The switch, which was due to Beyonce's pregnancy, was confirmed by Coachella officials who said: "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."

Despite dropping out of this year's festival, Beyonce has been confirmed as a headline act for Coachella 2018 instead. Coachella will run from April 14-16 and April 21-23, 2017 at the Coachella Valley. For more information, visit
