The 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will see some of music’s biggest stars, including Beyoncé, Eminem, and The Weekend, headline the two-weekend event this April in Indio, California.

The Beyoncé news is a conciliation to many music fans and comes as no surprise to industry observers, as Beyoncé was forced to postpone her performance last year due to pregnancy. Instead, the Lemonade singer stood onstage alongside her rapper husband Jay-Z and her singer sister Solange. Lady Gaga, nevertheless, filled in as a replacement headliner.

As for Eminem, who’s making headlines of late for his President Donald Trump-bashing songs and his politically charged new album, it’ll mark the Grammy-winner’s first appearance at the plush Polo Club event since 2012.

Other notable Coachella 2018 performances will feature a wide range of R&B talent, from new faces like St. Louis, Missouri crooner SZA, who recently performed on Saturday Night Live and Grammy-winning singer Miguel.

The weekends from 13-15 and April 20-22 will also see performances from Sza, Migos, Cardi B, David Byrne, Vince Staples, St. Vincent, the War on Drugs, Portugal. the Man, among many others.
