Coachella is one of the first major music festivals of the year and it was no surprise that Los Angeles and Las Vegas socialites were keen to be seen at it.
Paris and sister Nicky Hilton were spotted dancing in the VIP section, while California Gurl Katy mingled with the main crowd to watch Sleigh Bells.
High School Musical actress Vanessa opted for hippy chic for the occasion, wearing 70s-inspired loose-fitting floral trousers and a floppy sunhat, along with the obligatory celeb sunglasses.
Drew Barrymore, Usher, Dita Von Teese, Ashley Greene and even Danny DeVito were among the other stars relaxing at the festival.
Any celebs heading to Coachella today will be able to see Arcade Fire, Elbow, Mumford & Sons, Delta Spirit, Scissor Sisters and Two Door Cinema Club, while Sunday’s bill features Kanye West, The Strokes, Duran Duran, Ellie Goulding and PJ Harvey.
