Madonna. Coachella 2006

INDIO, California

A late addition to the Coachella 2006 lineup, Madonna performed Sunday April 30, 2006 to a packed Sahara Tent.   Her performance would mark the first ever festival appearance for Madonna.  In front of thousands of fans, she performed hits from her “Confessions on a Dance Floor” album as well as her 1984 smash “Like a Virgin”.

Madonna performed with her troupe of dancers and backup musicians in a 50 minute set Saturday.  Fans from the UK, Germany, Italy, and Japan came from abroad just to see the star perform.

Sunday night would feature Daft Punk in the Sahara tent.  Other 2006 performers included: Depeche Mode, Franz Ferdinand, Sigur Ros, Damian Marley, Common, My Morning Jacket, Devendra Banhart, and Imogen Heap.
