Rumors Fly About A Potential Destiny’s Child Reunion At Coachella 2018

Coachella is known for reuniting big acts for the festival, and if you believe the rumors it looks like they may have secured another one for 2018. We already know that Beyoncé is headlining the event (following her cancellation earlier this year due to her pregnancy.)  Now fans are speculating that she’ll reunite with Destiny’s Child for the performance, and believe she is hinting at a reunion after she shared on her official website a picture of herself. In the snap, Bey was seen teaming up her denim jacket with an AC/DC T-shirt, and it didn’t take too long for fans to notice that the superstar only showed the “DC” part in the pic. It eventually led fans to believe that Bey hinted at the highly-anticipated reunion as “DC” is the initials of Destiny’s Child.  Meanwhile, Bey’s team declined to comment on the possible Destiny’s Child reunion at Coachella in April next year.
