Beyoncé Becomes First Black Female to Headline Coachella

Beyonce performs with Jay-Z Saturday during the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California, April 14, 2018. The singer, who was pregnant for the second time with twines, Rumi and Sir Carter, had backed out from the festival, made sure that the year-long wait was worth it for her fans.

Global pop singer Beyoncé, who was performing at Coachella 2018 grabbed headlines as she suffered a wardrobe malfunction during her live performance.

For Queen Bey, the organisers brought out a catwalk, where she strutted in a variety of different outfits with some spectacular troupes of dancers and incredible set pieces, singing songs old and new including an a cappella rendition of "Sorry", and a mash-up of "Drunk in Love" and Nina Simone's "Lilac Wine".

To start off her two-hour show, Queen Bey evoked the spirit of another member of black royalty, Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, appearing in a custom Balmain gold-crusted cape and headdress. She was accompanied by a marching band, drumline and choir.


A year after postponing her headlining set in 2017 due to pregnancy, Beyoncé treated her return to the stage like a family reunion, homecoming pep rally and a Beyhive-unifying rebel yell before heading into battle.

One of the greatest music festivals of the year, Coachella, was held recently, and it was bigger than ever, thanks to Beyonce's larger-than-life performances.

Beyoncé took to the stage during Day 2 of Coachella and she basically slayed our entire existence.
