Coachella 2011. Day One

INDIO, California
(4/15/2011)

Cee Lo, Ms. Lauryn Hill, the Chemical Brothers, Sleigh Bells, Caifanes, Kings of Leon, Interpol, the Black Keys, Ozomatli, Crystal Castles, Brandon Flowers, Cold War Kids, Bloc Party’s Kele, Cut Copy, A-Trak, and Robyn all performed Friday April 15, 2011 at the Empire Polo Fields for Coachella 2011.

Stuck in traffic from Los Angeles, Cee Lo was 35 minutes late for his set and only played 4 songs. Sleigh Bells made their sophomore appearance at Coachella, playing for a packed Mojave tent. The Kings of Leon played Coachella before, but this was their first time as mainstage headliners. Ms. Lauryn Hill diversified her set with Bob Marley tributes as well as tracks from her “Miseducation of Lauryn Hill”.
