We know we rolled our eyes when it was announced that Calvin Harris was headlining Coachella this year. In what universe does he deserve to share top billing with LCD Soundsystem and Guns N' Roses? Here's the thing though. In 2016, he's an infinitely bigger draw than either of those acts (and a bigger draw than LCD Soundsystem ever has been or ever will be). And as easy as it is to mock his basic EDM, he is responsible for one of the best tracks of the 2010s, "We Found Love" featuring Rihanna. And he brought out none other than RiRi herself for a "surprise" performance of the track as he closed out this year's Coachella festivities.
The only thing missing was an appearance from his girlfriend, Taylor Swift. Come on, Tay-tay. We thought you were all about those squad goals?
