Scenes From Coachella ’11: Kanye & More From Sunday

By brandon / April 18, 2011

Sunday at Indio featured CSS, Delorean, HEALTH, Lightning Bolt, OFF!, the Strokes, a riot-free Death From Above 1979, MEN, Twin Shadow, Wiz Khalifa, and others, but it seems folks were largely focused on who Kanye may or may not bring on stage with him for his festival closing set. Justin Vernon came along for the ride, as did a pack of dancers, but it turns out the main “special guest” — no Nicki, no Jay-Z, no Rihanna — was West himself. Which is maybe the boldest, most refreshing, expectation stomping move the guy’s made in a while. Photos by Graeme Flegenheimer. Take a look.
