Coachella Music Festival with Special Guest Tupac and Mulberry, Lacoste and Armani Exchange/T-Mobile Parties! Xx


 At This Year's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California

Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg resurrected late rapper 
Tupac Shakur as an onstage hologram.



The life-sized figure of Shakur in 
his classic acid-wash jeans 
and Timberland boots. 
 appeared on stage and said "What up, Coachella?!" 

It is more than 15 years since he died in 1996 at age 25, in a shooting.

Watch the set on You Tube below



The Tupac hologram performed 2 
of Amerikaz Most Wanted  
"Come With me" and "Gangsta Party" with Snoop Dogg,
and then joined Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre in a performance of "Hail Mary" 
 before disappearing into thin air.

The atmosphere was electric - the audience was stunned 
by the mixture of CGI techniques 
and actual original video of Tupac performing
 to create a stunningly life-like image of the late
much beloved Tupac Shakur who performed alongside Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg
see below

According to TMZ, Tupac's mother Afeni Shakur


watched the whole thing live on the internet and thought 
the resurrection was amazing, though of course
bittersweet.  
Dr. Dre had asked Afeni for approval and Dre 
had made a donation to the Tupac's charity
The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation.

 Eminem performed
 'I Need A Doctor', 'Forget About Dre' 
and 'Till I Collapse' with Dr Dre, 




50 Cent with Snoop Dogg rapped 'In Da Club'

                                      Nate Dogg, who died last year aged 41, 
was remembered by Snoop and Dr Dre 
through a montage of photographs and 
a performance of 'Ain't No Fun', featuring Warren G and Kurupt,
 all of whom had worked with Nate Dogg over their careers.



Dre and Snoop also brought on rising hip hop stars 
such as Kendrick Lamar and Wiz Khalifa,

who performed 'Young, Wild and Free'.

As Gia Coppola and Natalie Love say on Vogue.com 
in their write up of Mulberry's poolside BBQ at the Parker Hotel

'For those of us who grew up in southern California, 
nothing signifies the beginning of summer quite 
like the Coachella Valley Music Festival, 
with the chance to see so many of our favorite bands in one place'

the Brands 40th anniversary Party

was the inspiration for Mulberry's Fall Winter 2012 Collection

 Inflatable monsters and huge beach balls floated 
in the pool and were on the lawn.

According to the LA Times Blog The Lacoste Party got so
Wild and Free that A Sheriff's Deputy

people who had just arrived and would get off the Driveway

"If you guys don't get off the freaking asphalt, 
I'm going to shut it down!" "I'm not kidding."
