Mind-Blowing Moments of Coachella Festival 2012

April 25th, 2012 | Music | music events


Coachella is a legendary festival in California that attracts many people and musicians. It lasts for three days. Every year many interesting memorable moments take place at the festival. Let us have a look at what happened this year. This year it was full of surprises and musicians of course!

There are a lot of cool moments that are discussed by people who were at the festival and the ones who missed the show! Tupac Hologram – this is what all spoke about when the fist weekend of Coachella 2012 finished. The projection of a legendary rapper became the main event of the festival.


Coachella is famous for its ability to unite the lost bands together again. Something of the kind took place again at Coachella. This is the most unexpected thing of the festival: Tupac Shakur was revived through three dimension hologram. It was really a surprise for all fans. He performed the song '2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted' with Snoop on 'Hail Mary'. They also invited some MCs to come out to the stage as they ran the show that continued for 90 minutes. Eminem, Tony Yayo, 50 Cent, Warren G, Kendrick Lamar and Wiz Khalifa performed on the stage during the party, demonstrating to all that California is able to party!


Rihanna guest performance also became one of such moments. She arrived there as a gift and was announced this way too. But still not just the fact of her appearance became a matter of discussion but the way it was done. The photos Rihanna published entailed much debate in mass media. Her indecent behavior when she sits on the shoulders of her guardian and puts the white powder on the bold head clearly demonstrates what kind of fun the R'n'B star has. Rihanna seems to say to all that she is a very bad girl.


There was a debut performance of Abel Tesfaye that was received well by the public. The same can be said about Gotye, a singer-songwriter. This Australian of Belgian origin performed on Coachella with his collaborator Kimbra. The duet sang the song 'Somebody I Used to Know'.


Frank Ocean became the Coachella performer who is able to bring an Odd Future member onstage. 2 days after Ocean brought out Tyler, who created Santigold invited the rapper Earl Sweatshirt to the stage during her set. Santi White came to Coachella 4 years later after playing the festival for the first time, while Odd Future made a debut on the festival last April.

If you remember the naked wizard 2009, then you should know that there was a naked raver at the festival this year.  He put off his clothes for all to see him naked. Well, this is a Coachella!
