Kanye West performs at Coachella

To those not in the know, Coachella is a music festival, namely the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. It's a 3 day Festival, which primarily was headlined by altenative rock, indie and electronic music. Hip Hop and rap has slowly crept into the line up over the years, and continues to do so, much to the growing cries of the festival selling out.

The event has several stages/tents set-up throughout the grounds, each playing live music continuously. The main stages are: Coachella Stage, Outdoor Theatre, Gobi Tent, Mojave Tent, and the Sahara Tent (2006 also saw the addition of a smaller Oasis Dome).
Now Given this blogs particular bias toward Hip Hop, as well as, what's been described as an annoying slant toward all things Kanye West. It's no surprise then that I'm going to post the full Kanye West Set.

My only wish is that i could have been there. Kanye closed the Festival out (It doesn't get more headline than that) on on Sunday Night, with a near2 hour performance. Despite being some 20 minutes late. Kanye West gave it a full effort. Surrounded a troupe of dancers, and a frescoed backdrop of mythological creatures. Kanye West, performed singles from his now burgeoning catalogue of hits, dipping into the classics, and still reworking the newer hits to give them that special feel for the live show. Man, I get goosebumps watching this shit. Can't wait for him, to make his way down here.
