With each passing year, the festival seems to outdo itself with bigger headliners, more elaborate stages, and unforgettable performances. The 2024 edition of Coachella was no exception, with a lineup that had fans buzzing for months leading up to the event. Here is everything that went down at Coachella 2024.

Coachella 2024 Rundown

Here is a full rundown on the first two days of the festival:

Coachella Day 1

The first day of Coachella 2024 was filled with standout moments, from the emergence of new hashtags to a lineup of special guest appearances and Lana Del Rey’s eclectic headlining performance. Established acts such as Peso Pluma, Lil Uzi Vert, and Justice graced the stages. They were alongside rising stars like Chappell Roan, Chlöe, and ATEEZ, creating a diverse and memorable experience for festival-goers.

Lana Del Rey

Del Rey’s Coachella performance was nothing short of spectacular, beginning with her dramatic entrance on the back of a motorcycle. Special guest appearances by Jon Batiste, Jack Antonoff, and Billie Eilish added to the excitement. Eilish joined Del Rey for captivating duets of “Ocean Eyes” and “Video Games.” The 90-minute set featured stunning set design, mesmerizing hologram effects, Del Rey’s signature sultry vocals, and a touch of faded glamour. Del Rey even surprised the audience with some unexpected stripper pole twirling, rounding out an unforgettable show.

Lil Uzi Vert

The intensely charismatic rapper captivated the Coachella audience with his energetic performance on the festival’s main stage. Adorned with red glitter matching his fiery hair, he delivered raw and magnetic renditions of hits like “All My Friends Are Dead” and “I Do What I Want.” Shedding his billowing white shirt as he danced vigorously across the stage, he expressed his love for the audience mid-performance. This prompted an enthusiastic response. Even in the livestream, he sent love to his family. He did so particularly for his grandma, signing off affectionately as “your boo Symere.”

Peso Pluma

Peso Pluma kicked off night one of Coachella with a high-energy set. This was just before Lana Del Rey took the main stage. He started with a unique mask on, then ripped it off to reveal his iconic haircut. Throughout the performance, he brought out guests like Becky G, Junior H, Santa Fe Klan, and Arcángel for special collaborations. The set was a preview of his upcoming album, Éxodo, set to release in the summer. Pluma thanked the crowd and ended with a shoutout to Mexico.


Tinashe delivered a dynamic performance at the Mojave tent during sunset. She showcased her impressive choreography skills even on slower songs like “Uh Huh.” With her powerful vocals and simple lighting, she emphasized her talent as the main attraction. Engaging with the audience, she elevated herself on a raised portion of the stage to ensure everyone could see her performance. This allowed even those outside the tent to enjoy the show.


ATEEZ, the eight-member South Korean boy band, closed out Day 1 on the Sahara stage at Coachella. They definitely represented K-pop with their dynamic performance. They showcased their precise choreography and performed a setlist of 10 songs, including hits like “ARRIBA” and “BOUNCY (K-HOT CHILLI PEPPERS),” ending with a rock version of “Wonderland.” Rapper and songwriter Hongjoong reflected on their journey, expressing awe at their success since their early days practicing in a small studio. He marveled at the realization of performing at Coachella, emphasizing that dreams truly do come true.

Sabrina Carpenter

Sabrina Carpenter made her Coachella debut in a dazzling all-gold ensemble, shining in the setting sun with even her microphone adorned in crystals. Against a backdrop resembling a desert motel, Carpenter and her dancers enacted a narrative of a tumultuous relationship. She performed songs like “Tornado Warnings,” premiered her latest single “Espresso,” and delighted fans with her hit “Nonsense,” ending with festival-themed wordplay.


Deftones finally performed their cover of The Smiths’ “Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want” live for the first time, nearly two decades after recording it for their 2005 album B-Sides & Rarities. The performance took place on Friday night at Coachella’s Outdoor Stage, where they also played hits like “My Own Summer (Shove It)” and “Change (In the House of Flies).”

Coachella Day 2

Day two of Coachella 2024 brought a surge of energy, with temperatures soaring into the mid-90s and an enthusiastic crowd filling the grounds. The lineup featured a diverse array of artists, including headliner Tyler, The Creator, the reunited and lively No Doubt, Blur, Vampire Weekend, and surprise guest Paris Hilton, who joined Vampire Weekend onstage for a game of bag toss, delighting and slightly bewildering the audience.

Billie Eilish

Billie Eilish, alongside her brother and collaborator Finneas, hosted a lively club night and listening party on the Do Lab stage at Coachella. They debuted snippets of three new tracks from her upcoming album, “Hit Me Hard and Soft,” while the DJ played a mix of old favorites chosen by Eilish herself, including hits like 2Pac’s “California Love,” Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz’ “Get Low,” Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know,” and The Killers’ “Mr. Brightside.” The event had the vibe of a neighborhood block party, with Eilish reigning as the star host.

LE SSERAFIM took over the Sahara Tent on Saturday night at Coachella, bringing their feisty energy to the massive stage. Yunjin hyped up the crowd, asking if they were ready to dance, and the screams confirmed they were. The five-member girl group delivered a 10-song set filled with dance opportunities, including the live debut of their new song “1-800-hot-n-fun.” With lyrics inviting listeners to “hit my line,” it seems like LE SSERAFIM is gearing up for a hot and fun new era.

No Doubt and Olivia Rodrigo

Olivia Rodrigo surprised the Coachella crowd with a special duet alongside Gwen Stefani on No Doubt’s “Bathwater,” a song Rodrigo had previously named among her favorites. Dressed in a cropped tank top proclaiming her love for No Doubt, Rodrigo shared verses and choruses with Stefani, showcasing a playful dynamic on stage. Their chemistry was evident as they bantered during the performance, with Stefani affectionately referring to Rodrigo as “my little Vampire” at the end of the song. Rodrigo’s tribute to her musical inspirations continued with this memorable collaboration at Coachella, fitting seamlessly into her ongoing homage tour.


Grimes captivated the crowd in the expanded Sahara Tent with her striking presence, crouching atop the decks wearing an ornate mask and her signature long, blonde hair billowing in the desert breeze. She delivered heavy industrial electronic music accompanied by visuals of animated figures on the massive screens. However, around 30 minutes into the set, she encountered technical difficulties, prompting her to stop the music and address the issue candidly with the audience. Despite the setbacks, Grimes remained cheerful and continued to amp up the electronic vibes, though the technical glitches may have affected the tent’s energy. Nonetheless, the audience remained engaged, eager to see how the performance would unfold.

Ice Spice

The megastar rapper delivered a fiery performance at the Sahara stage, surrounded by a giant Ice Spice-styled balloon. With a compact and fast-paced set, she energized the crowd with hits like “Gangsta Boo,” “Barbie World,” and “Deli,” along with her latest single, “Think you the Sh– (Fart),” and a new track sampling Sean Paul’s “Gimme the Light.” A standout moment was when she shouted out her friend Taylor Swift, leading into a performance of “Karma,” though the audience couldn’t help but feel a hint of disappointment when Swift didn’t join her on stage.

Nelly Furtado

During Dom Dolla’s Sahara Tent closing show, Nelly Furtado took a tumble while performing their collaborative single “Eat Your Man.” Despite the fall, Furtado quickly recovered and continued singing without missing a beat. Showing professionalism and grace, she joked about the incident on Instagram afterward, stating that she “literally left it all on stage, including my blood,” in dedication to Dom Dolla.
