Friday night was the first night of FYF this year, and the first Friday set the festival has ever had. The biggest set of the whole night belonged to Missy Elliott, who performed her only live set for all of 2017. Fans are still awaiting her seventh studio album, which will be her first full album since 2005. So, to put it simply, her set on Friday was a really big deal. How big? Big enough to draw celebrities like Beyonce, Solange, Katy Perry, and Janet Jackson. The non-celebrity crowd went completely nuts as well, because come on, this is Missy Elliott we're talking about.

Fans caught Katy Perry on camera while dancing in the crowd.


Janet Jackson was there too, and couldn't hide her joy at seeing Missy on stage.

The most bonkers of all was the appearance of both Beyoncé and Solange

Could that be the best photo..... ever?

Tyler the Creator was there too, to party the night of his album release day.

Put simply, Missy Elliott killed it, and we're all living in her wake.
