Beyoncé becomes first black woman in history to headline Coachella

"Y'all ready Coachella?", she asked the crowd as she opened her set, becoming the first woman of color to headline the music festival in Indio, California.

She paid tribute to historically black colleges and universities and performed Lift Every Voice and Sing, known as the unofficial national black anthem.

Strutting to the tune of a marching band, she later reappeared on the stage wearing a yellow crop top and hot trousers paired with tasselled boots again from Balmain.

She ended her performance by praising her band and dancers, as well as thanking festival-goers.
