $ign were also part of Future’s set, before he wandered over to King Kendrick’s stage later on.  

Kendrick Lamar made sure to keep this appearance memorable, performing his freshly unwrapped banger “DNA” from DAMN, along with “GOD” (“Aaaaaaah-Haaaaaaah!”) and the hit “HUMBLE.” He also brought out Travis Scott for “Goosebumps,” played hype-man for Future who crashed the set with “Mask Off” and featured TDE labelmate ScHoolboy Q doing “THat Part,” thereby capping a King Kendrick kickoff for the ages. Particularly with his album concurrently dominating every streaming situation as well the whole weekend—probably counts towards K Dot owning all of Coachella (mic drop).
