Katy Perry appears to have found a new guy in the music business. And where else to make their first public appearance together than at a rock festival?

The pop star, 27, was spotted kissing, hugging and swaying to music with Robert Ackroyd, a guitarist for English indie-pop band Florence + the Machine, at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, Calif., this weekend.

Perry was all smiles, in a purple outfit with a gold sunburst pattern, matching her newly dyed purple hair, as she danced the night away with Ackroyd, outfitted simply in jeans and a white T-shirt – revealing his heavily tattooed forearms.

Tupac Hologram to Tour?

Originally posted 04/17/2012 10:55AM

Don't call it a comeback! Well, because Tupac Shakur is just a hologram.

But despite being dead since 1996, Shakur, who was 25 at the time of his fatal shooting, appeared at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival alongside Snoop Dogg this weekend, and his image's performance has become an Internet sensation.

The impressive visual is not actually a hologram, but rather a 2-D image created by Digital Domain Media Group, Inc., which provided details to the Wall Street Journal on what's next for Tupac and the technology.

Never one to shy away from letting loose, Paris Hilton made her presence known on Saturday night at the A|X Armani Exchange and T-Mobile Neon Carnival near Coachella.

The socialite was front and center in the deejay area at the party – which also drew out guests such as Emma Roberts, Gerard Butler and Usher – where she shouted at the crowd and twirled around in her dress.

"At one point, she started swinging her head in circles," says an onlooker. "Her hair was flying everywhere. She was definitely having a good time."

Earlier in the day, the socialite and her deejay boyfriend Afrojack were attached at the hip in a private cabana at a Chevy Volt party.

Coming straight from a rainy M83 concert at Coachella, Katy Perry arrived at 2 a.m. with six male pals at the Hennessy V.S. Presents Details @ Midnight party.

A seemingly upbeat Perry, who showed off newly dyed purple hair, ran inside the bash to dance and mingle with the crowd. And a source tells us that her late arrival kept the festivities going until 4 a.m. – past the scheduled end time.

And a long night out didn't stop the pop star from having enough energy to hit the party circuit the next day; she made her way during the mid-afternoon to the Lacoste L!ve/HTC Pool Party at a private home in Thermal, Calif.

"He selected what he called the "sexiest" part of the mural to sign," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "It featured a woman's leg as the guitar strings."

Some people refuse to believe Tupac Shakur is actually dead – and the rapper's flawlessly orchestrated, incredibly realistic-looking hologram performance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Sunday night did nothing to persuade them.

Appearing shirtless in jeans, the legendary rapper – who was murdered in 1996 at the age of 25 – shouted on a microphone, "Yeah, you know what the [expletive] this is! What up Dre? What up Snoop? What the [expletive] is up, Coachella?"

He then paced around the stage and went into a performance of his classic hit "Hail Mary." The shockingly realistic likeness was achieved with a combination of live footage, wire framing and CGI projected onto a special foil, Forbes reports. Some special voice-over work was employed as well.
