The 8 Best Moments Of Coachella 2015 Saturday

If this year’s Coachella had an off day, it was Saturday. Of the festival’s three headliners, Saturday night top draw Jack White is probably the least exciting, though he’s still an electric presence with a deep catalog. The festival’s organizers seemed to sense this, booking White to play second-to-last on the big stage and throwing the Weeknd into the de facto headliner spot. but Abel Tesfaye, for all his strengths, isn’t ready to hold down a spot like that; he looked tiny and outmatched. (Also, why does he keep telling people to jump? Has he heard what kind of music he makes?) Scheduling weirdness meant that you were definitely going to miss a few things that you really wanted to see, while there was an hours-long stretch in the afternoon without anything much that I wanted to see. (This was the day that big main-stage spots went to chumps like Hozier.) Still, an off day at this festival is still a day that you get to see Run The Jewels, Swans, Father John Misty, FKA twigs, Perfume Genius, and Bad Religion. An off-day is not that off. Here are eight great moments from yesterday’s throwdown.
