Fans of the White Stripes were given a “tiny little gift” by Coachella on Tuesday. The music festival shared rare footage of the band’s performance from the 2003 show. The video comes from Coachella’s new ‘20 Years In The Desert’ documentary.

In the short clip shared by the music festival, the band is shown performing their song, ‘Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground.’ Previously, all footage of the performance was fan-shot footage with grainy visuals and audio. “A tiny little gift for you. The White Stripes' 2003 performance of "Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground" available now #CoachellaDoc,” Coachella captioned their tweet.

Fans of The White Stripes were stunned by the rare footage, as that performance is considered a seminal part of the band’s career. Thee ’20 Years In The Desert’ documentary was released online yesterday. Now fans can catch up on plenty of iconic performances from the music festival.
