The Carters couldn’t get enough of Coachella. After their surprise appearances last week, Beyoncé and Jay Z returned to the desert for weekend two. The stylish couple was decked out in their finest festival attire—Jay wore a leather motorcycle jacket and Jordans, while Mrs. Carter kept cool in cutoff shorts and an Off-White camouflage jacket.

They made it to the Sahara Tent in time to catch Skrillex’s set. Jay donned a ski mask and Bey filled her water bottle with D’Usse while wildin’ out in the front row. Solange joined the family affair, bringing her son Julez to watch Skrillex perform his hits and remix “Drunk in Love.”

“Thank you Skrillex for making my son the happiest most crunk child alive,” said Solange. “He’s been asking me to see him live for a year now, and last night it’s safe to say his mind was blown!!! lol.”

Earlier in the evening, Hov joined Pharrell onstage to perform a medley of their hits. He also kicked it with Nas, who he performed “Dead Presidents” with last weekend.

While Blue Ivy didn’t make the trip, Bey had some fun with her nephew and caught up with Usher backstage.
