BREAKING: Lady Gaga will replace Beyonce at Coachella
Beyonce will return to Coachella in 2018
Billboard has confirmed from a source that Lady Gaga will replace Beyonce as Coachella’s Saturday night headliner. Although rumored replacements included Daft Punk and Nine Inch Nails, speculators saw Gaga as the obvious replacement given the recent release of Joanne as well as her successful Super Bowl performance.
2017 truly is the year of LADY GAGA.

Many specifically wanted Goldenvoice to choose Lady Gaga to break Coachella’s nearly decade long streak of male or male-fronted acts headlining the three-day music festival. However Gaga’s timeliness and cultural relevance alone rendered her the obvious frontrunner.
Me: Coachella is overrated, too expensive, too sandy, too crowded
Coachella: Lady Gaga is headlining this year

Beyonce, who had to drop out due to her pregnancy, will return to the main stage in 2018.
