The [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Arcade Fire[/lastfm] made fighting the blistering heat of Coachella Day 2 completely worth it.

Not only did they have over 70,000 fans singing along to every song but they hired an enormous crane hoist 1200 internally lit balloons above the crowd. Just before their encore, they gave the cue and it rained a rainbow of colors from the moonlit sky. As the mood and tempo changed, so did the colors of the giant orbs.

It was the perfect way to end an incredible performance.
