*Beyoncé will not perform at Coachella this year after all.
The singer, pregnant with twins, was ordered by her doctors to skip the annual concert event, according to a joint statement from the festival and her company Parkwood Entertainment.
But organizers said she will headline the festival in 2018.
“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,” the statement said. “However, Goldenvoice and Parkwood are pleased to confirm that she will be a headliner at the 2018 festival. Thank you for your understanding.”
Beyoncé was originally set to perform April 15 and 22. It would have marked her first time she performed at the festival, and she would have been the first female act to headline Coachella since Bjork in 2007.
So far, no word on who will fill her vacated slot. Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar will also headline the two-weekend festival in Indio, California. Radiohead will perform on April 14 and 21, and Lamar on April 16 and 23.
Beyoncé, who last appeared at Coachella in 2014 when she danced onstage during her sister Solange’s set, announced last month that she and Jay Z are expecting twins. It is not clear when Beyoncé is due to give birth. Earlier this month, the pregnant singer performed at the Grammy Awards, where she won two honors for her album, “Lemonade.”
