The promoters of Coachella canceled Sunday a Los Angeles festival to be headlined by Janet Jackson, an unusually visible sign of trouble in the long vibrant live music industry. Concert promoters Goldenvoice said they were calling off FYF Fest, two days of music on July 21 and 22 that would be led by Jackson and rockers Florence and the Machine. "Our team of many women and men have worked tirelessly on this event for many years but felt unable to present an experience on par with the expectations of our loyal fans and the Los Angeles music community this year," Goldenvoice said in a statement.
Wherever Beyonce goes, gossip precedes her, and rumors abounded that she would dramatically change up her world-beating Coachella performance last Saturday for the festival’s second weekend — one of her dancers even told Variety that the performers would “switch up a couple things.” While there were some tweaks — mostly different outfits, although J Balvin […]
Corny though they definitely, always are, surprise appearances always do well. Take Ariana Grande, who on Friday night appeared during Kygo's second set at Coachella. Grande performed her latest single, "No Tears Left to Cry" as well as a cover of Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing."

Leonardo DiCaprio is a very accomplished actor — do you have an Oscar? — but the guy sure needs help in the disguise department. They're all so bad.
Reports surfaced that singer the Weeknd was spotted making out with Bella Hadid at Coachella over the weekend, but his ex herself said, "It wasn't me."
Queen Bey put on a spectacular performance at the star-studded event, which was overrun with celebs and included drama (hey, Bieber!), hookups (Bella Hadid and the Weeknd, take two), and, of course, lots of Kardashians because we just can't shake any of them.
Beyoncé turned Coachella into “Beychella” with her historic performance, and truly, the word “epic” is not adequate to describe the spectacle.
The Weeknd got teary while performing “Call Out My Name” and “Privilege” — both believed to be about Selena Gomez. Day 1 of Coachella kicked off 2018’s festival season in typically dramatic fashion, bringing everything from onstage breakdowns to surprise superstar cameos to the Southern California desert. “Call Out My Name,” the lead track off the Weeknd’s new EP My Dear Melancholy, is widely believed to be about his ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez.
More than any competitor, Coachella has emerged as the defining music event of festival season. Over the years, the art installations have grown more grandiose, the festival package options have been diversified to include experiences far beyond a spot in a VIP lounge, the food offerings more gourmet, the brand activations more prolific, and the parties surrounding Coachella destinations themselves. One could skip the bands entirely and fill their day on the Coachella grounds with endless games of dodgeball, ferris wheel rides, Record Store Day shopping in the on-site retail hub, the silent dance party, yoga, vintage shopping, and getting their hair touched up.
Will any moment of Coachella 2018 be as memorable as our top picks from the past 19 years? We’ll soon find out.
We all know Queen B works hard to put memorable performances together, but this latest news of 11-hour rehearsals for Coachella takes that to a whole 'nother level.
