Harry Styles performs at Coachella and surprises fan with Shania Twain cameo
After a two-year absence, Coachella has made its highly anticipated return.
Located in Indio, California, the desert festival has gained popularity over the years for its glitzy Instagram-worthy dress code and major celebrity guest sightings.
The festival leads the pack when it comes to innovative lineups. Two of its top-billed artists (Harry Styles and Billie Eilish) are under 30, while further down the carefully curated bill you’ll find some of the buzziest new acts around – Koffee, Amyl and the Sniffers, Rina Sawayama – mingling with old school staples such as Spiritualized and The Avalanches.

Fans of tonight’s headliner Billie Eilish will be delighted to know there’s an entire tent selling Billie specific merch. They might not be as happy to find out that a plain black hoodie costs $90 (£69) and a water bottle $30 (£23).

Billie Eilish has arrived ahead of her history-making performance
Billie Eilish’s eponymous perfume brand tweeted a photo of the singer at Coachella next to a giant replica of the fragrance’s bottle, which is a kind of a metallic bust with half a head missing.

These hills at Coachella look familiar…
Little known Coachella fact. The Teletubbie hills were relocated to the festival site in the early 2000s and now act as a home base for rickshaw drivers and stray influencers.
