Peso Pluma, Lana Del Rey & Billie Eilish, ATEEZ and More: Best Moments From Coachella 2024 Day 1

The first day of this year’s Coachella was loaded with memorable moments, from the genesis of a new hashtag to a bevy of special guest stars to Lana Del Rey‘s profound — and profoundly weird — headlining performance. Among the established acts playing on Friday were recently-minted superstar Peso Pluma, Lil Uzi Vert and Justice, while rising artists like Chappell Roan, Chlöe and ATEEZ also got a chance to shine on some of the festival’s smaller stages.

Del Rey’s performance proved to be a showstopper from the very beginning, when the singer-songwriter rode the back of a motorcycle in a caravan to the main stage. The noteworthy moments continued with the appearance of special guest stars Jon Batiste, Jack Antonoff and Billie Eilish — the latter of whom performed a pair of gorgeous duets with Del Rey: “Ocean Eyes” and Del Rey’s breakthrough hit “Video Games.” The roughly 90-minute performance also boasted some truly stunning set design, a bizarrely alluring hologram moment, Del Rey’s trademark sultry vocals, a generous helping of faded glamour and even some stripper pole twirling by the singer herself for good measure.

This was just the first day of the three-day festival’s first weekend, which continues tomorrow with a headlining performance by Tyler, the Creator as well as a special reunion appearance by No Doubt. On Sunday, the festival continues with a headlining set by Doja Cat.

Below, you can find all the highlights from Coachella day one, with additional recaps to follow on Saturday and Sunday.
