After a bombshell announcement early this month that she is pregnant with twins, Beyonce will not perform at this year’s Coachella as previously announced, but will headline in 2018, the festival announced on Thursday.
“Following the advice of her doctors to keep a less rigorous schedule in the coming months, Beyoncé has made the decision to forgo performing at the 2017 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival,” said a statement on Coachella’s Facebook page, which also revealed that she will headline next year.
Coachella has not yet announced who will headline in place of the megastar, who put on an elegant performance at this month’s Grammys. She was scheduled to perform on April 15 and 22.
Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar are also headlining the fest, with Radiohead performing on April 14 and 21 and Lamar performing on April 16 and 23.
It’s unclear just how far along Beyonce is, but she showed off a visible baby bump in both her Feb. 1 announcement (one that swiftly broke an Instagram record) and her Grammys performance, where she sang “Lemonade” tracks “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles.”
She also won best urban contemporary album at the awards show, and best music video for “Formation.” Though she lost for album of the year, Adele, who won the prize, paid tribute to her in her speech, and even said backstage, “I thought it was her year. What the f— does she have to do to win album of the year?”
