The weekends of April 12 and 19 both kicked off a longstanding influential music festival. The festival consists of six days and over 100 artists on the roster. The three main headliners this year include Lana Del Rey, Tyler, the Creator, and Doja Cat.

Coachella is intended to highlight popular and growing artists out there. Over 125,000 people attend the festival over its two weekends. The revenue in 2019 made it to over 114 million dollars.

The six days are split into two weekends each year. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of the 12th and 19th each have their dedicated artists. There are around 50 artists per day. And each artist has a preplanned set time and location of either the main stages or desert stages.

Lana Del Rey took the stage both weekends on Friday at 11:20 and sang quite a few songs including “Summertime Sadness” and “West Coast.” Other artists followed, more noticeable ones including: Lil Uzi Vert, Deftones, and Sabrina Carpenter. Camila Cabello and Lana Del Rey performed Camila’s song “I Luv It” together during Del Rey’s set Friday.

“This is my girl. I have so much fun with her. I love this song to death. Thank you so much angel for coming to sing with me,” Lana Del Rey said to Cabello after their performance.

Saturday kicked off with Tyler, the Creator on the main stage. He played songs from his 2019 Igor album and others including “See You Again” and “Best Interest.” Other notable performances came from Blur, Ice Spice, Sublime, and No Doubt that day.

Sunday, Doja Cat showed up on the main stage with her 2023 Scarlet album among other songs like Need to Know and Streets. J Balvin, Bebe Rexha, and others played later that Sunday.

”The crowd could have been better for Blur but Kesha with Renee Rapp and Chappell Roan was great,” sophomore Devan Nagy said.

Although with attendance rates on the decline, Coachella is still standing strong. The performances are all over social media and striking up talk with people who enjoy music.
