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.

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.

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