The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ headlining set on Sunday night (April 14th) to close out the first weekend of the Coachella Festival in Indio, California was ravaged by a fierce sandstorm, according to Rolling Stone. The storm began during a previous set by the Wu-Tang Clan, but had become “blinding” by the time the Chili Peppers took the stage, with singer Anthony Kiedis saying, “I feel like I’m in Lawrence Of Arabia.”

Rolling Stone reported that “brutal, freezing winds” whipped up during the storm, adding, “By the end of the day, it was hard to enjoy anything with a mouthful of sand, burning eyes and numb extremities.”

The Chili Peppers, the Clan and other acts that got blasted by wind and sand on Sunday will get the chance to do it all over again this coming weekend, when Coachella literally repeats itself for another 90,000 attendees.

After Coachella, the Chili Peppers are next scheduled to co-headline the second annual Orion Music + More festival with event organizers Metallica in Detroit on June 8th and 9th,
