Last year at Coachella, Cody Simpson was hot and heavy with ex-girlfriend Gigi Hadid – but this year, the star turned it into a guys’ weekend.

The star was spotted hanging out in the lobby at the Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs jamming on a Fender guitar before heading out into the desert.

“He was excited about coming back to Coachella again with his guy friends,” says a source.

Aside from hitting up the music festival, the singer also made the party rounds. At the Bootsy Bellows pop-up bash sponsored by McDonald’s All Day Breakfast and Chevrolet on Saturday, he hopped into the giant ball pit with his pals.

And the night before, he partied late into the night at the Nylon Midnight Garden bash, where Leonardo DiCaprio, Hailey Baldwin and Kristen Stewart were also spotted hanging out in the VIP cabanas provided by Dream Hollywood hotel, where label.m provided hair braiding.
