Beyonce Makes History At Coachella

The singer - whose set marked the first time a black woman has headlined the California festival - was a trending topic nearly immediately, sparking hundreds of thousands of tweets declaring the festival #Beychella.

This second day of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has seen as protagonists the biggest pop artists from the music scene.

The stage was filled with a marching band and huge numbers of dancers with Beyoncé opening with "Crazy In Love". Also after she sang with Destiny's child, Solange came out and danced to "Get Me Bodied". The last time the band performed together was at the 2013 Super Bowl halftime show. The group propelled Beyonce to stardom but was also beset by internal friction.

At the world's glitziest festival, Coachella, the world was treated to one of the powerhouse's of music showing that festivals are now a worldwide event.

"Beyonce and Destiny's Child are reuniting", a source was quoted as saying. She sported an all-American outfit of tight jean shorts and a collegiate sweatshirt - the Greek letters, of course, starting with "B".

Queen Bey stunned crowds with a almost two-hour-long performance with favourites such as "Crazy in Love", "Sorry", "Formation" & "Partition".

"Thank you for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline Coachella", she exclaimed while bringing Sasha Fierce back to life.

In 2017, Beyonce had cancelled her appearance at Coachella citing pregnancy complications. In addition, one of her knee-high boots slipped down to her ankle.
