Day One headliner Childish Gambino performed a 90 minute set, beginning his performance by telling he crowd, “this is not a concert. This is church.”

Gambino performed his hits including “Sober,” “Feels Like Summer,” and  “This Is America.”

He also paid tribute to musicians, Mac Miller and Nipsey Hussle, as well as his dad, Donald Glover, Sr., who died late last year. “I lost my dad this year. We lost Nipsey, we lost Mac [Miller],” an emotional Gambino told the crowd, before adding, “what I am starting to realize is, all we really have is memories.”

The group put on a great set and will not only be back for Weekend Two, but will also perform in Indio in between Coachella weekends at Chella.


A blaze broke out a little after 2 am in the camping area.  It was put out quickly by fire crews and no one was injured.
