Coachella today is one of the biggest and the most profitable music and arts festivals in the USA. It started 16 years ago, even tough during the first time organisers lost nearly one million and almost bankrupted its promoters, it have become one of the most successful music and arts festivals in the world. Massive and diverse line-up brings nearly 100 000 people each weekend to Indio, CA and more than 160 acts are performing this year.

The festival attracts many different people including all celebrities, fashion divas and everyone who paid over 400$ for a ticket to this constant fashion show, musical heaven and the hottest parties outside the festival. The whole world is watching now and social media has made a huge impact to festival. Everyone who is going to festival is responsible for that constant stream (or even spam) of Coachella updates on our social media platforms that runs way longer than the festival lasts.

This year headliners are AC/DC, Drake, Jack White, Florence and the Machine and many more.
Have a look at some of the performances below.

THE WEEKND

Canadian R&B and electronic music artist The Weeknd highlighted the Saturday night by the most anticipated show of the festival. He started his set by one of the most successful hits High For This following other songs from his mixtapes and the latest album Kiss Land.
The Weeknd proved that he definitely belongs to the biggest stages and can easily compete with the main headliners of any music festival.

AZEALIA BANKS

One of the most bad-ass musicians in todays music industry is definitely Azealia Banks. Many different controversies during her career created a huge crowd of haters on social media that are focusing on her difficult personality rather than on her talent and her creative music catalogue which is already out. However, after her second appearance at Coachella's festival it is clear that many of the haters will keep it silent. 

Azealia Banks opened the festival with the 45 minute set with songs from her debut album Broke With  Expensive Taste and from her 1991 EP.  She was singing and rapping live together with her band, DJ and two dancers at the stage behind the American flag. Alongside with rapping and singing she dances at the same time and definitely kills a show. The crowd went crazy during Ice Princess, Yung Rapunxel and mostly 212.
