Steely Dan and fanny packs prove that what was once uncool is cool at Coachella.

Coachella Weekend Warriors were up to their usual tricks of spending a whole weekend out in the sun, showing off a little skin to stay cool and donning big giant floppy hats to shield their pasty noses. We also caught more than a few Aussies—no doubt here for AC/DC. Also making a cameo appearance in many of the photos is the giant caterpillar roving the festival grounds. Look out millennials, THERE'S A GIANT CATERPILLAR BEHIND YOU.
