Coachella or Arichella? Why Ariana Grande Totally Owned the Desert Music Festival
Ariana Grande’s career proves to be unstoppable. After the back-to-back launch of her latest two albums and other recent ventures, the musician just can’t stop herself from achieving more.
Her latest feat came at this year’s installation of the famous desert-set music festival, Coachella, where she performed as a history-making headliner.
The 25-year-old recently announced the good news on her Twitter account saying how humbled and excited she was to perform at the famed music festival.
While she didn’t brag about the significance of her performance, her manager Scott Braun was a different story. Right as the pop star posted her statement, Braun expressed his happiness on her behalf. In an Instagram post, the manager announced that Grande will be the youngest headline performer in the festival’s history.
The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is considered to be the premiere festival for indie music. A must-see event, it started out as a concert thrown by the band Pearl Jam back in 1993.
The first installment of the festival was held just months after another famous music festival, Woodstock, and took place at the Indio Empire Polo Club. The festival’s 25,000-strong audience was entertained by performances from rock legends like Tool, Rage Against the Machine, Beck, and Morrissey.
While Coachella started out dominated by rock acts, it has since developed into something more accommodating of other music genres.
But the significance of the singer’s performance doesn’t stop there. Grande is also the fourth female solo artist to carry the event which has always been male-dominated from the get-go. The hitmaker follows the footsteps of artists like Bjork, Lady Gaga, and Beyonce to raise the female artists’ flag at the festival.
Other Coachella headliners this year include Childish Gambino and Tame Impala. They are also joined by other top biller musicians like Solange Knowles, Beyonce’s younger sister, Janelle Monae and 1975.
Considering all these, the pint-sized singer’s fans are probably correct to freak out about their idol’s achievements. Some of them has even dubbed the event as ‘Arichella’.
Grande’s history-making stint at Coachella follows the singer’s best year of her music career. Amidst the controversy about the cancellation of her Grammy Awards Night performance, Grande finally brought home her first ever Grammy-winning for the Best Pop Vocal Album for Sweetener.
Not only that, but she also became the first ever female artist to top herself at the UK singles chart. Her new single, ‘Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored’, booted her other hit single, ‘Thank U, Next’ after weeks on the No.1 spot on the British charts.
But it seems like 2019’s luck isn’t done showering the singer yet. Grande is now off on a much-anticipated world tour to promote her Grammy-winning album until October this year.
