Beyoncé unveils Coachella pop-up shop

If you can’t stop thinking about Beyoncé’s epic — and history-making — performance at Coachella, you can now own a piece of the show, thanks to a new pop-up shop.

According to Harper’s Bazaar, “Beychella” merchandise is now up for sale in an online pop-up shop, featuring a pieces inspired by her performance that show off “the same lettering and panther logos that adorned her Coachella wardrobe.”

One tee — the Nefertiti T-shirt — shows just one of Beyoncé’s stunning Balmain looks from the show, says Harper’s Bazaar, while other sweatshirts and T-shirts display what looks like it was “inspired by US university fraternity logos, which typically employ Greek lettering.”

Pieces start around $35, and will be available until mid-May, according to Harper’s Bazaar.

 

 

Beyoncé to headline Coachella in April

With a total of nine Grammy nominations, Beyoncé has a chance of winning big at the music industry’s biggest night. But it looks like the pop superstar has already won the stage of one of the biggest music festivals in the world.

According to the Huffington Post, Beyoncé is set to headline Coachella, along with Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar. While snagging a headliner spot is enough to celebrate, the Huffington Post  points out that it will be a history-making moment: “She’s also the first solo female artist to headline Coachella in the last decade and the first black woman ever to headline the California-based festival.”

Only two other women have headlined Coachella since its start in 1999, says HuffPost: Bjork in 2007 and female-fronted English rock band Portishead in 2008.

Beyoncé’s headlining performance comes after a year when Coachella performances were comprised of only a small number of female acts. HuffPost reports, “last year, Coachella’s lineup included 168 male artists and just 60 female artists ― a figure that includes both all-female and mixed-gender acts.”

While this year’s lineup still doesn’t achieve gender parity — HuffPost says the 2017 performances include “108 all-male acts and 40 all-female and mixed-gender acts” — Beyoncé’s headliner stint may help usher in a new era for Coachella and spur other music festivals to follow suit.
