Lauryn Hill Made a Surprise Guest Appearance at Coachella

Talk about #FestivalGoals!

Published April 16, 2017

Although many fans are still in their feelings that Beyoncé had to reschedule her headlining duties until next year's Coachella, one surprise guest appearance in particular certainly helped lessen the blow.

Last night (April 15) none other than Lauryn Hill came out during DJ Snake's set, surprising fans with an incredible rendition of some of her hit classics.

During the collaborative performance, the iconic recording artist performed some of the Fugees' most celebrated songs ("Ready or Not" and "Killing Me Softly") as well as some material from her solo catalog ("Lost Ones.")

Hill has previously graced the annual festival with her legendary presence, most recently coming out during Nas' set.

The emcee has spent a majority of the year during her MLH Caravan: A Diaspora Calling! tour and needless to say, fans are all the way here for her live performances.

DJ Snake also took to Instagram to reflect on the evening and express his gratitude to Ms. Lauryn Hill and Migos for helping make his set so special.

"Without challenges there is nothing great," the DJ shared. "Last night a great moment was achieved. Greatness happened. Thank you to the Migos and to the legendary Ms Lauryn Hill for helping me create an experience for you guys."

Talk about #FestivalGoals.
