It was amazing. You must all go. If Glastonbury is going to be better than this I AM SO EXCITED!
Here is a wee photo essay to summarise the weekend. Silly blog jumbled them so they're not in chronological order but I can't fight this slow internet for too much longer!
Top acts according to Emily
Outkast - omg, apparently they were a bit crap weekend 1 but they must of seriously revised these faults as they were phenomenal! Extremely excited to see them again at Glastonbury in June.
Pharrell - What a performer! Everyone was just overwhelmed with what was happening on that stage. He performed songs I had forgotten were even his, this guy is amazing. And after seeing Jay Z perform, I defintiely need to add him into my concert bucket list.
Calvin Harris - I didn't think Calvin would be that great to be honest, but from the moment he started DJ-ing the crowd just went absolutely ballistic. I had to ration out my jumping throughout his set as I just wasn't fit enough to keep up!
Rudimental - such a super act to see live and my main man John Newman came onto stage to sing Feel the Love which blew my mind.
Other top mentions go to: Chromeo, Ellie Goulding, Disclosure (feat. Mary J Blige - BLAST FROM THE PAST), Arcade Fire & Netsky - who closed Coachella in style.

|When the sky exploded with confetti at Pharell for Happy. Absolutely incredible. Loved seeing Jay Z, Usher and Busta Rhymes up there, it was all just a bit much and then this confetti explosion! JOY!|
|Lost and delirious on the COACHELLA NIGHT TOUR! Bloody Mario...|
|Rudimental - also a highlight, so impressive live!|
