Photos & Words | Coachella

Yesterday was day one of Coachella, and Uphoric has got you covered from the utter epicness that this festival is. Coachella boasts everything from gorgeous views (scenery, art and people) to a lineup that brings the best of dance music, modern pop and classics to their 5+ stages. This year’s offering includes the reunion of LCD Soundsystem and Guns N Roses along with pop and dance mega, Calvin Harris. Sprinkled across the other stages include countless fan favorites in every genre. Check out some of our photo highlights from weekend one below and stay tuned for more.

Up close and personal with JayKode, one of the early acts to rock the DoLab stage at Coachella

 

All hands up for JayKode

 

The DoLab stage is arguably the most artistic in the festival world, like a rainbow festival creature

 

Thousands move around the festival in the mid-day sun

Heineken House rocking in the afternoon

 

Drenched in green, the Heineken House is the ideal place to cool off with a beer in the hot afternoon desert sun…

 

…oh, and the music is great too!

The iconic Coachella ferris wheel looms above the festival grounds in the hazy afternoon sun

 

This festival is chock full of interesting art installations and incredible scenery

 

Of Monsters and Men play out to a massive crowd at the Coachella Main Stage

 

One of the massive installations reads Besame Mucho – sitting at the back of the Main Stage area

 

A$AP Rocky brought a massive crowd to the Outdoor stage – we couldn’t even get close

 

Underworld effectively tore the roof off of the Sahara tent, nobody was standing still, everyone was dancing

 

Ellie Goulding lit up the Coachella Main Stage with hit after hit

 

Jack Ü (Skrillex x Diplo) debuted a massive new production last night at the Outdoor stage, the likes of a massive classic mac computer adorned the stage with the super DJs sitting on top

 

One of the most anticipated acts of the weekend, the official reunion of LCD Soundsystem graced MainStage with some of their classics as well as some surprise covers (of Guns and Roses and the late David Bowie)

 

We started off our second day by heading to the BMF pool party, complete with flower crowds, #WHHSH beer and flying hamburgers

 

Icona Pop even stopped by for a few songs and a drink

 

After the sun set, we wandered over to Coachella, where Halsley had just gotten to the Outdoor stage

 

Her set was literally on fire

 

We then ran over to the Sahara tent to catch the last few minutes of Vince Staples…

 

…before Snails took the stage and slaughtered everyone with bombs of bass

 

Walking back to the Main Stage (to catch GnR) we saw a commotion happening in the smallest Coachella stage, the Gobi stage

 

Upon further inspection, we saw that it was Rüfüs Du Sol tearing the roof off the place

 

We passed by some funky artwork under the twinkle of the desert sky (and some flying balloons)

 

Finally, the main event, GnR took the stage together (back again after many long years)
