Calvin Harris Brings Out Two HUGE Guests at Coachella [WATCH]
Calvin Harris became the first DJ in Coachella history to close out the mainstage as one of the three premier headliners last night. The Scottish DJ made the most of it with, unveiling his new touring production show and delivering a stellar set that included some very special guests.
Calvin's stage design team had to secure every single Solaris Flare lighting fixture available in the United States, making the new production the largest concentration of light ever used in any show.
Head of touring at Three Six Zero Paul Macrae said, "We wanted to deliver an innovative and immersive show that compliments Calvin’s performance. It was very important for him to maintain his DJ workflow rather than playing back a time coded track. We gave him this flexibility along with pinpoint timing on all lighting and video cues, something rarely achieved."
"I’m very proud of the new stage show we've put together and couldn’t be more thankful to everyone who stayed out to party last night." - Calvin
The biggest surprise of the set was a surprise appearance from Detroit rapper Big Sean. The two had the crowd going bonkers with a performance of multiple songs including Big Sean's 2015 smash hit "I Don't Fuck with You."
But before Big Sean broke it down, Rihanna took the stage to perform "We Found Love." The singer made a surprise cameo during Calvin Harris' 2012 Coachella in the Sahara TentSahara Tent, so it was only appropriate the two reunited for Calvin's first set closing out the mainstage. And while it was not a huge surprise, it was welcomed by the crowd with an eruption of screams.
Of course, we can't forget guest John Newman, who joined Calvin on stage for a live rendition of their hit song "Blame." Check out clips of these three memorable moments below, and then stay tuned for more Coachella day three highlights!
