I feel like I spend half my time linking to Pitchfork articles, but I guess that’s because they do a damn good job at covering music. They’ve created a big post linking to a bunch of videos from the Coachella festival.
Wired loved the festival, particularly Jay-Z’s set
But that’s not to say there weren’t highlights, the biggest I’m-texting-my-friends-about-this-right-now moment being when he brought out Beyoncé Knowles — the Bonnie to his Clyde — to sing the chorus on his track “Forever Young.” They’re a couple that eschews much, if any, attention given to their union, but for those few minutes onstage, the Coachella crowd got a small glimpse of what it’s like to see two of the biggest names in music, well, flirt. Needless to say, it went over well.
“I got goose bumps when Beyoncé came out,” Matt Johnson of indie dance-punk duo Matt & Kim said Saturday, to which his band mate Kim Schifino replied, “See? Going in [I was thinking], ‘I bet 10 bucks he brings out Beyoncé.’”
Personally, I was a fan of watching the Gorillaz performance with De La Soul (via video of course since I couldn’t be there for real.) Watch that below.
