A slew of devastated fans have taken to social media to air their disappointment around Coachella not livestreaming Eminem's headline set.
Eminem discovered 50 Cent back in 2002 and mentored the rapper along with Dr. Dre as he became one of the biggest names in the music industry. The New York rapper celebrated their set on Instagram, writing, "Coachella 2018 what a moment good times".
Coachella day 3 is over and with it also the weekend 1 of the Californian festival.
Eminem is notorious for not allowing festivals to livestream his performance, with the same scenario unfolding at Reading past year. With neither Beyoncé nor Rihanna available, Eminem subbed in Skylar Grey for their verses on "Walk on Water" and "Love the Way You Lie".
Dre appeared for "Still D.R.E." and stuck around to join Em for Dre and Snoop Dogg's "Nothin' but a G Thang", 2Pac's "California Love", and "Forgot About Dre". Watch the Coachella live stream and check out the full Coachella 2018 schedule.
