Celebrities at Coachella: An Exhaustive Visual History

This weekend, thousands and thousands of people will descend upon Coachella Valley in Indio, California for the highly-anticipated annual music festival. And if the past two decades or so are any indication, there will be plenty of familiar faces. There are certain celebrities who attend almost every year—10-plus-year veteran Vanessa Hudgens chief among them—and the likes of Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber, and Irina Shayk are among the barrage of models who make the trek to the desert. And then there are the unexpected. How Danny DeVito and Clint Eastwood ended up traipsing the grounds, we may never know, but the image of them in attendance are a delight. Here, an exhaustive look back at all the famous faces who have attended Coachella.
