The 2012 Coachella festival wrapped up Sunday in epic fashion, when after a full day of thick crowds and hot sun 2Pac returned to rock the Coachella crowd.
Well, 2Pac’s hologram did at least, upstaging every human being who performed at the festival, including the incredibly stacked roster of A-list rap talent who came out during Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s headlining set, which included Eminem, 50 Cent and Wiz Khalifa, along with Warren G, Kurupt and Kendrick Lamar.
The 2Pac hologram raises all sorts of questions about mortality in music, morality in entertainment and the afterlife and what it all means. It also raises questions about what’s going to happen next weekend at the second of this year’s two Coachellas; after the 2Pac hologram became the most buzzed-about topic of the fest, does he resurrect himself again next weekend, and do people pretend to be surprised when he does?
Those big questions can be addressed at a later time. For now, here’s some pictures from Day 3 of Coachella (Weekend One). More pics and a big festival wrap-up to come.
