In its final hurrah, the third day of Coachella’s 2016 attempt ultimately rode its highs and lows far into the Colorado Desert sunset.

Friday was a wild day for SXSW goers everywhere. The afternoon came and went without issue, but when the evening started rolling in, a nasty storm came along with it.
