Drake and Madonna kissed onstage at the closing day of Coachella Festival's first weekend of 2015 in California yesterday (April 12), while earlier in the day Florence + The Machine frontwoman Florence Welch encouraged the to remove their clothing during her Main Stage set.

Madonna appeared with Drake after he played his own song named for the pop icon. She went on to sing her track 'Human Nature' and the pair kissed before Madonna left the stage – see the video and pictures below.



Earlier, Florence Welch asked the crowd to remove one item of clothing and swing it over their heads during the final song of Florence + The Machine's set, 'Dog Days Are Over'. Many in the audience complied, and Welch then removed her own shirt, performing the rest of the track wearing just her bra.

Three songs from Welch's forthcoming third album, 'How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful' were aired during the set, including the slow-paced title track and singles 'What Kind of Man' and 'Ship To Wreck'. Introducing the latter song, Welch, who was wearing a white trouser suit, commented: "It's about some time off I had in London when I had some drunken parties and trashed my house and said a drunken 'I love you' too soon. Even thought all that disastrous stuff happened I got this song out of it."

Welch's 10-song set also featured her Calvin Harris collaboration 'Sweet Nothing', as well as opener 'What The Water Gave Me', 'Drumming Song' and 'Shake It Out'.

Florence + The Machine played:

'What The Water Gave Me'
'What Kind Of Man'
'Spectrum'
'Sweet Nothing'
'How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful'
'All This And Heaven Too'
'Drumming Song'
'Ship To Wreck'
'Shake It Out'
'Dog Days Are Over'





The final day of the first weekend of the festival also saw a set from Mac DeMarco, who played in the early afternoon, airing ‘Blue Boy’, ‘Cooking Up Something Good’, ‘Let Her Go’ and ‘Viceroy’. ‘I’m A Man’ was dedicated to “all the testosterone filled young men in the audience”.

The Cribs played songs old and new, including ‘Burning For No One’ from their recently released sixth album ‘For All My Sisters’. “It's good to see some people dancing,” said Ryan Jarman during their set. “I know it's Coachella and you don't want to ruin your hair and make-up.”

Ryan Adams opened his set by exclaiming “Yay, sad music in the desert. Let's sad up this desert.” He then played recent single ‘Gimme Something Good’. On chatty form, he later joked to photographers and cameramen in a cherry picker above the stage, “Strangely we're still higher than you.” On a stage adorned with full size retro video games machines and larger than life prop amps, he ran through a host of classic songs, including ‘When The Stars Go Blue’, ‘Oh My Sweet Carolina’ and ‘Come Pick Me Up’.

Marina And The Diamonds, St Vincent, Jenny Lewis, Philip Selway and Built To Spill also played yesterday. Coachella returns this weekend (April 17-19) for a second event.
