AceShowbiz - Beyonce Knowles made history by being the first black woman to headline Coachella festival, bue she also notched another milestone in the process. Her powerhouse Coachella performance is the most live streamed YouTube video in the history of the music event.
The singer took the stage for the annual California festival on Saturday, April 14, and 458,000 people, who couldn't be there, tuned in to the video sharing site to watch. The number is up 75 percent from last year (2017), when Lady Gaga headlined the show, replacing Beyonce, who was forced to pull out of the event after becoming pregnant with twins.
The weekend-long Coachella festival drew a total of 43.1 million viewers in total and also featured live streams from performances by HAIM, The Weeknd, Post Malone, and Cardi B. It stands as the most watched music festival on the media platform.
The second weekend of the festival, which features the same acts at the same times, begins on Friday, April 20.
