Instead will headline the festival in 2018.
Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment and Coachella festival producer Goldenvoice issued a statement:
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. However, Goldenvoice and Parkwood are pleased to confirm that she will be a headliner at the 2018 festival. Thank you for your understanding.
This would’ve been the first time Beyoncé performed solely at Coachella (she has made appearances with Jay-Z and Solange), and it would’ve been the first female to headline since Bjork in 2007.
No word yet on who will replace her in the Saturday headlining slots, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted. Do you have any guesses? Tell us your thoughts here.
