Coachella 2014 kicked off yesterday with an opening lineup worthy of the Coachella tradition. What started out as a protest against Ticketmaster’s control of big venues has ironically become a yearly hot ticket item. The Coachella Music and Arts Festival, which has been held annually since 2001, is once again spread out this year over two weekends: Apr. 11 to 13 and then Apr. 18 – 20. The festival each year gathers music talent from all genres at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.

Over 150 acts will grace Coachella’s stages this year including OutKast, Lorde, Ellie Goulding, Lana Del Rey, Foster the People, Zedd, Calvin Harris and more. We’ve assembled concert pics of some of the bigger pop acts that took the stage on day one. 

OutKast

The much talked about OutKast reunion was the most anticipated performance from opening night. The team of Big Boi and Andre 3000 had been on hiatus as a duo since 2007. However, in late 2013 the hip-hop stars announced that Coachella would serve as the first stop in more than 40 planned festival performances around the world in 2014.
