RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS star FLEA showed off his trumpeting skills at the Coachella FESTIVAL in California on Saturday (01MAY04) when he performed with the EVENS.

Flea also teamed up with bandmate Anthony Kiedis yesterday (02MAY04) to perform ELTON JOHN SONG with the newly-reformed THELONIOUS MONSTER.

Flea wasn't the only surprise guest to appear on stage with pals at Coachella - rocker Joan Jett and Mark Lanegan joined Queens Of The Stone Age star Josh Homme's side project THE DESERT SESSIONS, as did Homme's girlfriend Brody Dalle.

B-52s star Fred Schneider also teamed up with Scandinavian pop duo JUNIOR SENIOR.

Meanwhile, Beck and Perry Farrell were surprise additions to the festival - Beck's last-minute set in the GOBI TENT caused pedestrian problems on Saturday afternoon as fans crammed into a small space to watch their hero.

And JANE'S ADDICTION star Farrell shocked many when he took the dance music tent stage as DJ PERETZ.
