Beyoncé's Coachella Performance Earns Highest YouTube Livestream Numbers
#Beychella is the gift that keeps on giving.
Beyoncé was the first black woman in history to headline Coachella, and now she's racked up additional milestones for her stunning nearly two-hour set during weekend one of the popular California festival.
Beyond being the most tweeted about Coachella artist, Beyoncé's performance became the most-viewed Coachella performance and most viewed live music festival on YouTube ever, with 458,000 simultaneous global viewers tuning in to see her Coachella set.
Fans just couldn't stand to miss Queen Bey herself, along with a Destiny's Child 20th-anniversary reunion, performances with husband Jay-Z and sister Solange, and a marching band, 100 backup dancers and an astounding 26 songs in a row.
Unfortunately, the livestream was only available the day of Beyoncé's performance, and Coachella only streams the first weekend live. So if you missed the remote performance, you may be out of luck, though Variety speculates it could be available at a later date — for example, on Tidal.
Regardless, for those who are attending the second weekend of the festival, #Beychella take two is definitely on.
