Beck played the event in its inaugural year in 1999 – five years before Cosimo was even born.

The rock star has made regular cameo appearances at the festival throughout the years, however this was only his second official set.

He was even at the event with the same band he played with in 1999 – with the notable addition of his son.

Cosimo wasn’t rocking out on a guitar however – he was responsible for the tambourine during the performance.

Beck introduced the performance: "Fifteen years later, here we are, on the same stage, with the same band.

"Justin Meldal-Johnsen on the bass, Gus Seyffert on the keyboards, Joey Waronker on the drums, Smokey Hormel on the guitar, Roger Manning on the keyboards - and we've got someone new.

“We've got Cosimo on the tambourine up here!"

Coachella has grown in popularity in recent years – with dozens of celebrities descending on the festival annually.
