If you’re on Instagram, or just social media in general, chances are you’ve noticed what appears to be every celebrity and artist imaginable… all in attendance at this year’s Coachella Festival.
Thousands have gathered at the annual event in California for sun, fashion, and headline performances from The Weeknd, Beyonce and Eminem.
Take a look at the most recent pictures from Coachella, below:
SZA invited Kendrick Lamar on for a surprise performance at her set this year, where they treated fans to renditions of “Doves in the Wind”, from her album CTRL, and their Black Panther collaboration “All The Stars”.
Rihanna’s Coachella outfit (one of many, anyway) went down a storm:
Nicki Minaj shared a photo on Instagram that caused many fans to do a double-take, as she was pictured with The Weeknd, Wav, Belly, French Montana and… Shania Twain?
In another picture from the same moment you could spot Call Me By Your Name actor Timothee Chalamet lurking in the background, clearly having a ball.
Ummm is this Shania Twain, Nicki Minaj and Timothée Chalamet hanging out at Coachella??? Wow I can’t believe I’m seeing the Holy Trinity in on picture rn pic.twitter.com/Fh7mq44wRG

Chalamet also shared this photo from his own Instagram:
The Weeknd gave an emotional performance during his headline slot on the Friday night (13 April) – video footage shows the US artist close to tears as he sang “Call Out My Name” – a new song rumoured to be about his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez.
See fan-shot footage of the performance below:
Then there was Beyonce’s history-making, jaw-dropping headline show on Saturday night (14 April).
For those intrigued by the fashion side of Bey’s show: Stylist Marni Senofonte apparently approached Olivier Rousteing after his Fall 2018 runway show for Balmain, and explained to him that she was trying to find the right designer to create custom looks for Beyoncé’s upcoming Coachella performance.
“Marni told me that the shows were all about survivors and that B was looking for something in a military style,” Rousteing told Vogue. “Our silhouettes and our sort of Mad Max, futuristic take on military looks for Fall were a perfect fit.”
Rousting went to work with Senofonte and the rest of Beyoncé’s team to create two custom Balmain stage wardrobes: one for each of her performances on 14 April, as well as for the following Saturday.
Rousteing was also tasked with dressing the 200-some dancers on stage, as well as Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, who reunited with Beyoncé for a Destiny’s Child throwback moment this weekend.
