After a two-year hiatus, Coachella returned to the desert of Indio, CA in full force. With 7 stages packed full of star-studded performances, fan surprises, and appearances from some of the top acts in Hip Hop, R&B, and soul performing today, the annual music and arts festival made its grand return with millions of eager (and maskless) concert-goers on the grounds across three days.

Stars like Doja Cat, Megan Thee Stallion, and City Girls brought the girl-power energy to their headlining sets, complete with choreography, pole dancers, costume changes, glam, and live bands.
