Gaga premieres new single

Lady Gaga took the stage at Coachella on Saturday and dropped a new song entitled "The Cure." After she performed the new song it was immediately released to streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music for online listening. In addition to the song, Gaga's set included some old favorites like "Telephone," "Edge of Glory." and "Alejandro," as well as songs off her more recent album "Joanne" such as "Million Reasons." Gaga's crowd drew other celebrities in addition to the rest of the concert-goers. Other musically inclined stars spotted enjoying the set included Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Wiz Khalifa.

Lady Gaga was only recently announced to be performing as a headliner after Beyonce dropped out of the show. Beyonce is currently expecting twins with her husband Jay-Z and dominating the stage at the music festival wasn't in the cards this time. Although she is rumored to be headlining in 2018.

Of course, Gaga was a great replacement choice for Beyonce and the crowd was thrilled to see her, especially so closely following her Super Bowl halftime performance. At one point Gaga even responded to some fans. She spoke to the crowd and shared that it made her tear up whenever her fans screamed to her that they love her while she's on stage.

Other headliners

Other headliners over the weekend included The Cure, Radiohead, Bon Iver, and Future.

When Future played on Saturday he surprised fans in a huge way by bringing out Drake as a surprise guest.

The first weekend of Coachella will end Sunday night and then resume the following weekend. The festival draws thousands of fans and has become extremely popular with celebrities who attend the concerts as well as parties throughout the weekend.

Naturally, many of them take to Instagram to show off the fun times.

Kylie Jenner was seen entering the PrettyLittleThing x Paper Magazine's party with green hair. Selena and her boyfriend The Weeknd were seen taking in some shows together. A PacSun and Chevy party at the Bootsy Bellows Estate welcomed Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, and Ryan Phillipe.

The ever popular Neon Carnival party drew the likes of stars like Leonardo Dicaprio, Orlando Bloom, Toby Maguire, Drake, Amber Rose, and French Montana.

The festival is produced by the AEG-owned company Goldenvoice. In 2016 the festival welcomed 99,000, but for 2017 it expanded the space by 20 acres and made room for 25,000 more guests, making this the biggest year yet.
