Are music festivals about the artists on the bill or the guests they might bring? Below is a list of just some of the surprise guests who dropped by this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, CA. Together, they could have put on a more popular festival across the street. 

Future (Outkast)
Janelle Monáe (Outkast)
Jay Z (Nas and Pharrell) 
Puff Daddy (Nas)
Lauryn Hill (Nas)
Damian Marley (Nas)
Beyoncé (Solange)
Slash (Motorhead)
Drake (Jhené Aiko)
Childish Gambino (Jhené Aiko)
Debbie Harry (Arcade Fire)
Mary J. Blige (Disclosure) 
Justin Bieber (Chance the Rapper)
Billie Joe Armstrong (The Replacements)
Snoop Dogg (Pharrell)
Tyler the Creator (Pharrell)
Gwen Stefani (Pharrell)
Diplo (Pharrell)
Busta Rhymes (Pharrell)
Puff Daddy (Pharrell)
Nelly (Pharrell)
Usher (Pharrell)
Pusha T (Pharrell)
T.I. (Pharrell)
A$AP Rocky (A$AP Ferg)
E-40 (Girl Talk)

Is this guest business bad for business?

- Sean, Sideshow

"Will fans be disappointed if Janelle Monáe doesn’t drop by the dozens of other festivals Outkast is playing this summer? Yes, and that’s a shame. Waiting for a cameo takes festival-goers out of the experience and turns an already hit-heavy set into a backdrop for celebrity-sightings and gawking instead of, you know, the music. We should be into Outkast for Outkast." — this is a really good point

Claude Monet’s La Seine à Vetheuil, c. 1880

On display in the Portland Museum of Art.

I used to hate Monet, and truth be told Impressionism has never been my favorite movement/period, but sometimes you just need to be reminded that there are things this beautiful in the world. That require no real explanation.
