Desert. Music. Heat. Fashionistas. Celebrities. Festivalgoers. Sound familiar? Yep, it’s another year at Coachella, and as expected, everyone came out in full force, ready to soak up the sun for three days in Indio, California. Friday’s festivities went long and loud, thanks to jaw-dropping performances by St. Vincent, SZA, The War on Drugs, The Weeknd, Kali Uchis, and the list goes on.
Fortunately for you, our own photographer Natalie Somekh was all over the festival grounds, snapping everything that caught her eye — which was quite a lot. Take a look at her extensive Friday photo gallery below, and stay tuned for her photo coverage of Saturday and Sunday as the days go by, all of which will be followed by John Flynn’s festival report come Monday.
