KOI Judges’ comments

 

“Beyoncé herself provided context for this event: ‘Thank you for letting me be the first black woman to headline Coachella,’ but Cory FitzGerald’s truly thoughtful and immersive design framed the event perfectly. It is rumored Beyoncé rehearsed 11 hours a day in the run-up to the show—we suspect that would have seemed like a ‘short day’ to Cory and his team, and the result of a lot of hard work was apparent.”
