NEW YORK AP - Beyonce, who is pregnant with twins, will not perform at Coachella this year, but will headline the festival in 2018.
In a statement to The Associated Press on Thursday, Beyonce's Parkwood Entertainment and festival producer Goldenvoice said the singer had to pull out of the famed festival "following the advice of her doctors to keep a less rigorous schedule in the coming months."
The statement also said Beyonce will headline the 2018 festival. It was not clear who will perform in Beyonce's absence. Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar will also headline the two-weekend festival in April in Indio, California.
Goldenvoice is holding a job fair for the upcoming music festivals on Friday, February 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Eldorado Clubhouse.
Goldenvoice posted a statement on Facebook following Thursday's announcement:
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.
