Lana Del Rey Headlines Coachella 2024 Opening Night – Watch Now

Lana Del Rey, the iconic voice that has serenaded us through the highs and lows, took center stage on a Friday night. It was at the 2024 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, nestled in the heart of Indio, California. Her performance marked a significant return, her first since the unforgettable debut back in 2014. Oh, and if you missed it, you can catch a replay of her mesmerizing performance just below.

She kicked things off with “Without You,” a gem from the Born to Die album. But she didn’t stop there. Lana went on a musical journey through her discography, belting out hits from Ultraviolence, Norman Fucking Rockwell!, and the poetic Chemtrails Over the Country Club. Not to mention, tracks from her latest, Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd, also made the cut.

The stage then transformed into a star-studded affair. Jon Batiste stepped out for “Candy Necklace,” followed by Billie Eilish with “Ocean Eyes” and “Video Games.” Jack Antonoff joined in for “Hope Is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me to Have – But I Have It,” adding to the night’s magic.

Interestingly, Lana isn’t just a performer at Coachella; she’s been among us in the crowd too. Back in 2017, she mingled with festival-goers, an experience that inspired her single “Coachella – Woodstock in My Mind.” It’s a nostalgic nod to Father John Misty’s set, which she captured from the audience, blending in yet standing out.

Last year, Lana dropped Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd, an album that snagged her multiple Grammy nods. Despite her critical acclaim and nominations for Album of the Year and Best Alternative Music Album, a Grammy win remains elusive. Yet, her single “A&W” caught the eyes and ears of the Grammy committee, earning a Song of the Year nomination.

But wait, there’s more to Lana than just past triumphs. She’s been teasing us with snippets of new music, like the elusive “Henry, Come On.” And she’s not stopping there; a country album titled Lasso is on the horizon. On Valentine’s Day, she gifted fans with a cover of Irving Berlin’s “Blue Skies,” a classic from the 1920s, showcasing her versatility and deep appreciation for music’s roots.

Here’s a rundown of what Lana graced us with at Coachella:

– “Without You”
– “West Coast”
– “Doin’ Time”
– “Summertime Sadness”
– “Cherry”
– “Pretty When You Cry”
– “Ride”
