Bad news for Beyoncé fans who bought their Coachella tickets: Queen B has officially pulled out of the music festival.
On Thursday, a representative for the expectant mother confirmed the news to the Associated Press. In a statement, the rep said Bey, who’s pregnant with twins, was just “following the advice of her doctors to keep a less rigorous schedule in the coming months.”
Beyoncé announced her pregnancy about a month after the Coachella lineup was unveiled, leading many to speculate whether she’d be able to grace the festival with her presence.
There is a silver lining though ― Bey will headline the 2018 festival. There’s been no news yet about who will take her place (let’s be real, no one can) this year, though.
The Coachella Twitter account retweeted AP’s story and shared the news on its official Facebook page, telling fans, “Stay tuned for more information.”
Naturally, folks aren’t too happy about the announcement. Many took to Twitter to air their grievances.
No word yet on whether the festival will offer refunds of any kind, but The Huffington Post has reached out and will update this post accordingly.
