Post Malone’s surprise performance
Posty made his way to the Revolve Festival stage on Saturday night (April 16) to surprise attendees with a hit-filled performance, including a pumped-up rendition of “Congratulations” alongside onstage guest Quavo.
“It’s been a great ride. I want everyone to know that I am so grateful, so appreciative, so happy, and that I’m so f—ing blessed to have the opportunity to sing these songs with you guys,” Post Malone told the crowd sweetly, clearly happy and emotional. Spreading love wherever you go is the most important thing. It only takes a second of your time, but it can make a difference in someone’s life. These are difficult times, especially now. So much love to Ukraine, and so much love for all those who are struggling. So much love to everyone. COVID has taken so much toll on the f—ing world .”

Jack Harlow flying “First Class” onstage
Just a day before it was announced that he notched his first solo Billboard Hot 100 chart topper with “First Class,” Jack Harlow performed the catchy TikTok viral hit at Revolve Fest.
The best part, of course, was the crowd chanting along to the interpolation of Fergie’s 2007 two-week Hot 100 No. 1, “Glamorous.”
A whole cafe dedicated to K-pop
Spotify was the exclusive streaming partner for the event. Revolve Festival’s Spotify K-Pop Cafe featured a Blend-themed smoothie bar and celebrated the streaming platform’s “K-Pop ON!” playlist. It brought life to the beauty, fashion, and music that Korean culture has made a difference in the world.
The bar also served dalonga, a whipped Korean coffee made from instant coffee, sugar and hot water. The name “dalgona” comes from a Korean street snack which tastes honeycomb toffee (If you’ve seen Netflix’s Squid Game, dalgona is the candy used in the third episode’s challenge). The way dalgona is somewhat similar to the process of making whipped coffee, so a Korean TV personality named the coffee after that, according to My Korean Kitchen.
818 Tequila cocktails to beat the desert heat
Revolve Festival attendees got to choose between two specialty cocktails featuring Kendall Jenner’s 818 tequila — which served as the ultimate refreshment as La Quinta, Calif., temperatures reached nearly 95 degrees.
The “Palm Springs Paloma” featured a reviving mix of 818’s tequila blanco, fresh grapefruit juice, lime juice, hibiscus tea and agave syrup.
“Kenny’s Favorite Marg,” meanwhile, put a sweet twist on the classic margarita with 818 tequila reposado, orange liqueur, fresh lime juice, agave syrup and Tajin lining the rim for a bit of spice.

Willow bringing some pop-punk to Revolve Fest
Dressed in the ultimate cool-girl ‘fit, Willow rocked a black, cropped halter top and matching mini skirt, complete with fishnet stockings, yellow calf-high socks and Converse sneakers.
The 21-year-old took the stage as Sunday’s (April 17) special guest, and performed all her latest hits, proving once again that she’s the music star to watch in 2022.
