JANE'S ADDICTION star Perry Farrell wowed fans at the weekend's (26-27APR03) Coachella FESTIVAL in the California desert with a surprise DJ set.

Billed as DJ PERETZ, Farrell took centre stage in the poetry tent to rousing applause from thousands of fans who had heard whispers that it was the rocker who was behind the mysterious DJ.

The fourth annual festival attracted talent including RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, White Stripes, The Hives and Beastie Boys, whose Saturday night (26APR03) set was wrecked by high winds which blew garbage and sand onto the stage.

The festival was also a stop-off point for a host of Hollywood stars - Cameron Diaz, Juliette Lewis and Michelle Rodriguez were spotted among the crowds.
