Report: Beyonce’s Coachella Performance Sets Youtube Live Stream Record

Published: Wednesday 18th Apr 2018 by Rashad

Beyonce‘s been deemed “the Queen” of many things over her illustrious two-decade career and now it seems she can add Youtube to her list of conquests.

Her show-stopping performance at last weekend’s Coachella – still very much the talk of many-a-headline for its celebration of African American culture and historically Black colleges and universities – also broke live stream records along the way.

Boasting a 75% increase in viewership over last year’s top act, Lady Gaga, look inside to see just how many people tuned in to see Bey absolutely kill the Coachella stage:


Beyonce‘s got YouTube crazy in love thanks to her Coachella performance which set a live stream record.

Bey’s Saturday performance drew 458k simultaneous viewers on YouTube … the most ever for a single Coachella performance since they started streaming the festival 8 years ago. In all, we’re told the opening weekend — which also included The Weeknd, Eminem and Migos, — generated 43.1 million live stream views in 232 countries. That makes it the most-viewed live music festival ever on YouTube.”

Congratz to Bey and team for the amazing outing!

    Thief Beyonce needs about 1000 to 2000 people to be on stage with her just so she can have a good show Michael Jackson can perform his penny loafers alone …. when Michael did the moonwalk on stage he did not have 2,000 people on stage Beyonce has to have a full Army

    • ??? April 18, 2018

      lmao none of the real Legends need 1000 roaches on stage to distract everybody, only roach and her basic booty poppin ass needs that, along with her pimp camel lmfaoooo

      Thank you! So sick of this long mane wearing Lioness! People fail to realize she wins people over with the over the top sets and 1,000 to 2,000 people like you said on stage with her. Yes Michael use to rip the stage with his Penny Loafers honey! Live vocals and all! No one can match the king! Theifyonce need to have a seat with her new born calves. LOL!

        Um, my mama wouldn’t have a queen that’s a doormat who keep popping out babies for a man that keep cheating on her. Grow up.

  8. B2B April 18, 2018

    Not to mention this was on a Saturday night at 2 o’clock in the morning NYC time. East coast leaving the party. West coast was headed to the party. Remarkable. 75% increase. Never lacking.

    • ??? April 18, 2018

      lmao 458k, yeah ok gurl lmfaooooooooo #flopviewers

  9. blue April 18, 2018

    notice the 400K views
    notice again how this year’s is the most viewed overall meaning a natural growth with/without beyonce

    • SMH April 18, 2018

      Exactly. This was a 3 day festival with several headliners & performers. One artist is not responsible for the amount of viewers this event receives, no matter what her delusional fan base wants to believe.

      • Electrikblue April 18, 2018

        @SMH Girl shut up you be the first one on any Beyonce list hating wth yo negative a $ $ ! You’re mad that nobody else seethes as much as you do about Beyonce stay mad nd broke and posting comments on mine whilst she lives her dreams. Lmao

  10. olusheyi banjo April 18, 2018

    That’s awesome, but she should not even mentioned in the same sentence with the great Michael Jackson. When Wendell Williams said she was better than Michael, i knew that HE,I mean she, was back on drugs. I love Beyonce and I watched her Coachella performance, but NO!! It was nowhere near Michael or even Janet level

    • ??? April 18, 2018

      lmao gurl, shes not even on latoya or jermaine’s level. these roaches and their delusions are getting more and more hilarious every day lmfaooo.

      • Olusheyi April 18, 2018

        For real

  11. Fatu Sankoh April 18, 2018

    Congrat to Queen Bey she make history I never seen any performance like this ever may god continue to bless protect her and her family for life long happy life Career more success in all she do

    • gina April 18, 2018

      What history did she make exactly?

  12. B2B April 18, 2018

    To the idiots that are saying this was not because of her…. understand she had 400k viewers “simultaneously.” Watching her performance.

  13. Drinkmybussyjuice April 18, 2018

    Ppl just hate to hate to hate. they see her success and it makes them jealous. You may not like her, but bias aside give credit where its due. She is talanted no matter how you feel about her. Not many ppl could do what she does for two hrs. Shes my queen. Also. Ppl saying these numbers are a flop. This was at 12am mtn time. And it dosnt need justification “highest of all time” says it all.

  14. iamdiego April 18, 2018

    Congrats Bey! Some of you can’t read. I bet most of you will be contributing to the flop numbers next Sunday at 2am. As far as the MJ comparisons go…. Beyonce is Beyonce and MJ is MJ. The fact that most of you fell like you have to discredit her for someone speaking their opinion makes me chuckle. A little advice is to just stop entertaining certain things and you’d be less pressed. At the end of the day it’s only an opinion.

  15. JOHNVIDAL April 18, 2018

    Well, this thing has been getting buzz for two years. So it´s normal it was anticipated by the people who like her. Plus it was also a “comeback”. Plus sometimes all it takes (she is also a great performer so it´s not only that) is getting the biggest stage and effects and voilá, people will like it. Katy Perry´s Superbowl performance was a success and liked by most people, due to the amazing and colorful effects around her.

    I´m not saying she didn´t do well. But it was her same concert with even more dancers than usual. Which is good. But stop elevating this woman to the high heavens because she is so far from being the best music act in history or something. She lacks so many things for that. Starting with songwriting and originality.

  16. DanYiel Iman April 19, 2018

    Which it’s awesome & that’s crazy that I never knew about Coachella being on YouTube last year!!
