Netflix has announced that Beyoncé’s now-iconic Coachella performance is coming to the streaming service on April 17.
The Grammy-award-winning singer has made history at Coachella last year, as she became the first woman of color to headline the annual festival.
Beyoncé opened her performance at by singing “Crazy in Love” accompanied by a New Orleans-style brass marching band, wearing a yellow hoodie with the Greek Letters Beta Delta Kappa. The yellow hoodie was a reference to the Divine Nine, the five African American fraternities and four sororities.
Netflix first teased the audience with a simple, yellow promotional image for a project titled Homecoming, set for an April 17 release date. But fans were quick to guess what exactly that meant to be.
Later, Netflix shared the trailer of the documentary Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé, an intimate look at the making of the singer’s groundbreaking 2018 Coachella performance.
