He’s performed at the Academy Awards, rocked “SNL,” and sat down with Oprah Winfrey, and on Saturday, Pharrell Williams brought some sunshine and superstar friends to the desert for Coachella.

Festivalgoers crowded the Outdoor Stage to see The Neptunes hitmaker perform an hour-long set of hits, from “Frontin'” to “Brand New.” Amidst a heavy dust storm, Pharrell hit the stage at 10:45 p.m., opening with Daft Punk’s “Lose Yourself to Dance” and “Come Get It Bae,” while women in robes danced onstage.

The crowd went wild when Nelly hit the stage to perform their 2002 collaboration “Hot in Herre,” followed by Busta Rhymes and Diddy, who turned up with “Pass the Courvoisier, Part II.”

N.E.R.D. fans were treated to “Lapdance” and “She Wants to Move,” while the “King of the West Coast” Snoop Dogg joined Pharrell for “Drop It Like It’s Hot” and “Beautiful.”

Gwen Stefani, who welcomed her third son in March, made her return to the stage to perform “Hollaback Girl.”

“Look at how amazing the queen looks as she is making her arrival back to the music industry,” said Pharrell of the No Doubt frontwoman. “Make some noise for the queen of awesome!”

The feel-good and fun evening ended with “Get Lucky and “Happy,” while Odd Future’s Tyler, the Creator, Lorde, Diplo, and Busta danced onstage.

While he left fans happy, Pharrell complained that his set had to be altered due to the high winds and that his voice was being affected by the dust (“It turned my voice into a whole ‘nother thing”), but promised that weekend two would be better.
