Coachella has reportedly, booked Lady Gaga to replace Beyoncé as the festival’s Saturday night headliner. An official announcement is expected in the coming days.
Sources told Billboard, that organizers had reached out to: Adele, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, and Nine Inch Nails in the wake of Beyoncé’s postponement. Ultimately, they landed on Lady Gaga, who will become the first woman to headline the festival since Björk in 2007. Beyoncé, who is pregnant with twins, will instead headline the 2018 edition of the festival.
Gaga joins an impressive 2017 lineup which includes fellow headliners Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar. The festival will also feature: Lorde, Bon Iver, The xx, Future, ScHoolboy Q, New Order, Father John Misty, and Future Islands. The festival once again runs two weekends — April 14th – 16th and 21st – 23rd — at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.
Is going with Gaga a bad decision? Or do you think she makes a good replacement?
