It’s a wrap for the first weekend of Coachella 2018, or what some would prefer to call Beychella. Headlining America’s biggest, most star-studded annual music and arts festival, Beyoncé became the first woman of colour to headline the fête. And boy did she go above and beyond in delivering an electrifying, radical performance.
Instead of skimping on stage set or choreography as other musicians would typically do at music festivals, Queen Bey went against the grain. The stage was moving and alive. Over 200 dancers, singers, and musicians joined her onstage — not to mention a Solange Knowles cameo. There was even a surprise Destiny’s Child comeback. Best of all? The multiple costume change which had Beyoncé (and all her dancers) stepping out in at least four head-to-toe custom Balmain outfits by Olivier Rousteing within two hours.
