Lady Gaga will fill in for Beyoncé at Coachella, Billboard reports. The news comes less than a week after it was announced that the Lemonade star, who is pregnant with twins, would not perform at this year’s festival; but would headline in 2018 instead. Gaga is expected to take the stage on Saturday April 15 and 22, when Bey was originally scheduled to play. With this change, the Joanne singer joins Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar as official headliners for the music fest.

The official organizers of the Indio, California-based festival, Goldenvoice and AEG Live, have not yet officially announced Beyoncé’s replacement, but are currently “finalizing plans” for Gaga’s performance, according to Billboard. The singer has not said anything about performing at the festival, either.
If Gaga’s set will be anything like her Super Bowl Halftime Show, get ready to get blown away. See the full lineup below (sans Gaga for now).
