The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia wrapped up Coachella weekend 1 with an epic set on night 3, giving the massive crowd a night to remember.
SHM played solo for the first hour, with classics like “Don’t You Worry Child” and “Save The World” — easy to say the crowd was hyped.
The Weeknd joined the group onstage for remixes of songs like “Moth To A Flame” and “Sacrifice” off his latest album, Dawn FM. After their collab performance, the solo artist stuck around for the final hour to do some of his own chart-breaking hits like “Blinding Lights” and “The Hills.”
The Weeknd headlined the Indio festival back in 2018, as well as held performances in 2015, and again in 2012 — the same year SHM headlined.
The night was one to remember, but obviously was supposed to go in a different direction … as we reported, Kanye West was set to headline Sunday, but backed out the week before the festival began — catching Coachella’s producers off-guard. We were told Ye left an $8M deal on the table after walking away.
