Arcade Fire brought out TV host Jonathan Ross as well as two people dressed as Daft Punk as they closed Coachella Festival 2014 last night (April 20).

Consequence of Sound reports that Arcade Fire's set began with the two men, who were neither the same height or weight as Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, appearing on stage in the same outfits Daft Punk wore to this year's Grammy Awards and begin to play 'Get Lucky.'

Fan shot footage shows frontman Win Butler interrupt the rendition of 'Get Lucky' and asking, "What the fuck is happening?" He also reportedly referred to the two men in helmets as Phat Dunk. See below for a video shot by fans plus pictures.

Meanwhile, chat show host Jonathan Ross was also at Coachella with the Canadian band. His voice is heard before the song 'You Already Know' on Arcade Fire's 2013 album 'Reflektor' and Ross tweeted pictures from his time with the band as they closed the festival.

Elsewhere at Coachella, the second weekend of the US festival maintained the frequent level of guest stars from the first weekend (April 11-13) with both Haim and MGMT appearing on stage with Kid Cudi as well as Pharrell bringing out guests including Jay-Z and Pusha T during his set. Lauryn Hill also made a guest appearance, joining Nas during his set.

As previously reported, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong appeared with The Replacements with the US band's Paul Westerberg playing most of the set sitting on a sofa, having suffered a back injury.
