But for South Asian music fans, this year’s festival is one for the books as Pakistani singer and composer Ali Sethi and Indian singer and actor Diljit Singh Dosanjh make their Coachella debut.

On Saturday, April 15, amid a cloud of smoke, Dosanjh took to the stage wearing an all-black outfit, sunglasses, a black turban, and yellow gloves.
