Queen B headlining one of the most popular music festivals in the country is exciting for more than the simple fact that she is Beyoncé: She’s also the first solo female artist to headline Coachella in the last decade and the first black woman ever to headline the California-based festival.

Since Coachella’s inception in 1999, only two women have headlined the star-studded festival. Before Beyoncé, Bjork headlined the festival in 2007 and once before that in 2002. Portishead ― a three-person English rock band whose lead singer is a woman ― headlined Coachella in 2008.

That’s a pretty abysmal track record.

And we won’t be there for Weekend 2, to witness whichever hairstyle Taylor Swift chooses to unveil next. We will be occupying a place that is not Indio, Calif., and will have to resign ourselves to spending the days without flower crowns, crop tops or fringe booties.
