Weekend one closed with the best day of music by far. The wind died down, the sun was out and the crowd, it seemed, doubled in size. James Vincent McMorrow and J. Roddy Walston started the day, followed by great sets by Courtney Barnett and LA's own Poolside. Classixx hosted a giant dance party in the Mojave tent, with special guests including LA locals Yacht, who performed their hit "Psychic City." Rudimental bent genres, Zoé played bilingual rock and Blood Orange transfixed the crowd at the Outdoor Theatre. Neutral Milk Hotel had a rocky start, but then played an incredible, noisy set, placating locals who felt left out of their no-SoCal-stop tour. Those down to dance chose between Calvin Harris and Little Dragon, followed by ladies Lana Del Rey (slow despite herself) and Daughter (slow on purpose, and perfect). Beck played a solid set full of favorites on the Coachella stage, gave a heartwarming speech about the history of the festival and then promptly had his sound cut mid-song (rude). He made the best of it by continuing to dance onstage with his son/tambourine player, eight-year old Cosimo (giving Unlocking the Truth a run for their money in the cute kids of Coachella department). Lemmy rocked the shit out of the Motorhead set, bringing Slash onstage for a ripping rendition of "Ace of Spades." Jhené Aiko welcomed Drake onstage for her set (he's no Slash, but he'll do). Aracade Fire closed down the night with an incredible, lengthy set full of energy, gratitude and funky facepaint. It was a day of great music (by far the best lineup of the weekend) and a perfect way to end weekend one.
