Weather warning issued for Coachella 2018 weekend two campers

A weather warning has been issued for any campers heading to Coachella 2018 for the second weekend of the festival.

Last weekend saw Beyonce own the weekend, while Eminem also delivered a star-studded headline performance and The Weeknd treated the desert to some new material. The likes of St Vincent, Aurora and Cardi B also delivered stellar sets.

Fans heading to the Valley for the second consecutive weekend of the festival however, have been warned to delay their arrival if they’re planning to camp.

The National Weather Service have warned of severe high winds, leading to the opening of the campground being delayed from this morning until 3am on Friday April 20.

Winds of up to 35 mph and isolated gusts of up to 70 mph are expected until the early hours of Friday, with less than a mile of visibility at times due blowing dust and sand.

Meanwhile, yesterday it was announced that Marilyn Manson would be attending Coachella this weekend to join the band X Japan on stage – after he revealed that he had previously been banned from the festival.

Manson tweeted that the group’s drummer and leader Yoshiki had extended the invitation, before teasing: “You don’t want to miss this one”.

He also suggested that he was once barred from the California festival, saying: “I never thought I would play at a festival I was banned from”.
