Beyoncé will not headline Coachella this year, due to her pregnancy, the festival confirmed Thursday afternoon.

"Following the advice of her doctors to keep a less rigorous schedule in the coming months, Beyoncé has made the decision to forgo performing at the 2017 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival," organizers Goldenvoice said in a statement released today.

On the bright side, the fest announced "she will be a headliner" for its 2018 installment. A headlining replacement for this April's two-weekend event has yet to be announced. Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar are the other two previously confirmed headliners.

Beyoncé announced earlier this month she and Jay Z are expecting twins.
