Coachella is officially one of the biggest music festivals in the world amassing more than half a million attendees each year it rolls into town ('town' being Indio, the desert situated ouside Los Angeles)

This year's festival kicked off last week and has featured headline performances from Calvin Harris, Guns N' Roses and LCD Soundsystem.

However, one of Coachella 2016's biggest talking points arrived following the reformation of Ice Cube's hip-hop collective NWA.

Dr. Dre joined the rapper on stage alongside MC Ren and DJ Yella to mark the first appearance of all surviving members in 27 years.

Despite this, the four failed to play any NWA classics, instead opting to perform Dre's track "Still Dre" and 2Pac's "California Love."

The performance was dedicated to musician Prince who passed away last Thursday (21 April) at the age of 57.

Coachella organisers are reportedly planning to host an October festival dedicated to ageing rock Gods which would historically see Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Neil Young and Pink Floyd's Roger Walters perform on the same bill.
