Every year Coachella is known for having it’s own unique memorable music moments. Whether it’s catching local acts such as Haim, recent grammy winner Lorde, reunion acts like the much-anticipated OutKast set, surprise guests like Jay-Z, old-school punk bands like The Toy Dolls, or electronic artists such as Dillion Francis or Fat Boy Slim, Coachella goers always have a vast variety of musical experiences to fill their weekend with. Here’s a look at some of these performances up close and personal.
