The Coachella music festival is in full swing, with performances from Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia.
Swedish House Mafia’s Steve Angello, Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso performed at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival at the Empire Polo Club on Sunday.
Billie Eilish mania swept the site ahead of her performance on Saturday, April 16, following her partner Harry Styles’ show on the first night, which included a surprise appearance by the queen of country herself, Shania Twain.
Swedish House Mafia opened the set with a powerful medley of their hits, accompanied by giant washes of white light, fog and spotlights. After about 50 minutes, the beat changed, a single sample of the Weeknd’s voice saying simply “ah” wafting into the mix, and he emerged on a dais in the center of the giant circle, singing the “Sacrifice” remix earlier. moving on to “How do I make you love me?”
The Weeknd, looking dapper in a black T-shirt, military-style vest, and baggy pants and boots, roared through a mega-mix of songs that made one realize how many hits he’s had (his track listing below) as that Swedish House Mafia vacated the stage. .
