Coachella 2014: Highlights from Weekend One

coachella-2014

Hands up if you’d rather be at Coachella! We don’t know about you girls but our Instagram feed is packed with photographs of palm trees, pool parties and blurry stages. As you can imagine, a lot went down on the first weekend of our favorite music festival – Bollywood vibes with Bombay Bicycle Club; Lorde’s Coachella Debut; an Outkast Reunion; Kardashian spotting; Beyoncé and Solange Knowles being the true divas that they are; Jay Z’s surprise appearance; and Pharrell proving yet again, that he is king. Here is the low-down:

 

Outkast Came Back With A Bang (Only For A Night)…

Talk about a blast from the past, eh? Our favorite rap duo from the 90’s came together to grace the stage at Coachella to celebrate twenty years in the music industry (they released their first album in 1994). Belting out two dozen memorable hits like “Hey Ya”, “Ms Jackson” and “The Way You Move”, they had the crowd jumping for joy. “We just want to know one thing – are you having a good time?” asked Big Boi – girl, you should have seen the crowd roar.

Lorde Owned The Outdoor Stage…

Lorde

If you haven’t heard it already, the first thing you have to do after finishing this post is to head on over to YouTube and listen to “Royals” by Lorde. Like us, you will fall head over heels in love with her mesmerizing voice and quirky lyrics. On Saturday night, this cute crooner made her Coachella debut with some brilliant tracks from her first LP including “Royals”, “Tennis Court”, “Ribs” and “Team”. Can you believe that she’s only 17? You go girl!

Our Favorite Power Couple Showed Up…

Whilst Solange Knowles has been doing rounds of music festivals to support her “True” EP, we love that Beyoncé showed up on stage and danced with her sister during the finale of “Losing You”. Hubby Jay Z showed up a little after midnight when he was welcome on stage by Nas to perform their smashing single from 1996, “Dead Presidents II”. Best surprise ever?!

Jungle Happenings…

Paris Hitlon

Over at Empire of the Sun, the crowd had a blast with their inflatable animals as the music duo played one electronic delight after another. We spotted blow-up zebras, sharks, turtles and flamingoes, amongst other wild things. If you looked closely, you may have seen Miss Hilton having the time of her life with flowers in her hair and her hands in the air.

Pharrell Made Us Happy…

This man is on a roll and it looks like he isn’t slowing down anytime soon! He started with his recent smash hits – “Come Get It Bae” and “Lose Yourself to Dance”, before throwing back to “Frontin’”. If you thought that was the best part of his set, think again. Soon after, Nelly joined him on stage for a rendition of “Hot in Here” and then good ol’ Snoop Dog joined the party for “Drop It Like It’s Hot”. As if that wasn’t star-studded enough, Gwen Stefani belted our “Hollaback Girl” like a true superstar. Yes, we went B-A-N-A-N-A-S.

Celebrities Galore (Obvs!)

Kendall Kylie

The Kardashian sisters are known for making the world their runway, and the youngest of the lot lived up to this on the first weekend of Coachella. It was difficult to miss Kendal and Kylie Jenner in their grunge-meets-hippie ensembles which featured a lot of black, a lot of textures and a lot of embellishments.

selena gomez

The ever-gorgeous Selena Gomez made an appearance too, channeling her inner bohemian babe in a white crochet maxi dress, a floppy hat and a shiny bindi. We heard she partied extra hard at the festival!

And how fabulous did Sienna Miller look in a laid back white ensemble, hanging out with the stunning model sisters who are Poppy and Cara Delevingne? She nailed Coachella-cool like a pro!
