Coachella successfully evolved in its music festival this year; Beyonce made history during Coachella in 2018, as she was the first black women to headlined Coachella. She also had a stage full of people dancing and singing with her, and had more than 100 dancers and marching band members.
Beyonce delivered a cultural performance which really set an unforgettable performance. Beyoncé’s theme for the set was “homecoming,” because she wanted to evaluate black history, and she also wanted to honor black college students.
And if that wasn’t enough, she brought out Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams for a Destiny’s Child reunion. They sang their hit songs “Say my name,” and “Soldier.” The crowd went wild. Nobody knew she was going to bring them on during her Coachella performance. It was a shock. She also brought out her husband Jay-Z and her sister Solange, as surprise guests, during the first weekend’s performance. For weekend two, she brought out J Balvin and they sang “Mi Gente.”
Each time Beyoncè went on stage to perform a new song she came out with a different outfit. Beyoncé first entered her performance wearing a Balmain look because she wanted to channel the Egyptian queen Nefertiti. Her dancers wore catsuits. Her yellow Balmain hoodie was a casual change for Beyoncé, she styled it with denim cutoffs and Christian Louboutin boots that complemented the style. The letters on her hoodie meant a lot of things like: the queen is Bak, and B, K are her initials, but we really don’t know what it actually means.
The next outfit was a glittery mesh Balmain top that said “Beyonce 2018,” but the crest on it also had an image of an Egyptian Royal, a fist to represent “black power”, a black panther, and a bee.
She then wore the black latex bodysuit and jacket to complete her Coachella performance.
