WHO BERNIE SANDERS WOULD SEE AT COACHELLA THIS YEAR

  1. Run the Jewels
    Killer Mike and Bernie had lunch in February to discuss Bernie's Coachella debut.
  2. Bernie wanted to perform
    Killer Mike didn't have the heart to tell him he was only going to introduce them.
  3. Bernie practiced for two months
    He was ready to rap "Lie, Cheat, Steal" with Hilary's head on a stick. He even photoshopped mock up promotional posters.
  4. Day 1 of Coachella
    Bernie got stage fright but he didn't want to let his buddy down. He recorded an introduction for Run the Jewels to play before their performance.
  5. The crowd went wild
    As much as the crowd would have LOVED to see Bernie perform, the festival goers were ecstatic about Bernie's virtual appearance.
  6. He was there in spirit
    Everywhere.
  7. All that practice will still be put to good use
    After Killer Mike and El-P consoled Bernie, they decided to really go for it with a special performance at Bernichella.
  8. Stay tuned for Berniechella
    And the announcement we've been waiting for.
