Continuing with our music journey!

Coachella Weekend 2, Day Two was a thrilling fusion of diverse sounds and unforgettable moments again, with a lineup that had something for everyone. The big difference during the second day was definitely the weather… it was hot in the desert!

With a temperature close to the 100s, our day was looking a little languid, but the promise of great music kept us going. With an eclectic music lineup, the vibrant art installations, and stunning desert scenery combined to create an unforgettable atmosphere that was hard not to enjoy regardless of the incandescent sun.

Our plan for Saturday had a little bit of everything, rap, rock, hip-hop, Britpop, ska, and electro-industrial synth wave.

Another great day ahead in the desert!

The adventure of the day started with Girl Ultra, the Mexican singer who kicked things off inside the Sonora tent with a soulful set that blended R&B and Latin pop, instantly engaging the crowd and setting a laid-back yet vibrant mood. Her fans sang and waved their hands with every song she played.

While on the main stage, it was the turn of another Mexican artist, Santa Fe Klan who brought a dose of high-energy rap and hip-hop, igniting the festival with his rapid-fire verses and infectious beats. The singer commanded the stage with their distinctive style, captivating the audience with passionate delivery and compelling storytelling. The Mexican flags were raised among the crowd making their nationalism present in the festival.

The Last Dinner Party

From there we ran to the Gobi stage to enjoy the English UK band The Last Dinner Party who seamlessly fused genres, from electronica to indie rock, they created a mesmerizing auditory journey. The stage presence of singer Abigail, Georgia on bass, Aurora on keyboards, and Lizzie and Emily on guitars was magnetic! Each member brought a unique energy that reverberated through the crowd. Songs “Burn Alive”, “Second Best”, and “Nothing Matters” at the end of her performance had the whole crowd singing their lungs out.

Some ska, rock and post-punk for our souls!

On the other side of the field, the guys of Sublime were getting on stage to bring a little nostalgia to the audience. The band now fronted by Bradley Nowell’s son Jakob, transported everyone back to the ’90s with their iconic ska-punk sound, playing hits that had the crowd singing along word-for-word such as “What I Got”, “Date Rape”, and “Santeria.”

Depresión Sonora’s performance was an atmospheric journey through haunting melodies and evocative lyrics. The band’s dark, post-punk-inspired sound captivated the crowd, creating a unique and immersive experience.

No Doubt

And there’s no doubt, No Doubt conquered the day on Saturday. The moment Gwen Stefani, Tony Kanal, Adrian Young and Tom Dumont appeared on stage, the whole audience (us included) erupted with excitement! To witness the return on stage of such an iconic band playing live was incredible and they were there to remind everyone why they’re rock legends.

Gwen Stefani’s energy was off the charts, and their classic hits like “Hella Good”, “Sunday Morning”, “It’s My Life”, “Don’t Speak”, “Just a Girl” and for the end, the song that put them on the charts worldwide “Spiderweb” had the thousands and thousands of fans singing along with the band. Stefani didn’t stop thanking everyone for their support all these years and was clearly happy to do it again. It was a perfect way to end our exhilarating day of music and excitement.
