This weekend marked the return of Hip-Hop’s most beloved duo, OutKast. The two hit the stage to close out the first night of Coachella, bringing out guests such as Janelle Monae, Sleepy Brown, Future and Killer Mike (who didn’t get to perform, due to their set being cut short).
All of the buzz around this highly anticipated had us thinking, what could the festival pull off for next year? With that being said, here’s 10 Acts We’d Love to See Reunite At Coachella 2015.
1. The Fugees
The last time we saw the New Jersey trio grace the stage together was in September 2004 for Dave Chappelle’s Block Party. After some seemingly uncomfortableness with touring closer to the start of the decade, Lauryn Hill seems to have found comfort in touring once again. Although this might be a long shot, we really hope to see this happen some day.
After proving that they’ve still got it during a recent 20th year anniversary show (which featured surprise guest appearances from Lorde, Joan Jett and others), could this mean that (what’s left of) the band will go on tour again sometime in the near future? Probably not. However, we wouldn’t put it past Goldenvoice to be able to come up with a one-time, festival Nirvana date at next year’s Coachella festival.
3. Daft Punk
boys bots are no stranger to the Indio festival, having played Coachella back in ’06. The Grammy performance helped reinforce the fact that we need to see this happen! Coachella is a festival that loves to create memories, a reunion like this would definitely be one for the books.
4. Destiny’s Child
Superbowl 2013 came with some nostalgia when Kelly and Michelle joined Beyonce for an unforgettable halftime show. As happy as we are with their respective solo projects (OK, maybe not Michelle…), we need some Bootylicious back in our lives!
It’s always sad when beef gets in the way of making/performing good music. When asked in 2012 in a regards to a potential Oasis reunion, Noel Gallagher responded “Not even if all the starving children in the world depended on it.” Ouch. Hopefully, Liam and Noel could work out their differences one day…
6. The White Stripes
Jack White is about to tear up the festival scene with his upcoming tour but it doesn’t feel quite the same as to when he links up with former wife Meg. Whenever Seven Nation Army gets played at a festival (whether it’s a DJ or during Jack’s solo set), the crowd never ceases to go wild. We can only image how crazy a show during Coachella of next year would be!
Everybody that went to Coachella 2012 should already know about how Dr. Dre knows how to put on an incredible show. Unfortunately, the good doctor has not done a public show since then (only corporate events, guest appearances etc.). With the help of Ice Cube, MC Ren, DJ Yella and maybe even an Eazy-E hologram, we’re sure that Coachella would experience yet another unforgettable performance.
8. Led Zeppelin
Rumours have been swirling about this one for years but Robert Plant seems to want nothing to do with it. Does this one even need more explanation? We’re talking about one of the greatest groups in Rock history!
9. Pink Floyd
Above is a photo from Roger Water’s The Wall tour, said to be one of the greatest in history. In fact, Waters headlined Coachella 2008, closing the festival with a BANG! This is only one member, imagine the entire band back together? Fortunately, this one seems more probable to actually happen, as drummer Nick Mason has expressed his interest in reuniting once again.
10. The Remaining Beatles
Funny enough, Paul McCartney appeared at Coachella this weekend, dancing onstage during Girl Talk’s set (above is a photo of him and Bandz A Make Her Dance producer Mike Will Made It in the desert. They should make a strip club anthem together). Without a doubt, getting Paul and Ringo together would be just about the biggest thing the festival could ever pull off.
