Motorhead, Queens of the Stone Age, AFI + More Bring Heavy Music to Hipster Coachella Fest

Motorhead
Charles Epting for Loudwire

Weekend one at Coachella is in the books. The famed Southern California music oasis drew more than 90,000 fans who endured blistering daytime temps, a surreal Saturday night sandstorm and a wide buffet of sonic treats. Sure, the onetime indie fest now features as much hip-hop and EDM as it does anything else. But it's not like there wasn't any metal or hard rock buried in the sand. You just had to know where to look and thankfully, the headbangers in the house were able to catch ultra-solid sets by the likes of Motorhead, Queens of the Stone Age and a host of others.
