As far as we’re concerned, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival just needs to change its name to #Beychella. There, we said it! Beyoncé took to the Coachella stage Saturday, April 14th, where she became the first black woman to headline the event. The first. In 2018.

As expected, Twitter had major reactions to Bey’s history-making appearance. We loved the custom Balmain outfits, the heavy choreography, and (of course) the Destiny’s Child reunion. But there was something else so special about her performance: Beyoncé paid homage to various symbols of black culture, including HBCUs (historically black colleges and universities), black leaders, and embracing women of all sizes.

Beyoncé makes history with a live performance at Coachella

  Beyoncé makes history with a live performance at Coachella Beyoncé performed for throngs of screaming fans Saturday night at Coachella after a year's wait. "Y'all ready Coachella?," she asked the crowd as she opened her set, becoming the first woman of color to headline the music festival in Indio, California.

Beyonce is not saying whether she'll perform at Coachella , and we've now learned she did NOT tell festival organizers she was pregnant when they announced she was headlining . Bey is 35 and her first pregnancy with a single child was difficult, requiring bed rest.

The festival, which the Times reported some had taken to calling “brochella,” has officially broken its streak of male stage domination, with Beyoncé ’ s name on the performance lineup, headlining day two. Our essential brief on culture , the news, and more.

During the middle of her set, she said to the crowd: “Coachella, thank you for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline. Ain’t that ‘bout a b----?” So, of course she had to go off and show out and make Coachella regret not making her a headliner sooner.

If you’ve ever been to an HBCU homecoming, then you know it’s a moment. And if you’ve never been, then you’re missing out. The band, the dancers, the costumes … It’s something you’d see during a Super Bowl halftime show. Beyoncé brought this experience — and so much more — to the Coachella stage for the whole world to see and revel in.

Brush fire burning miles from Coachella music festival

  Brush fire burning miles from Coachella music festival Coachella is heating up, and it's not just because of Beyoncé's historic Saturday night performance. A small wildfire is burning about 6 miles away from the music festival, according to the Riverside County Fire Department. As of 10:45 a.m. local time, the fire had consumed about 15 acres and was 10% contained. Just over 100 firefighters are battling the vegetation fire, according to an incident report page on the fire department's website. Authorities said the fire poses no threat to the Coachella music festival, and that they will continue to monitor the fire and work to contain it.

The dancers on the field also formed an "X" on the field, which seemed symbolic of civil rights militant Malcolm X. Beyonce also had a strap on her chest in the form of an "X" -- but that looks like a homage to Michael Jackson' s '93 Super Bowl show.

Queen Beyonce revealed that she was pregnant with the future, TWICE, in a stunning photoshoot that was seemingly an homage to trailer park teen Earth had so many questions after the pregnancy pictures that shattered the Internet, chief among them being , “ Is she still going to headline Coachella ?”

Bow down to the Queen.

In addition to the energy of the HBCU homecoming, Beyoncé beautifully sang “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” also known as the black national anthem.

Beyoncé’s choice of colors were also important. We associate black and yellow with the BeyHive, of course, but there was likely some cultural significance to her Coachella aesthetic.

Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar will headline this year’ s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, taking place in Indio, Calif. over the course of two weekends in April. This won’t be the first time Coachella audiences have seen Kendrick and Bey at the annual festival.

Some saw it as an homage to Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity (their colors are black and old gold) or to the goddess Oshun, whom Beyoncé has repeatedly referenced in the past.

And in between the costume changes and choreography that left us breathless just watching it, Beyoncé threw in powerful Malcolm X quotes about the protection black women need and deserve, but rarely get.

Our Queen has always embraced her curves, and she shared the stage with curvy dancers who slayed right alongside her!

Per usual, Beyoncé left us recovering from another killer performance. We’re not worthy!
