We knew it was a possibility, but did anyone really want it to be so? BeyoncÃ©, Queen Bey, Mrs Carter, one of musicâ€™s greatest performers to ever grace a stage and first woman to ever headline the music festival since Bjork in 2007 Â will not be performing at this yearâ€™s Coachella Music Festival.
In a statement sent in by festival producer Goldenvoice and Parkwood Entertainment to the Associated Press, BeyoncÃ©, who is pregnant with twins will not be able to perform at this yearâ€™s festival under doctor orders. The statement said, “Following the advice of her doctors to keep a less rigorous schedule in the coming months, BeyoncÃ© has made the decision to forgo performing at the 2017 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival”. Both Parkwood Entertainment and Goldenvoice agree that Beyonce will return to headline the 2018 festival.
It was just last month that BeyoncÃ© and Jay-Z announced their pregnancy via Instagram and while no one knows when their babies are due, her doctor is asking her to maintain from rigorous activity which could help narrow down a time line, to all her fans. The last time BeyoncÃ© was seen at Coachella was in 2014 when she jumped on stage and danced to her sister’s set.
Although Coachella is losing one of their headliners and no one is certain over who will take over for Queen Bey, the festival still has two-other powerhouse artist headlining; Kendrick Lamar and Radiohead. Lamar will perform on April 16th and 23rd, and Radiohead on the 15th and 22nd. Some artist on the line up set to perform at the festival are Capital Cities, DJ Khaled, Gucci Mane, DJ Snake, Hanz Zimmerman, Lorde and many more.
