Following the death of Prince on April 21, music fans were mourning the loss of the legendary artist. Many have been paying tribute to the influential rock star, including those at Coachella 2016 Weekend 2, where everything that could be purple was at the Empire Polo Club. From the palm trees around the venue lit in purple lights at night to fans placing gifts under the Coachella 2008 poster (the year that Prince headlined) and DJs mixing in his hits in the DJ tents, Prince's life and legacy were celebrated at Coachella 2016.
Several acts performed covers of Prince songs, including Sufjan Stevens and Gallant performing "Purple Rain" and Friday headliner LCD Soundsystem performing "Controversy." Check out our videos of those performances below, and we're looking forward to more Prince tributes during the rest of Coachella 2016 Weekend 2.
