To help you catch up, we compiled the best moments from the weekend including Kendrick’s debut of DAMN., DJ Khaled’s unbelievable guest-heavy spot and Gucci Mane’s return to the festival stage. Once you’re through with these, check out what celebrities wore to the first weekend of Coachella 2017.
DJ Khaled performed with Migos, 2 Chainz, Rick Ross & more
DJ Khaled must have broken the record with how many guests he brought out during his set at Coachella Sunday night. Khaled performed with Migos, 2 Chainz, Rick Ross, A$AP Ferg, French Montana, Swae Lee and Wale. Highlights included Ferg’s “Work” and “Shabba,” 2 Chainz’s “Birthday Song,” Rick Ross’s “Trap Trap Trap” and Migos’s “Bad and Boujee.”
Kendrick performed songs off ‘DAMN.’ for the first time
Just two days after the album dropped, Kendrick Lamar performed songs off DAMN. for some very lucky fans. His headline set began with the album’s Fox News segment then went into multiple tracks off the album, including “DNA.,” “GOD.” and closing up the show with “HUMBLE.”
He also brought out Travis Scott, Future and ScHoolboy Q
The Compton emcee performed “Goosebumps” with Travis Scott, and was Future’s hypeman for “Mask Off,” while ScHoolboy Q performed “THat Part.”
ScHoolboy Q brought out A$AP Rocky and Tyler, The Creator
Rocky and Tyler came out to perform “Telephone Calls,” their track from Cozy Tapes Vol. 1: Friends. Tyler’s night went downhill from there, however. When ScHoolboy Q’s set was abruptly cut, Tyler angrily stood in the crown waving his middle finger until he was escorted out by security.
Gucci Mane made his Coachella debut
Guwop played a mix of older tracks and newer ones off his latest album, Everybody Looking, and also brought out a myriad of guests to perform with — Rae Sremmurd with their collaborative”Black Beatles,” Lil Yachty who performed “1 Night,” Diddy who sang a medley of his biggest tracks, and Migos who performed “Bad and Boujee” for the second time that night. Rihanna, Travis Scott, The Weeknd, French Montana and Drake were all spotted backstage watching the Southern legend.
In other Coachella news, Drake accused a Coachella country club of racial profiling.
