The first weekend of Coachella 2018 may be coming to an end, but memories of epic performances and parties will last forever.
On Friday, the stars started flooding into the Palm Springs, California, area for the annual music festival, which featured headliners The Weeknd, Beyoncé and Eminem.
And since it’s not all just about the music — celebrities like Rihanna, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kendall and Kylie Jenner and more hit up exclusive parties to get in some pampering, catch up with friends and dance the night away.
Kicking off the weekend with a bang, Rachel Zoe hosted her fourth annual ZOEasis Style Retreat at Coachella on Friday. She welcomed guests including Olivia Culpo, Paris Hilton, Whitney Port and Victoria Justice to her Moroccan-themed bash at the Parker Palm Springs. Lisa Rinna and Amelia Hamlin made the event a fun mother-daughter outing. Brody Jenner’s fiancée Kaitlynn Carter showed up wearing the same dress as Zoe, and the ladies posed together for a festive who-wore-it-best moment. While at the party, guests enjoyed cocktails using Belvedere Vodka’s new flavor Ginger Zest and had the chance to get their ears pierced and hands painted with henna.
Later on in the night, Sean “Diddy” Combs was spotted partying at the nANA jUDY Cabana with his girlfriend, singer Cassie Ventura, while at CombsFest — an event hosted by his sons, Christian and Justin. The party featured a high-energy performance by Lil Wayne, who had a blast performing and couldn’t stop thanking the fans in the crowd for the support. Lil Wayne’s daughter, Reginae Carter, hung out on the side of the stage for the entire duration of her dad’s set and could be seen excitedly dancing and rapping along to all of his hits.
