After an electrifying Coachella Weekend 1, festival-goers are more than ready for an even bigger Weekend 2. Friday night kicked off the weekend festivities with performances by Janelle Monáe, The 1975, Kacey Musgraves, BLACKPINK, and more. Saturday is destined to be just as epic, filled with standout headlining performances and acts you simply won't want to miss. Check out our recommendations for the best Saturday performances below to maximize your time in the desert.

Start off an exhilarating day with performances by Wallows, Mac DeMarco, and a DJ set by Virgil Abloh — you know, the one Kendall Jenner wouldn't stop Instagramming last weekend. Weezer hits the Coachella Stage later in the evening, as does Juice WRLD, with just enough time to make it to Billie Eilish's headlining set. Following Billie's incredible performance, cap off your Saturday night with the smooth stylings of Tame Impala and sets by either Kid Cudi or Bassnectar.

Other acts you simply won't want to miss include J Balvin, a breakout Latin star who's taken the festival scene by storm, and CHON, who delivered a surprisingly epic set last Saturday by bringing out jazz legend Kenny G mid-set. However you choose to spend your Saturday, Round 2 is sure to be one hell of a ride. Just be sure you're up early enough on Sunday to catch Kanye's once-in-a-lifetime Sunday Service performance.
