The first day of the Coachella Festival in California was a star-studded affair on Friday and Saturday – and it had little to do with the acts onstage.
The crowds were littered with Hollywood celebrities and hot young couples smooching in the sun.

Vanessa Hudgens made her Coachella debut with her rumored boyfriend Josh Hutcherson, while Hilton sisters Paris and Nicky were spotted partying with Nicky’s boyfriend David Katzenberg.

Lindsay Lohan and Katy Perry were also among the music fans living it up in the desert, as were actress Kate Bosworth and her beau Alexander Skarsgard, reality TV star Whitney Port and partner Ben Nemtin and Twilight actress Ashley Greene, who showed her love for new boyfriend Jared Followill prior to his band Kings of Leon’s Friday night set.

It was the couple’s first official public outing since she split from Jonas Brothers hunk Joe Jonas last month.

And the stars kept coming – Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosia, a Coachella regular, was there with fiance Jamie Mazur and German actress Diane Kruger showed up with her partner Joshua Jackson, while Busy Phillips, Isabel Lucas, Lukas Haas, Jack Osbourne, Dita von Teese and Tara Reid were also spotted. Meanwhile, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert Downey Jr. joined the fun, as did Danny DeVito, who also attended the 2010 festival, and David Hasselhoff showed up with his new girlfriend, Brit Hayley Roberts.

Talking of Brits, Sir Paul McCartney was also briefly spotted at Coachella.

The non-performing stars caught gigs by Cee Lo Green, Lauryn Hill and Kings of Leon, among others on the first two nights of three.
