The Brief: The best memes from Coachella's first weekend of performances, collabs, and fashion faux-pas.
Move over Fyre Festival, Coachella is back in town and it’s bigger than ever.
2019 marks the twentieth year of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. The event has been recognized as THE premiere, must-see indie music festival and has garnered a savage reputation over 20 years.
Regardless of whether they’ve been or not, people know to expect great things from social media every April when the festival rolls around. This year’s memes do not disappoint.
Haters gonna hate…
Just like the festival itself, Coachella festival-goers have got quite the reputation, too.
They’re often characterized as Caucasian, hipster millennials out for good times, tan lines and a boat load of molly.
It seems people were simultaneously delighted and horrified to find that this year’s Coachella trend is assless chaps…
Though this should come as no surprise, what with the trending Yeehaw Movement.
Festival newcomer, Billie Eilish…
And a surprise collab between Weezer and TLC’s Chilli.
Before warning everyone that they could die at any moment, so they might as well enjoy the time they’ve got. YOLO, am I right?
It’s clear that Childish Gambino’s performance left a lasting impression on many.
Some less favorable moments came in the form of technical difficulties. Despite the beef between Ariana Grande/Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, it’s doubtful that Cardi had anything to do with their mic issues, okurrr?
The second weekend of Coachella is just around the corner…
Best prepare yourselves for more Instagram stories.
