Skrillex : Even though he went on early in the day (3:30pm) the Sahara Tent was packed and he killed it. Korn's Jonathan Davis and Munky Shaffer made a special appearance for two tracks including their new collaboration "Get Up." Also, Skrillex's remix of DJ Kool's "Let Me Clear My Throat" was legit.
"Get Up" - Skrillex & Korn
Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All: Really messy sounding and yelling "F**k the police!" every second was so annoying.
Afrojack: Huge surprise when Paul McCartney joined Afrojack on stage during his DJ set.
Marina and the Diamonds
The Black Keys
Crystal Castles: Wow, vocalist Alice Glass sounds horrible live. I am going to pretend those 15 min that I saw them at the Outdoor Theater before I was forced to leave by her shrieking never happened because I love their album Crystal Castles II.
Kings of Leon
Laidback Luke: Wynter Gordon made a surprise appearance to perform "Dirty Talk."
"Dirty Talk (Laidback Luke Remix)" - Wynter Gordon
Mumford & Sons: This group is so talented and sounded amazing live. I really enjoyed their new song "Lover's Eyes."
Fedde Le Grand
Paul van Dyk
Steve Angello: He never disappoints, strong set and closed with Swedish House Mafia's yet to be released track "Save The World Tonight."
Jack's Mannequin: Finally I got to see Jack's Mannequin live and even though it felt like a million degrees out at 2pm on the main stage, front man Andrew McMahon had so much energy and lived up to all my expectations.
Angus and Julia Stone
Jimmy Eat World
Ellie Goulding: She was so impressive to see live, playing guitar and fiercely banging on the drums for a few songs. She too had a ton of energy on stage, looked and sounded great. I just wish I had "Starry Eyed" sunglasses that many in the crowd were rockin'.
Tinie Tempah: I only caught his opening song "Written in the Stars" but the sound quality at the Gobi Tent wasn't great--or maybe it was Tinie Tempah--so I didn't stick around for long.
"Written In The Stars (Ft. Eric Turner)" - Tinie Tempah
Chase and Status
Kanye West: I wasn't super impressed, but the stage set was cool and I love me some fireworks.
Axwell: Unfortunately Axwell's set got cut short and thus it was kind of a disappointing closing act for the Coachella weekend--which I blame on the festival organizers and not Axwell.
Grade: A for effort!
"Heart Is King" - Axwell
Biggest Regret: That I didn't see Empire of the Sun because I was hanging out at the VIP cabanas next to the Sahara tent. Apparently their costumes were insane as well as their LED-lit instruments.
Coolest Discovery: The Heineken Dome--it was air conditioned and DJ Dan had a great set on Sunday night.
