More Surprises At Coachella's Second Weekend
April 21, 2014

Arcade Fire
For the second weekend in a row, the Coachella Arts & Music Festival took over Indio, CA. While the lineup was essentially the same as it had been the week before, there were a number of unique surprises and changes to the event. Last weekend's edition included the first reunion performance from Outkast, which had received some criticisms for its pacing and setlist. Their second Coachella performance was much better received, with reports saying the Hip-Hop duo had worked out the kinks for a more crowd-pleasing show.

One of the most notable sets of the weekend came from the reunited version of The Replacements. Frontman Paul Westerberg essentially bowed out of the performance, citing a back problem, and played guitar while laid out on a couch onstage. Meanwhile, a bearded Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day took the spotlight, singing and playing guitar for almost the entirety of the 'Mats' set, with Westerberg only getting up and performing standing up at the end of the set#

Arcade Fire closed out Sunday night by pranking the audience, bringing a faux Daft Punk onstage to pretend to play "Get Lucky." The band also brought Beck out during their encore for a cover of "Controversy" by Prince (Beck had actually covered an Arcade Fire song earlier that day).

Pharrell brought out a different set of surprise guests for his second Coachella set, with T.I., Usher and Jay Z making cameos during the hitmaker's performance.
