Lady Gaga will replace Beyoncé at Coachella. The festival made the official announcement this evening with the issuing of an updated lineup poster.

According to Billboard who was tipped off earlier this afternoon, “it was important to Coachella organizers that a female performer replace Beyoncé.”

With her recent Metallica performance at the GRAMMYs, Gaga has proven she’ll fit right into the long-standing predominately rock festival.
