@ Coachella

Just East of Palm Springs California is held the world famous music festival Coachella, where celebrities, rockstars, influencers and fans gather to experience two weekends of pure music magic. This year's lineup boasts an eclectic array of talent, featuring pop sensations like Lana Del Rey, Doja Cat, Blur, Shakira, and Anderson Paak. Notably, the festival also hosts an impressive lineup of Asian Pop stars for the first time since Blackpink, including Le SSerafim, 88rising, and ATEEZ.


The inaugural weekend of Coachella 2024 was a tapestry of surprises and collaborations that left audiences electrified. Lana Del Ray surprised the audience and brought Billie Eilish on stage renditions of Eilish’s ‘Ocean Eyes’ and Del Ray’s ‘Video Games’. Shakira appeared for the first time ever on the stage of Coachella along with DJ Bizzarap to announce her upcoming world tour. A$AP Rocky and Tyler, the Creator, joined forces to deliver an explosive performance of "Potato Salad," while Olivia Rodrigo, channeling Gwen Stefani's iconic style, teamed up with No Doubt for a rendition of "Bathwater."


Over at the mainstage, Bebe Rexha surprised fans by bringing out the legendary David Guetta during her set, treating the audience to an exhilarating performance of "I'm Good" and "One in a Million." Meanwhile, Will Smith made a memorable cameo, donning his Men In Black persona during J Balvin's set, adding a touch of Hollywood magic to the festivities. Doja Cat brought the first weekend to a climactic close, captivating the audience with a dynamic performance alongside 21 Savage, Teezo Touchdown, and A$AP Rocky.


Marked not only by incredible performances, the festival is a playground for celebrities and influencers to show off their best festival outfits. Under the desert sky, a revival of bohemian chic and western-inspired attire dominated the scene, offering a nostalgic nod to the essence of hipster culture. From Taylor Swift's fringed jackets and cowboy hats to bohemian-chic ensembles straight from the latest Chloé Fall-Winter 2024 collection, the festival's fashion landscape epitomized a return to natural beauty, perfectly aligned with the spirit of summer.


As the first weekend draws to a close, anticipation mounts for the upcoming finale, promising even more headline acts and unexpected delights. Coachella 2024 continues to captivate and inspire, reaffirming its status as the pinnacle of musical and cultural exploration.
