While Coachella has the same lineup of performers both weekends, there are some slight differences between weekend 1 and 2. Make note of these facts!
1. Different set times.
Coachella announced on April 18 that the weekend 2 set times will be slightly different.
Cardi B will be playing at 5:45 p.m., so 15 minutes earlier than her weekend 1 set time. In addition, the first act of the day will not go on until noon rather at 11 a.m.
Eminem will be starting his set at 10:15 p.m. instead of 11pm on Sunday.
2. Different special guests.
Weekend 1 of Coachella had so many special guests that it seems like it will be hard to top it. Kendrick Lamar, Rita Ora, Chance the Rapper, 50 Cent, G-Eazy... the list goes on!
However, just because there were so many guests during weekend 1 doesn't mean that these performers won't have surprises planned for weekend 2. For example, blackbear is already teasing that his set this weekend will include "lots of guests."
Will he bring out Tinashe? 2 Chainz? We'll have to wait and see.

3. Most likely... no Destiny's Child.
Last weekend's special performance by Destiny's Child was one for the books, and we don't expect there to be a repeat of the iconic reunion. But hey — never say never! We'd love to see Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland come out again to play a medley of the group's biggest hits.
4. No live stream .
While Coachella won't be live streaming weekend 2, there may be high-quality videos of some sets posted on their YouTube channel right after the festival!
5. Better operation!
Coachella is often better regulated and under control by weekend 2. By this point, all of the security guards, employees working the gates and parking attendants have worked out the kinks. Weekend 2 usually runs more smoothly in terms of operation!
For example, gates were set to open at 11 a.m. on weekend 1 of Coachella. However, according to the Press-Enterprise, festival goers waited in the sun for nearly 2 extra hours before the grounds were ready for attendees to enter. To fix this issue, the first set has been pushed back to 12 p.m. for weekend 2!
Even with the slight differences to make note of, weekend 2 of Coachella is set to be just as heart-pounding, exciting and surprising as weekend 1. We can't wait to see what lies ahead for this weekend!
