The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia will headline Sunday’s final day of the Coachella Music & Arts Festival, which has largely gone on without a hitch since its return following a two-year break during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Other scheduled performers at the Empire Polo Club Sunday include Vince Staples, Doja Cat, Fatboy Slim, Jamie xx, Belly and FINNEAS, the brother and songwriting partner of Saturday’s headliner, Billie Eilish.

The Indio Police Department, said there have not been any significant arrests or traffic incidents during the festival this weekend, or last.

On Saturday, Eilish teamed up with special guest, Paramore lead singer Hayley Williams to sing that group’s hit “Misery Business” and later joined her brother to perform “Your Power” from her latest album, “Happier Than Ever.”

Toward the end of her set, Eilish draped a Ukrainian flag over her shoulder to show support for the country as it continues to battle an invasion by Russia.

Other Saturday performers included rappers Megan Thee Stallion and Big Sean, singer-composer Danny Elfman, Disclosure, English synthpop band Hot Chip and the hip-hop group Brockhampton, which has announced that Saturday’s performance will be their last after 12 years together.

The parade of superstar guest performers during the festival’s second week also included Friday headliner Harry Styles joining Lizzo to perform the disco classic “I Will Survive” and the song “What Makes You Beautiful,” which was a hit for Styles’ former group, One Direction.

Also creating a buzz was Compton-born rapper Kendrick Lamar, who made a unannounced appearance during his cousin Baby Keem’s set to perform “Vent” and the Grammy-winning track “Family Ties.”

As the festival comes to a close Sunday, temperatures will be in the upper 80s to mid 90s, nearly 10 degrees warmer than on Saturday. Strong winds will continue to be a factor with gusts of up to 30 miles per hour in the morning, dropping to about 20 miles per hour by afternoon.
