Coachella 2019: What You Missed?
1. Their star-studded lineup booked way before the booking team knew
The Coachella 2019 lineup was booked way before the festival. Most were done in the summer and fall of 2018. The booking team didn’t know they were planning the star-studded lineup that it was.
2. A lot of sound problems
Coachella 2019 is a music festival of massive scale. To expect it to run completely smooth is wishful thinking. Sure enough, the two-weekend festival saw repeated sound problems during performances.
3. Kanye’s Easter Sunday service
For months leading up to the festival, report after report came out. Most were about Kanye West headlining for Coachella 2019. He was initially rumored to be a headliner. But, stories reported that fell through after organizers refused to build Kanye a dome on festival grounds.
4. The best Couch-ella experience yet
Thank you technology and Youtube! You no longer have to be sad about missing Coachella, or ‘No-chella’ as many call it. FOMO won’t be an issue either. For the ninth year in a row, Youtube live-streamed the festival. This year better than all the previous.
5. Surprise performances all through Coachella 2019
Coachella 2019 was no short of celebrity surprise appearances and performances. Justin Bieber mad a surprise guest performance in Ariana Grande’s headlining show for Coachella 2019’s second weekend. His appearance raised the bar from her first-weekend show. He sang his hit “Sorry” in his first stage appearance in two years.
6. Blackpink’s historical Coachella 2019 debut
History was made during Coachella 2019. Blackpink became the first ever K-Pop girl group to perform at Coachella. And they killed it!
7. A fire broke out on festival grounds
Unfortunately, sound problems weren’t the only mishap of Coachella 2019. A fire broke out on festival grounds early Saturday morning. This was right after the wrap for the first day of Coachella 2019.
8. The BIG headliners
It’s a hard act to follow after last year’s headliner, Beyonce. Who could ever upstage queen Bae Beyonce right? The booking team knew that so they lined up a few huge acts for Coachella 2019.
Coachella 2019 was huge! Hopefully, it can surpass this event next year. Even though that would definitely be a hard thing to do.
