Kanye West delights fans with unannounced Coachella performances.

Kanye West drove Coachella fans wild as he made two surprise appearances during the opening night of the Californian music festival.

The rapper joined A$AP Rocky on stage on Friday (15Apr16), performing Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1 from Kanye's The Life of Pablo album to a delighted crowd. However, Billboard.com reports that Kanye was hit by technical problems, and his mic stopped working a mere 10 words into the track.

Kanye kept rapping, unaware of the issue, while the crowd rushed close to the stage to get a glimpse of the rap superstar. The pair wanted to play one more track, but the sound was cut as A$AP had already overturn his allotted time slot, NME.com reports.

Kanye wasn't his only surprise guest during his set, as he brought out Black Hippy member ScHoolboy Q to perform their track Electric Body, which fortunately wasn't hit with any mic malfunctions.

Later on Friday night, Gold Digger hitmaker Kanye took to the stage again to make his second surprise appearance at the music festival, this time during the hugely popular set from Skrillex and Diplo supergroup, Jack U.

Diplo announced Kanye's arrival during the track Power, whipping fans into a frenzy. However, the rapper simply stood soaking in the audience's applause, then exited the stage, according to Billboard.com.

The music festival continues on Saturday at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, with rockers Guns N' Roses headlining.
