The Rundown: What You Missed At Week One Of Coachella

The Rundown: What You Missed At Week One Of Coachella

It's 'chella lit.

Festival season has officially kicked off! This weekend was the first week of the Coachella Arts and Music Festival in Indio, California. So what exactly happened this weekend in the desert? Here is your catch up.

Day 1

Radiohead battled the machines and lost

Friday night's headliner, Radiohead, had to overcome technical difficulties during their performance. After a full day of hassle free festivities, the sound system for Radiohead's stage gave out midway during their performance. The sound continued to drop out throughout the performance except on the stage itself, leaving Radiohead completely unaware of what was happening. Radiohead exited the stage while the technical issues were resolved, and later returned blaming "aliens" for the issues. However, midway through their set, the sound system crashed again and Radiohead had to leave the stage once more. The technical issues were eventually resolved.

Day 2

Future Brings Out Drake, Ty Dolla Sign, and Migos.

Another memorable performance goes to Future, who brought out guests performers Drake, Ty Dolla Sign, and Migos. The audience was hyped with energy with performances of "Jumpman" and "Bad and Boujee." And the accompanying visuals brought the Sahara Tent to full life. Overall, Future became one of the most memorable performers of the weekend.

Lady Gaga Makes History

Saturday night, Lady Gaga made Coachella history as the first female headliner. The performance was originally granted to Beyonce, however, she was unable to attended due to her recent pregnancy. This is the Lady Gaga's second largest performance this year, as she already performed the Super Bowl Halftime Show sparking a frenzy of internet memes. Lady Gaga did not feature any musical guests during her performance, but nevertheless, she still killed it. Lady Gaga also debuted her latest single "The Cure" during her performance.

Day 3

The last, but certainly not least, performer of the weekend was Kendrick Lamar. Kendrick Lamar electrified the Coachella stage with the latest music off of his new album "DAMN," which he released this past Friday. Lamar also brought out guest performers Future, ScHoolBoy Q, and Travis Scott. Kendrick Lamar took on a disciplined ego as he dressed in a kung fu inspired attire.

With all of this madness in the opening week, who know's what will happen this weekend as the Coachella Arts and Music Festival comes to a close.

What Your Hogwarts House Says About You

Get yourself sorted and find out where you belong in the world of witchcraft and wizardry.

Sorting at Hogwarts is a big deal. Being sorted into a house is essentially being placed into a family while you are away from home learning about witchcraft and wizardry. Your house is made up of the people you will live with, go to classes with, play Quidditch with and everything in between. You basically spend 24/7 with them. Your Hogwarts house is your home away from home.

When you get sorted into a house, it is based on your personality traits. The people in your house are typically like-minded people who display the same characteristics as you.

When you’re a first year at Hogwarts, the minute you set foot in the castle you are swept into the Great Hall to have the ancient Sorting Hat placed on your head. This Sorting Hat decides which “family” you’ll be spending your seven years with.

For some, it is very obvious which house they will be in, due to certain personality traits they possess. For others, they may exemplify traits that fit a multitude of houses and are uncertain where they may end up.

To find out where you belong, you can take the official "Harry Potter" Sorting Hat quiz at For all you muggles out there, these are the characteristics that the houses possess and what your house says about you:

Gryffindor: The house of the brave, loyal, courageous, adventurous, daring and chivalrous. Those who stand up for others are typically Gryffindors. Brave-hearted is the most well-known Gryffindor characteristic, and Gryffindors are also known for having a lot of nerve.

Gryffindors are people who hold a multitude of qualities alongside the ones listed, making them a very well-rounded house. People who are Gryffindors are often people who could fit nicely into another house but choose to tell the sorting hat they want Gryffindor (there's that bravery). "Do what is right" is the motto Gryffindors go by.

Being a Gryffindor means that you're probably the adventurous and courageous friend, and you are usually known for doing what is right.

Ravenclaw: The house is known for their wisdom, intelligence, creativity, cleverness and knowledge. Those who value brains over brawn can be found here. Ravenclaws often tend to be quite quirky as well. "Do what is wise" is the motto they strive to follow.

Though Ravenclaws can be know-it-alls sometimes, they most likely do know what the wisest decision is.

If you are known for being the quirky friend, the smartest in the group or just great at making wise decisions, you're definitely a Ravenclaw.

Hufflepuff: This house values hard work, dedication, fair play, patience, and loyalty. Hufflepuff’s are known for being just and true. "Do what is nice" is their motto.

Hufflepuff is known as the “nice house” and believes strongly in sparing peoples feelings and being kind. This is not to say that Hufflepuffs aren't smart or courageous. Hufflepuffs just enjoy making others happy and tend to be more patient towards people.

If you ever find that you are too nice for your own good and cannot bear to hurt someone’s feelings, congratulations, you are a Hufflepuff.

Slytherin: This is the house of the cunning, prideful, resourceful, ambitious, intelligent, and determined. Slytherin's love to be in charge and crave leadership. "Do what is necessary" is the motto of this house.

Slytherin is a fairly well-rounded house, similar to the other houses. They are loyal to those that are loyal to them just as Gryffindors are and are intelligent as Ravenclaws.

Slytherin house as a whole is not evil, despite how many dark wizards come out of this house. That is merely based on the choices of those wizards (so if your friend is a Slytherin, don’t judge, it doesn’t mean they are mean people). Slytherins do, however, have a tendency to be arrogant or prideful. This is most likely due to the fact that everyone in Slytherin is exceedingly proud to be there.

What Hogwarts house you’re in says a lot about the person you are, the traits you possess and how you may act in some situations. But in the end, your house is really just your home that is always there for you. Always.
