Lady Gaga led an explosive follow-up performance to her highly anticipated Weekend 1 headlining appearance. The pop sensation gave Coachella crowds a performance of her biggest hits, fireworks and, in true Gaga fashion, a bevy of dazzling outfit changes. If her performance wasn't remarkable enough, the singer also made history this weekend by being the first female headliner to perform at Coachella since Björk who headlined back in 2007. Despite the jam-packed week, Gaga also managed to film concert scenes for her new film, "A Star Is Born", directed by Bradley Cooper at the festival.

Kendrick Lamar

Lamar also recently announced his DAMN. tour which will feature special guests Travis Scott and D.R.A.M.
