The Top 10 Best Moments from Weekend 1 of Coachella 2018
From Beyoncé to Cardi B to Walmart Yodel Boy‘s debut, the first weekend of Coachella was definitely one to remember. To be quite honest, even though it was a weekend filled with some of the world’s biggest musical acts, Beyoncé dominated the whole festival with her incredible set on Saturday evening.
Kicking off our list of best moments from the first weekend of Coachella is the incredible Destiny’s Child reunion that happened during Bey’s set. Every hardcore DC and Beyonce stan knows that these reunions are VERY rare — the group’s last reunion was in 2013 at the “Hold Up” singer’s Super Bowl Halftime Show! — so it only makes sense that the trio’s surprise performance is on our list.
Following the girl group’s reunion is, well, Queen Bey’s ENTIRE set. Yonce managed to snatch every person’s weave with her incredible performances and, honestly, if we didn’t group together the singer’s iconic Coachella set as one of the best moments, then this list would have to be called The Top 10 Best Moments from Beyonce’s Coachella Performance.
Rihanna also made it onto our list for living her best life during the 36-year-old’s set:

And, of course, how could we forget Cardi B? Not only did she put on a show while being PREGNANT, she still managed to get turnt on stage and twerk for the audience:

Aside from her twerking, Cardi also brought Chance the Rapper out on stage for a duet and it was pretty amazing.
After becoming a viral sensation, Mason Ramsey (a.k.a. Walmart Yodel Boy) made his debut at Coachella this past weekend:

According to Whethan, Mason was supposed to be starring in his school talent show that night, but decided to perform Coachella instead. Casual. Performing at Coachella was the clearly better choice because if the young star didn’t go, he definitely wouldn’t have been able to meet Justin Bieber!!!
This past weekend consisted of a LOT of surprise appearances from musical guest stars. During Eminem‘s set he brought out Dr. Dre and together the two performed a number of iconic songs, including “Still D.R.E.,” “Nothin’ but a G Thang” and a few others.
Meanwhile, SZA brought out Kendrick Lamar during her set and they performed “Doves in the Wind,” as well as their collab from the Black Panther soundtrack, “All the Stars.”
Although all of the performances we listed so far hyped up the Coachella crowd, The Weeknd‘s set evoked a more mellow and emotional feeling from the crowd, especially when he sang “Call Out My Name” — his track allegedly about Selena Gomez — and seemly cried on stage.
And that’s the end of Weekend 1! We can’t wait to see what Weekend 2 has in store for us all. Until then, peace out!
