UPDATED with a few more pics from the weekend after the jump.
The Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival draws dozens of bands, a couple hundred thousand fans and a passel of celebrities to the edge of the Mojave Desert every April, and this weekend the ritual is repeating itself.
The biggest headliners — Arcade Fire, Kanye West, The Strokes — are yet to perform; their sets are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday nights, and they’ll probably bring out a good-sized crop of celebs. But several famous names are in for the whole weekend, including Katy Perry, who took in the Sleigh Bells’ set on Friday night (April 15).

]]>Kirsten Dunst got into the spirit of the festival on Saturday night. Why so serious, Rihanna? Here’s how big Coachella is: Clint Eastwood shows up. Also? Danny DeVito was all over the place Friday. We don’t know why either, but here he is getting huggy with Robyn … And here he is on stage with Christian Jacobs of the Aquabats. Usher mingled with the crowd Friday afternoon. Lauryn Hill — excuse us, Ms. Lauryn Hill — took the stage Friday afternoon and performed what was my most accounts a pretty strong set. And, oh yeah, Paris and Nicky Hilton were there. Coachella continues through Sunday.
