Coachella: Top Five Acts at the Sahara Tent

1. Calvin Harris
Sunday, April 15
The Sahara tent was already as packed as ever on Sunday night with huge LED lights and screens adding to the excitement of this massive dance party. As soon as Rihanna came on stage and surprised everyone the crowd went wild and absolutely lost it. Katy Perry was with her getting the crowd excited as Riri sang "We Found Love" and "Where Have You Been." These collaborations just go to show how big the EDM crossovers really are. Calvin Harris has really blown up in the US with hits like "Awooga," "Bounce" and "Feel So Close." Collaborating with Rihanna and then having her surprise everyone with a performance at one of the biggest music festivals in the US just skyrocket his popularity. It was the perfect example of how music can bring different people together and be enjoyed just the same. Even Katy Perry enjoyed it getting as wild as everyone else, crowd surfing near the end.
