Arcade Fire headlined Coachella, it was awesome, there were light up balloons! (pics, video, setlist)

“If you’d told us in 2002 that we’d be headlining Coachella w/ Animal Collective playing before us I would have told you, you were full of shit” – Win Butler

Arcade Fire headlined the main Coachella Stage Saturday night (their third and biggest time playing the annual California fest), and as if their sound and crowd size and setlist wasn’t impressive and massive enough, a surprise came during “Wake Up,” their last pre-encore song. Courtesy of Creators Project, who promised something big via a press release earlier in the day, lots of white balloons descended upon the crowd. But they weren’t just any balloons. Honestly I don’t know how they worked, but they lit up and changed colors as you can see in the pictures above above and below. And they stayed lit up during the four-song encore that helped close out the second of three hot days of Coachella 2011.

More pictures from their set (more coming from David later too), and some videos and Arcade Fire’s full setlist, below…
