The second day of the repeating Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival kicked off on Saturday April 19, 2014 at the Polo Grounds in Indio, CA. Last week’s festival featured a jam-packed Saturday that was filled with special guests. It was highly speculated what may or may not happen during week two, and which guests may show up. The most anticipated sets of the Saturday festival were Pharrell Williams and NAS, both of whom brought in the star power in weekend 1. Super producer Williams, last week brought artists including Gwen Stefani and Snoop Dogg to perform during his set, while NAS's set featured an appearance by former rival Jay-Z.
Fans expecting star power were not disappointed: Pharrell Williams set featured rapper T.I. performing his hit "Blurred Lines," while Usher sang 'U Don't Have to Call" and Jay Z stayed to sing “Frontin',” “Excuse Me Miss,” “La La La (Exuse Me Miss Again),” and “I Just Wanna Love U (Give it 2 Me).” Nas (who immediately followed Williams), brought on both former Lauryn Hill and former collaborator Damien 'Jr Gong' Marley.
