Hans Zimmer brings out Pharrell at Coachella — watch

An unexpected, totally awesome performance of "Freedom"

Hans Zimmer was already one of the more compelling sets of the Coachella weekend, and then he went ahead and brought out Pharrell Williams. After blowing minds and hearts with music from Inception, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lion King, and Gladiator, the legendary film composer was joined onstage by Williams to perform “Freedom”. Watch fan-shot footage below. If you’re wondering the connection, Zimmer and Williams previously worked together on the score for Hidden Figures.


Update: Also watch pro-shot footage of “Inception” below.

Zimmer’s Coachella setlist ran 18 songs, which is about half the number of songs he performed two nights prior at the Microsoft Theater in LA. Stupid festival curfews.
