6 Wild Moments From Coachella

Coachella 2024's first weekend came and went with a bang. The famous California Music & Arts Festival had us in shock and awe with amazing special guests throughout the weekend. https://x.com/coachella/status/1777786028730056925 During [inlink id="2024-coachella-lineup" text="weekend one"], big names like Bebe Rexha, Tems, Victoria Monet, Renee Rapp, Tyler, the Creator, Lana Del Rey, Ice Spice, Sublime, Vampire Weekend, Doja Cat, J Balvin, Jhene Aiko, No Doubt, Coi Leray, Grimes, 21 Savage, Lauryn Hill, Taking Back Sunday, Lil Yachty, and many more. As always, famous faces were in attendance, watching their friends perform and letting loose with the rest of the crowd. Notably, Justin Bieber showed up without his wife, Hailey Bieber, adding to the rumors that their marriage isn't doing well. Meanwhile, love birds Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce hit up multiple stages, watching from the pit and getting super affectionate. https://x.com/coachella/status/1779808207134998952 While folks were expecting perfect shows and wild special guests brought on stage during performances, there were some artists who dropped the ball during their set. Grimes kept fumbling with her mixes during her set. She told the crowd that there has never been a show of hers without a "technical difficulty," and as she tried to explain to the Coachella crowd, she said, "Don't blame me because it's not my fault! Well, it's partially my fault, but it's not entirely my fault." In the "classic Grimes fashion," the musician added that her songs had been set to a double tempo and had to do "a lot of internal math" to try to get it sorted to play for the patiently waiting crowd.

Meanwhile, one fan said, "This could be the worst performance in the history of Coachella." She took to X (formerly Twitter) to issue a formal apology to fans. Adding that she "admittedly am not in the best mood atm," Grimes said her set next week "will be flawless." https://x.com/GhostTrainNFTs/status/1779389041705652259 Besides the mishaps, there were plenty of awe-inspiring, wild moments from Coachella's first weekend.
