Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has seen some of the most exciting new artists and the most revered established acts perform to stoked crowds all weekend and given the sheer magnitude of acclaim some of this years performers are routinely given, the  it comes as little surprise to know that the festival was teeming with famous faces in the crowd as well as on stage. The festival came to an end last night (April 14) with Sunday headliners and California natives the Red Hot Chili Peppers providing the sweet icing to go atop what was a marvellous weekend.

The festival line up offered such diverse musical stylings as The Stone Roses, Wu Tang Clan, New Order, Phoenix and TNGHT and there was plenty more on offer to see for the regular punters, although most of the famous faces around for the festival kept to themselves in the backstage area. In the most unsuspecting of places to slow down with her partying ways, Lindsay Lohan was spotted on Friday night in the backstage area awaiting Blur’s 10 p.m. set whilst she minded her 16-year-old brother, Cody - this is a side to Lohan that we don't see enough and frankly one that we need to see more of.

Elsewhere, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were spotted drinking cups of Gatorade (we think thats what it was) together during Jurassic 5’s reunion set at the Outdoor Stage on Friday too. Over the course of the weekend, True Blood star Alexander Skarsgard, George Clooney's missus Stacey Kiebler and Inglorious Basterds star Diane Kruger were all spotted in the VIP section. Leonardo Dicaprio, Jared Leto, Rita Ora, Danny DeVito, Kelly Rowland, Clint Eastwood, Tony Hawk, Paris and Nicky Hilton, Rumer Willis and even Hilary Duff showed their faces over the weekend too. And what a weekend it was.
