Photo Highlights from Coachella 2012

Weekend one of Coachella — the unofficial kick-off of the summer music festival season — has come and gone with the requisite reports of drug-fueled crazy dancers and #coachellaproblems. But the big news from the concert grounds seems to be that headliners Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg were joined on stage by a hologram version of Tupac Shakur, who then proceeded to rap “2 of Americaz Most Wanted” along with Snoop; Radiohead’s two-hour set was totally packed, but worth fighting the crowds to see; and the celebrity-watching opportunities were even more fruitful than they normally are. (Who would have thought David Hasselhoff even know what Coachella was?) Click through our photo gallery to check out shots from some of the weekend’s best performances, and if you were there, be sure to let us know what you thought in the comments.
