Photos by Joe Puglisi
We wrap up the week with our last look at standout photos from last weekend. I took several hundred photos at this year's Coachella Music and Arts Festival at the Empire Polo Club, you may have taken the time to peruse them the other day
. But we wanted to highlight a few of the standout shots from each day, with a little more context to highlight the heat of the moment (that's right, Asia style
). Check out some of the highlights of day two, and ICYMI, check out day one
and day two
Crazy structures like this made exploring the grounds in between bands worthwhile.
Thundercat sported a familiar logo during their set. Cries for an encore (one of the only organic ones I would have experienced) were unfortunately squashed by event organizers, who hurried the band off stage. Boo!
The Sahara Tent was the most sweaty, trancy, confusing place in all of Coachella. Here is a candid snap during my brief one-song visit. The DJ act attacking the ears of everyone involved with bass-bullets in this moment is Nero.
The Weeknd didn't quite clean up his act as well as Frank Ocean, but an enthusiastic crowd helped him by singing loud enough to drown out his moments of weakness.
The distinct cross-light of Justice was unmistakable, even from across the field in the VIP. The photo doesn't do their volume justice, though (no pun intended).
The nighttime really allowed Coachella's organizers to create some awesome scenery.
At The Drive-In had one of the best lines of the fest: "In a minute, we're bringing out Michael Vick and Pitbull to collaborate on stage. Discuss." Bonus points for Cedric putting his gum right on the camera in the pit, filming for the jumbo-tron, for everyone to see.
Florence's flowing dress made for some of the better photo opps of Sunday's selections. High drama.
We snuck a shot of the giant mirror (hanging above the stage) that would later provide the tech to make Tupac magically appear on stage.
Hard to forget about Dre when you get a good look at those biceps. Lookin' good for a dude pushing 50.
And Snoop kept up as well, sporting his giant Snoop Dogg bling and later, the world's most comically oversized blunt. Some things never change.
