Well, we all saw it coming. That much anticipated Beyonce Coachella headliner moment won’t happen…well, this year anyway.

After the multiple-Grammy winning pop star announced that she was expecting twins this summer, Coachella music festival ticket holders become nervous. She could cancel. Or perform in a chair the entire time and therefore, they would not get a chance to experience Sasha Fierce at her fiercest.

The biggest fear is now real.


Beyoncé will not perform at this year’s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, the festival announced on its Facebook.

 “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 on the festival’s Facebook page read.

The “Lemonade” singer was scheduled to perform over two weekends at the festival on April 15 and 22.

She will be there next year, however!  So, there’s that. The organizers of the Indio, California-located fest have not said which act would replace her.

And let’s not forget there are other headliners include Radiohead and rapper Kendrick Lamar. However, the festival has already seen a dip in ticket sales by 12% following the news. Pooh! That’s star power!
