At Puerto Rican trap star Bad Bunny’s fiery main stage Coachella set on Sunday (April 14), some fans donned fuzzy bunny ears, some raised flags from across Latin America and others threw their pinkies to the air in Bad Bunny’s trademark gesture. But almost everyone was going positively nuts.

The 25-year-old born Benito Ocasio has catapulted to mainstream fame over the past year, thanks to hit collaborations like his "Te Bote" remix with Ozuna and Nicky Jam and "MIA" with Drake, along with his own masterful album X100PRE, released last December. His set was part of a seemingly unprecedented number of Latin acts on this year's Coachella roster, including J Balvin and Spanish singer Rosalía -- and among dozens of performers, the global group had some of the most elaborate and dazzling performances of the weekend.
