Beyonce, who is pregnant with twins, has pulled out of this year’s Coachella citing advice from her doctors.
The 35-year-old was unveiled as the headline act on January 3, a day before tickets went on sale.
She revealed her pregnancy to the public a month later. Coachella organizers were said to be unaware of the news until she posted the now iconic announcement on Instagram.
A statement released by her team and festival producer Goldenvoice on Thursday read: ‘Following the advice of her doctors to keep a less rigorous schedule in the coming months, Beyonce 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.’
