Day Two of the 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival picked up where Day One left off, with big performances from big names. The lineup on Saturday (April 14) featured the likes of WizKid, Flatbush Zombies, Tyler, The Creator, BROCKHAMPTON and Post Malone. But it was Beyoncé who closed out the night with a mega set, bringing out husband Jay-Z and reuniting Destiny’s Child.
In typical Bey fashion, everything was extra, from the set to the multiple extravagant wardrobe changes, to the mass of backup dancers and singers. There was definitely an African American theme throughout. Bey started things off with “Lift Every Voice and Sing” before slipping into “Formation.” There was also a nod to HBCU’s with a full-on drumline.
The spectacle didn’t stop there. Hov hopped on stage for a hot minute to deliver the duet “Déjà Vu.” Destiny’s Child made a triumphant return and Solange also graced the stage. Of course, Bey belted out bangers like “Drunk in Love” and “Feeling Myself” and plenty more. She also danced to O.T. Genasis’ “Everybody Mad.”
Opening day of Coachella featured some lit performances as well. Vince Staples put on a rousing show and surprised the crowd during his set by bringing out Kendrick Lamar to perform their duet “Yeah Right.” Trippie Redd performed “Dark Knight Gummo” during SZA’s set. Belly and Rich The Kid hit the stage. The Weeknd shut it down, closing things out with a huge 20-plus song set that included tracks off his new project My Dear Melancholy,.
Closing out the weekend Sunday (April 15) are acts like French Montana, Migos, Cardi B, Amine, DeJ Loaf, Russ and Eminem.
