Over two weekends of April 12th and 19th this year, thousands and thousands of people will descend upon Coachella Valley in Indio, California for the highly-anticipated music festival. And if the past two decades or so are any indication, there will be plenty of familiar faces. 2024’s weekend one alone drew everyone from A-list couples like Rihanna and A$AP Rocky to Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift to Coachella first-timers like Ice Spice and Barry Keoghan.

There are certain celebrities who attend almost every year—10-plus-year veteran Vanessa Hudgens chief among them—and the likes of Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber, and Irina Shayk are always among the barrage of models who make the trek to the desert. And then there are the unexpected. How Danny DeVito and Clint Eastwood ended up traipsing the grounds, we may never know, but the image of them in attendance are a delight. Here, before weekend two kicks off in a few days time, an exhaustive look back at all the famous faces who have attended Coachella.

Presenting perhaps the most unexpected pairing in Coachella’s two-decade-plus history. DeVito appears to be a fan of the late singer, because he posed for a series of photos with her when he somehow found himself at the festival in 2007.
