As 2017 fades away into the distance and a fresh year arrives, it is time to focus on what 2018 has to offer to make it fan-f*ckin-tastic! From long-awaited sequels and the television series that will be worth staying in with a bottle of wine for, to killer events around the UK, here are 10 things to look forward to in 2018.
1. Beyoncé headlining at Coachella
If Beyoncé headlining isn’t enough to make you head straight over to California for the biggest music festival around, we really don’t know what will. Rumours are even suggesting everything from a full-blown Destiny’s Child reunion to a handful of special guests, but whatever B’s got planned it’s going to be a MOMENT. We couldn’t be more jealous of the lucky few with tickets to Coachella in 2018 to see her.
2. Friends on Netflix
Okay, so this may be old news now but… could we BE any happier? (Answer: nope). The greatest TV show from the 90’s has landed on Netflix, and 2018 has officially already won. If you’ve already made your way through the entire series of Friends since it launched a week ago then, firstly, well-played and secondly you can watch it all over again, because you can.
3. The whole Kardashian baby thing
2018 will see the birth of three Kardashian-Jenner babies, or is it just two? Who knows. Either way there will be some tiny additions to the KUWTK that we’re just losing our sh*t over.
4. An all-female reboot of “Ocean’s 8”
An all-female cast film? This is what we’re talking about. Huge names such as Dakota Fanning, Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway and, wait for it… RIHANNA, have rallied up to bring you this “gender-flipped” film of the year.
5. Series 4 of Love Island
The TV show we were all glued to last summer is coming back for season 4 in 2018… YAAAAAS!
6. A joint Jay Z and Beyoncé album
The QWEEN is back and rumour has it she’s set to release an album with bae Jay Z in 2018. There’s no secret of the dramas that have been going off in their personal lives (of course it isn’t) so it should be interesting to see how this one goes. Bey is our absolute favourite babe and it’s all girl power feels in terms of this, but we’re pretty sure it’s going to be f*cking incredible! Who’s with us?
7. Rihanna to host the 2018 Met Gala
It might seem like a lifetime away but the prepping for fashion’s biggest night out is well underway. RiRi is set to host the event with inspirational babe Amal Clooney, and the theme will be “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”. Mark it in your calendars babes – 30th April!
8. Kendrick Lamar heads out on tour
Already one of the most exciting figures in rap music, all signs point to Kendrick’s 2018 tour being something to get onboard with, and we can’t wait to see what he pulls out of the bag. Put it in your calendar for February 2018. The countdown is ON.
9. Ariana Grande is making a comeback
In the very last moments of 2017, Ariana Grande teased new music from her forthcoming album, on a sparkly Insta video (have a look!). Ariana took a much needed and much respected time away from the mic towards the end of 2017, and we can’t wait to hear new music from her in 2018.
10. A Royal Wedding
It’s the year of another Royal Wedding! Although there’s no public holiday, the pubs and bars are going to stay open later! That’s definitely something to shout about, right?! May is going to be HUGE and we personally can’t wait (and not just for the late night champagne). Chin Chin to one of our newest fave couples!
