The first weekend of Coachella was an eventful one, not least due to the calbre of the line-up which saw Childish Gambino, Tame Impala and Ariana Grande headlining across the three nights.
Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, launched into his guestless Friday night set by requesting that fans ditch their phones which, at the Indio, California festival, is akin to asking them to chew off their own left arms.
He went down a storm nevertheless, reportedly pausing mid-set for a few minutes to smoke and shoot the breeze with a fan.
Friday also boasted performances from rock band The 1975, Janelle Monae, and Grammy winner for best album, country music star Kacey Musgraves.
Saturday's headliner, Tame Impala, treated fans to an eclectic set, performing hits such as Let It Happen, Apocalypse Dreams and Borderline.
However, it was American teenager Billie Eilish - the 17-year-old who became the first artist born in the 2000s to achieve a number one album in the US - who caused the biggest stir on Saturday.
Although she arrived on stage half an hour late she wowed fans with songs from her album When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
She also asked fans to be mindful of living the experience rather than recording it through their phones.
“We’re always looking forward to the next thing. We’re not thinking about what’s happening right now and this’s happening right now. And this is crazy," she said.
“This is the only chance we get to be in the moment, so why don’t we be?”
Eilish managed to forget her own lyrics to All the Good Girls Go to Hell, but it only endeared her even more to the crowd. However, there were other issues with her set, which also plagued other artists across the weekend.
The microphone of her guest, Vince Staples, was not working for most of their duet.
Away from the main stage, things appeared to run a little more smoothly, with Wheezer praised for their set which saw them perform 'Everybody Wants to Rule the World' with Tears for Fears and TLC's Chilli for a version of 'No Scrubs'.
Idris Elba also took to the decks for a set which ultimately saw him applauded off stage.
On Sunday, Katy Perry made a surprise appearance on the main stage alongside record producer Zedd to perform their single 365.
She told fans she “used to sneak in” to the festival, adding: “I’ve been doing Coachella for about 17 years.”
Also on Sunday night, Ariana Grande (25) made history by becoming the youngest headline act in Coachella's 20-year-history.
She headlined with a belter of a set including guest appearances from NSYNC, Justin Timberlake, P Diddy, Mase, and Nicky Minaj.
NSYNC and Jutin Timberlake joined her to perform Tearin Up My Heart. She also performed Biggie's 1996 single Mo Money Mo Problems with P Diddy and Mase.
However, technical issues conspired to ruin Nicki Minaj's guest appearance. They were performing Bang Bang and Side to Side together when sound issues struck. At one point Ariana declared 'We can't hear anything'.
Consummate professionals, they bravely soldiered on, as did Lizzo, who had experienced similar issues on Friday.
It was her Coachella debut and Variety reports that the soul singer, who sings live to a pre-recorded track, had the sound disappear at several points during her set.
However, she persevered with her performance despite the issues, much to the admiration of the crowd, although she did address those issues at one point
“It’s my first time playing Coachella, so ain’t nothing gonna f*** my time up, bitch!” she said, before adding, in the direction of production, “So when I’m headlining next time I’m gonna need my motherf***ing ears to work.”
The second weekend of the Coachella Vallye Music and Arts Festival takes place from APril 19-21 and features an identival line-up. Fans have been calling for any sound issues to be resolved before then.
