Coachella 2022: Weekend 1 in photos
Coachella returned for its first edition since 2019 over the weekend (4/15-4/17), with headliners Harry Styles, who brought out Shania Twain for "Man, I Feel Like a Woman" and "You're Still The One," on Friday; Billie Eilish, who brought out Damon Albarn, Pos from De La Soul, and Khalid on Saturday; and The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia on Sunday. If you're wondering what The Weeknd and SMH's co-billed set entailed, it began with SHM, who brought out The Weeknd for their collaborations "Sacrifice" and "How Do I Make You Love Me?" from The Weeknd's new album, and then that segued seamlessly into The Weeknd's set. For his very last song, he brought SHM back out for another of their recent collaborations, "Moth to a Flame" from Swedish House Mafia's just-released debut album.
