INDIO - Darien, Connecticut's Moby will take the stage for a DJ set at 9:55 tonight inside the Sahara Tent at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival for the second and final weekend after performing last Saturday.

Moby, real name Richard Melville Hall, released his last album "Destroyed" in May 2011. He had a hit with "South Side" featuring Gwen Stefani in 2000 from his 1999 album "Play."

His Coachella performance will feature NASA video footage during the set and he'll feature new music with collaborations from Loops of Fury, Zodiac Cartel, Cold Blank and Darth & Vader, according to a news release.

"In 1999 I was asked to play the first Coachella, and it ended up being one of my all-time favorite festival experiences," Moby said in a statement. "Because of scheduling issues I haven't been able to play any of the subsequent years, but this year I'm really, truly excited to be going back for the first time since 1999. I'm also incredibly proud of Paul and the people behind Coachella, for having the vision to start this amazing festival in the desert."
