“Glee” star Chris Colfer appeared on “Ellen” on Thursday — and they spent the first several minute of the interview talking about Coachella.
Ellen — who flashed a photo of the famous ferris wheel and the Coachella snail on the screen behind them — asked Colfer about his first time at the festival.

During the first weekend of Coachella, half of Hollywood shows up in the Coachella Valley to hit the show or the associated parties. At Stagecoach, though, the celebrities are more likely to be on stage than in the crowd.

“We’re told that when Kutcher went to greet the woman, security intervened and shoved the two of them … and chaos ensued,” according to TMZ.

Trace Adkins, Hank Williams Jr. and Toby Keith, the final three acts Friday on the primary Mane Stage, were friends with George Jones, who died Friday and was honored through the day.
But, by the evening, the Stagecoach party was on.
Adkins planned his Stagecoach appearance with the thoroughness of one of his projects on “Celebrity Apprentice,” rocking the audience with “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” and showing his true country colors on the plaintive “This Ain’t No Love Song.”
This year I got a little brave – I decided to go to both Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festivals weekends.
For a split second I thought it might be too much, but it wasn’t.
Each weekend was such a different experience and had its own special moments.
