The third day of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival featured perhaps weekend's most eclectic line-up. One small example: on the main-stage, wedged between two dance parties (Arcade Fire and Calvin Harris), was old-school Coachella veteran Beck (who performed at the very first festival in 1999). Not that this mattered to 50,000+ fans in attendance, most of whom came simply to dance to whatever was happening in front of them. The biggest draws of the day were Lana Del Rey, Rudimental, Disclosure, and Arcade Fire. Like with previous days, the rock, indie, nostalgic acts - Motorhead, Toy Dolls, and Neutral Milk Hotel, to name a few - drew some of the fests lighter crowds.
Again, as with the second day of the festival, the special guests were aplenty. Arcade Fire brought along Debbie Harry of Blondie for a cover of "Heart of Glass," while Motorhead brought ex-Guns N' Roses ax-man Slash, and Jhene Aiko surprised fans by introducing Drake to the stage.
