Couldn’t Make It to Indio? See These Top Coachella Performances Instead

Couldn't make it to the California desert to catch one of the States' biggest music festivals this year? No sweat, plenty of folks who made the trek were kind enough to upload videos of the best moments onto YouTube. Highlights include reunions of some of our favorite bands, up-and-comers and an under-the-radar surprise visit by one of the biggest pop stars in the world.

Solange (and Beyoncé)

Solange performed her hit "Losing You" and wowed audiences all over the world when her uber-famous sister emerged from backstage to join her in a quick dance.



Everyone's favorite teen pop star played a rather passionate set that included all her biggest hits — and plenty of friendly on-stage banter.


Ellie Goulding

Ellie's hits definitely shined in Indio.


Calvin Harris

We're pretty sure there's no better performance than Harris' thumping, hypnotic dance tunes.



The biggest up-and-coming indie act of last summer proved a raucous addition to this year's festival.



One of the biggest — and best — draws for this year's festival was the reunion of this modern classic band.


Foster the People

Festival sets are usually pretty bare bones, so we appreciate this trippy animation-heavy set from Foster the People.



MGMT is still going strong and somehow managing to make "Electric Feel," which came out in 2007, still feel and sound totally fresh.



If their club hit "Latch," which features Sam Smith on vocals, doesn't make you want to get up and dance, we don't know what will.


Pet Shop Boys

"West End Girls" is a timeless classic — and evidenced here by how relevant and cool it still sounds.
