Big Sean and Mike Posner hyped the crowd with their performance
Big Sean made the crowd go wild when he went shirtless while singing “Mercy.” But the crowd got even wilder when Mike Posner joined him. The two led the audience on a trip down memory lane back to 2010 as they sang a few choruses of “Cooler than Me.”
The fans expressed their awe and appreciation for the two.

Kendrick Lamar surprised fans at Coachella 2022
Baby Keem drove the crowd crazy when his cousin Kendrick Lamar joined him in his performance. Unfortunately, only the in-person audience had the chance to watch them perform because their performance was not included in the Coachella livestream.
Kendrick Lamar made his comeback tonight at Coachella, but they didn’t stream his performance & completely cut Baby Keem’s set short and showed Harry Style’s set instead 😐

Conan Gray also served looks and got the crowd’s attention with his stunning pink sequined jumpsuit, similar to what he wore during the first week of the festival.
Billie Eilish and Hayley Williams’ iconic “Misery Business” duet
Billie Eilish surprised Paramore fans by sharing the stage with the band’s lead singer Hayley Williams.

The Weeknd wraps up the weekend
Coachella 2022 ends with a bang!
After two years of being on hiatus due to the pandemic, the Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia headed for the final day of the Coachella Music & Arts Festival 2022.
They played the same song line-up from last weekend, but the difference is the crowd this weekend is wilder and more energetic. They jumped, shouted, laughed, and sang along with the performers.
They were joined by Swedish House Mafia, who performed their most famous song, “Don’t You Worry Child,” where the crowd sang in unison. An extraordinary moment indeed.
Coachella is the music festival that everyone looks forward to every year, so it must have been exhilarating for fans to be able to attend it again after nearly two years. Hopefully, we can look forward to Coachella again in the succeeding years, with more performers and outstanding performances.
