Here Are 15 Years Of Coachella Festival Posters

O(+>, Paul McCartney, Snoop Dogg, Madonna & MORE!

The second weekend of the 2014 edition of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival kicks off today and in honor of the music fest’s 15th year, I present to you all of the official posters that have been released listing all of the performers who have played Coachella since 1999. Back in the day, Coachella used to be a two-day festival but because of its growing popularity, it has since been expanded to a three-day festival … which is repeated over two different weekends. But, Coachella wasn’t successful from the get go. The first Coachella festival in 1999 did not make a profit … so it was cancelled in 2000. It resumed in 2001 and has been making LOADS of money ever since. Artists like Björk, The Cure, O(+> (aka Prince), Madonna, Oasis, Beastie Boys, Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode and The Killers have all headlined Coachella over its 15 year history. Click thru the gallery presented here to look back at all the acts that have played Coachella up to this weekend. Are any of you heading out to Indio, CA for weekend 2 of Coachella 2014? If so, have the best time ever!

Watch: Beyoncé Jumps On Stage During Solange’s Performance At Coachella

Sister Sister

Beyoncé was not scheduled to perform at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival this weekend but that didn’t stop her from jumping on stage during her sister Solange‘s performance at the music fest last night. Altho Bey didn’t actually perform, she did come out on stage to dance alongside Solange at the end of her performance of Losing You … and they looked cute as Hell! Jay Z, too, surprised the folks at Coachella by appearing on stage for a few seconds during Nas‘s performance yesterday but he also did not perform at all.
