Coachella 2011 Day 3: Kanye West Lights Up The Main Stage
Kanye West lit up the main stage on the final day of Coachella, performing a nearly two hour set with guest artist appearances by Pusha-T and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver. Billboard called it a “hip-hop concert meshed with elements of high-art theater,” and Kanye West is quoted as saying, “When I was working on my [“Dark Fantasy”] album, I kept thinking that I couldn’t wait to perform ‘Power’ at Coachella… This is the most important show to me since my mom passed.”
Sunday’s other top bands included The Strokes, Duran Duran, PJ Harvey, Jimmy Eat World, and Wiz Khalifa. Paris Hilton, David Hasselhoff, and Dita Von Teese were among the celebs spotted at the final day of the music festival.
