Day 2, Saturday, was a day full of artists! The weather started warming up into the comfortable 90’s We started the day touring the Spectra and then enjoying the AMEX Lounge for Watermelon Sugar and drinks. Then it was artist after artist, the girls took a break back to the camp to refresh, but I had to continue on… We got separated the rest of the evening. I went to a pizza stand near the end of the evening and as I went to pay the gal said, “It’s yours” and didn’t want my payment, I really didn’t know why since everyone else in line was paying!! I saw everyone I wanted to see that day!!

I saw Caroline last December in Seattle. Her vocal tones are so unique, where she can jump between octaves. Her vocals sort of reminded me of UK singer Dido. Later that night she joined Flume on the Coachella stage singing “Sirens”.

Billie Eilish -
Coachella Stage 11:30 pm
I had first seen Billie at Coachella 2019 when she was 17. I had also just seen her a month previous at Climate Pledge Arena. Now at 20 Billie once again owned the stage.
In between a couple songs, when the lights went down, Billie slipped and fell right on her face. All we heard was, “I just ate ass“!
Billie and FINNEAS were joined on stage by Paramore lead singer Hayley Williams. They sang her hit, “Misery Business” to great audience elation. There was one point in time that I had seen Paramore more than any other band!
