Lady Gaga will headline Coachella in place of Beyonce, who will be on maternity leave


Even Beyoncé needs some time off for maternity leave.

After she announced she was stepping down from headlining Coachella, Lady Gaga, fresh off a well-received Super Bowl halftime performance, announced Tuesday night that she would take Beyoncé's place. 

The other two headliners are Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar. The festival takes place in Indio, Calif. on April 14-16 and April 21-23. 

Gaga confirmed the swap on Twitter, saying, "Let's party in the desert!"

Gaga fans were, unsurprisingly, ecstatic.

She's the first female Coachella headliner in a decade.

Consequence of Sound reported Gaga wasn't the festival's first choice. Organizers had reportedly reached out to Adele, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake and Nine Inch Nails. Beyoncé will headline the festival next year. 

What do you think of Lady Gaga stepping in for Beyoncé?
