Posted at April 17th, 2015 | by Shakir Jameel | in

While we are busy saving the Internet from the monopoly of our Telecos, the people of California are having the time of their lives.The Coachella Music Festival completed its first weekend and four words sum the mood up, EAT SLEEP RAVE REPEAT.
 
A special glimpse of some fist pumping, jaw dropping and a surreal music experience the first week of Coachella turned out to be.
 
Chances are that if a festival goer skipped AC/DC at the Coachella Festival, they probably camped out at the Sahara tent instead.

“My name is Alesso,” He said. “(Expletive)! I’ve been waiting for this day!”
And a kaleidoscope of colours exploded while confetti canons shot out colourful strings and the crowd erupted with elation.

 

Axwell ^ Ingrosso, two thirds of Swedish House Mafia, sent fans home happy with their electro and progressive house set.

Axwell ^ Ingrosso performed a blend of music that included a remix of Daft Punk’s “One More Time,” their own “Sun is Shining” and Swedish House Mafia’s “Don’t You Worry Child” to which many fans sang along.

 

David Guetta pleased his audience with his amazing set and a special appearance by Black Eyed Peas who joined him onstage to perform “This Is Awesome” and “I Gotta Feeling”.

Kygo enjoyed his performance at Coachella over the weekend with a rousing trop-house set that included a live vocalist and a marketing stunt that involved throwing USB’s filled with his music into the crowd which included his collaboration with Dillon Francis and their track “Coming Over” featuring vocalist James Hersey.

French DJ/producer Madeon fired up the turntables for one of the most surprising, effervescent sets at Coachella. The gig was more packed than with some of the bigger names that rocked the same tent this weekend and rightfully so.

We are sure that this coming weekend of the festival will not disappoint us, and we will make sure that our readers get all that is happening in the EDM scene of this ongoing festival.
