Nate Dogg
isn't letting a little thing like death keep him away from Coachella this weekend -- sources tell TMZ, the rapper will be making a very special guest appearance on stage ... in the form of a HOLOGRAM.

Sources tell us, Dr. Dre didn't want to leave Nate out of his Sunday performance -- so he's incorporating his old friend using hologram technology ... the same technology that broadcast Mariah Carey's image across Europe last year ... at 5 simultaneous concerts.

We're told an image of Nate will be projected onto the Coachella stage -- alongside Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kurupt, Warren G, and Daz Dillinger -- to make it appear as though he's actually performing on stage.

According to sources, Nate will perform several songs.

The singer passed away last March -- just weeks before last year's Coachella festival.

No one that goes to Coachella wants to see rap. They want to see music to trip on acid to. These rap guys always have to be a part of these festivals, not realizing that someone that goes to a concert to see someone like Coldplay, has not interest in seeing gangster rap.

@Phreaky. don't be a hater. that's why the coachella music festival exists, to appeal to everyone's musical tastes. if you don't want to see any rappers, take yo ass to the other part of the festival and see some of the bands you like.
