The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is known to be the stomping grounds for all sorts of people: music junkies, bros, hoes, people with babies, hippie wannabes, drug users, international tourists, lovers of $9 Heinekens and $12 burritos, teenagers pretending they way cooler than they actually are, and even your occasional A-list celebrity.
Stars like Paris Hilton, Vanessa Hudgens, Amber Rose, Kate Bosworth, Katie Perry, Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul, Kellan Lutz and Tony Hawk are just a few familiar faces that were seen at this year’s multiday, multistage open-air festival, or “star-studded event,” and spotted at nearby parties.
Even Leonardo DiCaprio couldn’t help but let loose — a festival goer captured him dancing to MGMT like no one was watching.
But it isn’t surprising to see stars attending a festival that regular folks flock to, especially now that sources have confirmed there are several of them getting paid big bucks just for showing up. Lea Michele reportedly go $20,000 from Lacoste for wearing the brand.
In the end though, celebrities are just like us: they take selfies with their friends, guzzle down beer in the desert heat and tweet about their Coachella experiences just as often as the teenage girl whose parents had to drop her off and pick her up.
All in a day’s work.
