Day Two of Weekend One of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is in the books. Here are some highlights from the fest’s second day.
Kenny G performed. No seriously.
He played the sax during Chon’s Mojave tent set and, of course, it was quite the hit with the fest.

Weezer had some guests
The band, who headlined the second Coachella fest waaaaaay back in 2001 brought out Chilli to perform “No Scrubs”:
But wait, there’s more! Weezer also brought out Tears for Fears for “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”:
Take it in!!
It’s easy to get caught up in the music, parties, food, crowds, and everything else that comes about during Coachella, but just take a moment to take in just how beautiful the Empire Polo Fields are this time of year.
Billie Eilish drew a huge crowd
Despite only having one album, the singer’s set was highly anticipated at Coachella. As Billboard noted, “diehard fans and curious onlookers alike camped out for Eilish way before her assigned set time. The crowd quickly began to fill the Outdoor Theatre stage and spilled over to the festival’s main stage, nearly hindering the space meant for upcoming headliners Tame Impala.” In addition, “throughout the festival, there were talks among industry insiders who alleged that other artists did not want Eilish to conflict with their set times.”
And, even though her set got started about 30 minutes late, Eilish delivered a well-received performance, at one point telling the crowd, “I don’t deserve this at all,” which was folled by a roar of disagreement from the thousands watching.
Tame Impala had all the lasers
The headliners had quite the laser show.
So many lasers.

J Balvin had twerking clouds, a duck on wheels, and, well, this…
