Coachella live chat: Weekend 2 preview

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival kicked off last weekend, with fans traveling to Indio, Calif.,  from all over the world to watch their favorite acts perform -- or perhaps just to see and be seen at the several dozen pool parties happening off-site.

Musical highlights from the first weekend were plentiful -- Big Boi, Ellie Goulding and Chvrches were just a few, along with surprise appearances by Diddy, Jay Z, Snoop Dogg and even Justin Bieber. And the food and fashion of Coachella provided even more standout moments.
