Harry Styles performs at Coachella and surprises a fan with Shania Twain’s cameo
After a two-year absence, Coachella has made its highly anticipated return.
Located in Indio, California, the Desert Festival has grown in popularity over the years for its glitzy Instagram-worthy dress code and main celebrity guests.
The festival leads the pack when it comes to innovative programming. Two of its hottest artists (Harry Styles and Billie Eilish) are under 30, while further down the carefully curated bill you’ll find some of the hottest new acts – Koffee, Amyl and the Sniffers, Rina Sawayama – mingling with old school staples such as Spiritualized and The Avalanches.
