Beyonce Mania Hits Coachella – and She Hasn’t Even Performed Yet

Fans impatiently await Queen Bey’s arrival at the music fest with some rather overzealous memes

The anticipation for Beyonce’s performance at Coachella late Saturday night has reached a fever pitch, judging by the crazy, eclectic assortment of memes on social media.

Beyonce, Eminem and The Weeknd are headlining the Southern California desert music festival this weekend and next, the first time in its nearly two decades that a rock band won’t be among the main acts. JuJu takes the stage Saturday at 11:05 p.m.

#Beychella trended thanks to fans who expressed their excitement with dancing memes, fainting memes, weeping and wailing memes, and Aretha Franklin-whipping-off-her-wig memes… and that was just the start.

Here are just a few of the hundreds.

Beyonce dropped out of her headlining slot last year due to her pregnancy, but made good on her promise to return in 2018.

Not even two months after Coachella 2017 wrapped, tickets for this year’s music festival went on sale. But if you weren’t among the hungry festival enthusiasts who caught wind of the news, you were out of luck. No sooner had the pre-sale begun than it was sold out. And Twitter freaked out, in large part because of the announcement that Beyonce would be performing.
