Watch Jay Z Perform With Nas At Coachella

The twentieth anniversary of Illmatic is less than a week away and Nas celebrated in style by performing his entire debut album from beginning to end at his Coachella performance. The only interlude from the album was when Nas was joined by former rival Jay Z to perform "Dead Presidents" and "Where I'm From." Diddy… More »

Coachella 2014: The 9 Best Things From Saturday

I'm not crying, I just have a little dust in my eyes. No, really: Coachella's second day was largely engulfed by a more manageable (but still annoying!) version of the dust storm that turned last year's event hazardous. That said, I might actually be crying too because I missed the historic alignment of Nas and… More »

Coachella 2014: The 8 Best Things From Friday

The first day of Coachella brought us the first Outkast concert since 2006, the fourth Replacements concert since 1991, and the first time Haim was on the festival grounds legally. (According to Este, the sisters have been hopping the fence since 2004.) It spawned thoughts in my brain such as "Wow, Chromeo is now famou… More »

Watch OutKast Reunite At Coachella

Looking back, it's hard to believe that there was ever any doubt that an OutKast reunion would happen. When the rumor mill started up last fall, it seemed like a pipe dream but here we are a few months later and OutKast is headlining over 40 festivals this year in their first tour since the… More »

Watch A$AP Rocky Debut A New Song At Ferg’s Coachella Set

Towards the end of a Coachella set that saw A$AP Ferg run through album cuts like "Cocaine Castle" and "Shabba," he was joined on stage by A$AP Rocky who debuted a new track. The song starts off with a whispered intro ("When the real niggas die/fake niggas gonna multiply") before escalating into hazy, bass-heavy posturing… More »

Watch Coachella 2014 Here All Weekend

Coachella seems like an especially dangerous place for your personal brand this year -- how can you possibly stay relevant when everyone around you is either getting paid to be there, crash dieting, or just being a boring, basic bitch? Thankfully, Coachella will be livestreaming all of the action so that you don't have to… More »

Coachella 2014 Schedule Revealed; Julian Casablancas And Pixies Added To Lineup

The first of this year's two Coachella weekends kicks off the day after tomorrow, and the festival has just revealed its schedule for this year. As usual, with any six-stage show, there are going to be some heartbreaking choices in there for just about anyone. The Replacements are playing at the same time as Brya… More »

Celebs Get Paid To Attend Coachella … But Who Will Underwrite Aaron Paul?

Every year hard-working people pay hundreds of dollars to attend Coachella while journalists like myself get to go for free. (Hey, I'm hard-working too!) But even my free ride looks unglamorous compared to the deal some celebrities are getting to be seen at the fest. According to The New York Daily News, there's a competitive… More »

The Coachella Diet Is A Thing

In an effort to look like they're not trying at all by trying too hard, Coachella attendees and fitness trainers Kirsten Potenza and Cristina Peerenboom (who created Pound, a workout regimen where you use drumsticks instead of weights) have come up with "Cut By Coachella," a 30-day diet that aims to make sure that you… More »

The Coachella 2014 Poster Font Size Hunger Games

When the Coachella Festival, the first of America's big summer festivals, announces its lineup every year, those of us who don't go to the festival every year -- and, presumably, some of those who do -- like to play a little game called Font Size Confusion. Coachella has kept the same format for its poster… More »

OutKast To Reunite At Coachella?

This is all purely speculative, but several sources have reportedly told Billboard that OutKast, arguably the greatest rap duo of all time, might reunite to headline next year's Coachella festival. According to various sources, the group has at least been in talks to play the festival and possibly to do some other festivals next summer. More »

Watch Jimmy Kimmel Punk Hipster Poseurs At Coachella

The day I realized I was on the slow and steady path to becoming an adult was when I stopped feeling shame about not knowing what someone else was talking about. Whether it's a book, or a band, or whatever falls into your wheelhouse of Things You Usually Know About, any conversation you're going to… More »

Coachella 2013 Weekend 2: Sunday’s 5 Best Things

The common refrain about Coachella dictates: "It's not about the music, man, it's about the festival experience." With the dance/sex tents in full swing, dozens of corporate-sponsored hideaways at every corner offering shade and mild distraction in exchange for a few minutes of direct advertising access to your brain, and the untamed wilderness of the… More »

Watch Danny Brown Debut “Dope Song” At Coachella

Danny Brown was one of the sweatiest performers I saw at Coachella, mostly because of his unrelenting rubbery energy in the mid-day blazing sun. During his set, he gave a taste of what's to come from his upcoming LP Old. One of those songs is the particularly aggressive "Dope Song," further proof that he ca… More »

Watch RZA Perform With James Blake At Coachella

Most of Coachella's big surprises happen on the first weekend; by the time the fest gets to its second weekend, everyone knows which guest appearances to expect. But James Blake saved one unbelievably silly surprise for weekend two, bringing out Wu-Tang mastermind RZA to perform "Take A Fall For Me," their collab from Blake's new… More »

Coachella 2013 Weekend 2: Friday’s 5 Best Things

Peel back the surface and look past the picturesque valley backdrop. Forget about the gorgeous, sun-kissed young folk wearing next to nothing (or, on occasion, nothing). Go ahead and ignore the ridiculous hippie art splattering the landscape. Once you get past everything that suggests Coachella is a legit wonderful place, reality sets in. You're i… More »

Watch Earl Sweatshirt’s Coachella Set

We saw Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt at SXSW back in March, and he made his Coachella debut on Friday night sporting tie-dye and a bucket hat. Flying Lotus (aka Captain Murphy) DJ'd, and the set included cameos from Earl's collaborators Domo Genesis, Vince Staples, and Tyler, The Creator. Now, you can hear Earl shout, "WHAT… More »

Watch Modest Mouse Play New Song “Be Brave” At Coachella

It's been six years since the last Modest Mouse album and four years since the last LP, and now the band might finally have some new music ready to go. At Coachella over the weekend, they played a sharp and clangorous new one called "Be Brave." Judging by the live video, the song shows the… More »
