Gaga last performed here in 2007, but back then she was an emerging artist who didn't attract much fanfare when she performed at the music festival. But how things have changed in three years. The pop superstar performed to thousands of enthusiastic fans, according to The Associated Press. "My name is Lady Gaga. I thank you for coming to my show," she told the crowd.
