Lady Gaga has replaced Beyoncé as a headliner at the 2017 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which will take place April 14 to April 16 and April 21 to April 23 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. Lady Gaga will headline the Saturday shows on April 15 and April 22. Beyoncé dropped out of the festival on February 23, because of her pregnancy (she’s due to give birth to twins sometime in mid-2017), but it has been announced that Beyoncé plans to make up for the cancellation by being a headliner at the 2018 Coachella Festival.  Radiohead will headline the 2017 Coachella Festival on April 14 and April 21, while Kendrick Lamar will headline on April 16 and April 23. Other performers at Coachella in 2017 include Bon Iver, Future, the XX, Lorde, Travis Scott and Justice. The event is produced by Goldenvoice, a division of AEG Presents.
