Beyonce seemingly ruined Coachella for many concert goers in 2017 when she decided to get pregnant and was then forced to cancel.
Ok, ok — let us be fair, we only want the best for the singer. But hundreds of us were certainly disappointed when the now mother of three canceled due to doctors orders. Blissful emotions, however, sky rocketed after the pop star’s camp confirmed that she will 110% headline the mega music festival in 2018.
So over the summer, thousands of folks flocked to purchase pre-sale tickets knowing what to expect — a damn good concert. And now, come Friday January 5th, folks will be fighting tooth and nail to land second dale tix. Why? The lineup was just announced and whelp, Beyonce is NOT the only lit performer hitting Indio, California.
Seriously, this year’s festival is nothing short of brilliant.
Kicking off Friday’s festivities will be the main headliner, The Weeknd, SZA, Vince Staples, Jamiroquai and Daniel Ceasar to name a few. Now, here’s where it starts getting even better.
On Saturday, Beyonce will headline and artists such as HAIM, Tyler the Creator, alt-J and Post Malone will hit stages around the Empire Polo Club.
Ok, ok, now breathe … here’s the kicker. On the last night of the festival, expect a knock out performance by Eminem, Migos, Cardi B. and Miguel. Mic drop!
Many of the performances are also expected to be politically charged. Last month, Eminem dropped a new track called “Untouchable,” where he not only shouts out Colin Kaepernick, but calls out police for racial profiling and their hatred towards Black men.
And of course, Beyonce will most likely perform her hit charged track, “Formation.”
