Attention Little Monsters: Lady Gaga is coming to Coachella.

The diva announced Tuesday night she will be performing at the music festival for both weekends in April. Gaga will take the headlining spot that had been Beyonce’s; pregnant with twins, the superstar announced last week that her doctors recommended she bow out. She rescheduled her performance for next year.

Gaga will join the Coachella’s other two headliners, Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar, for the two-weekend festival in Indio, Calif. on April 14-16 and April 21-23.

Instead of performing at Coachella in April, Beyoncé will headline the festival in 2018, she announced in a joint statement with Parkwood Entertainment and the event’s producer Goldenvoice earlier this month.

“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,” the statement said. “However, Goldenvoice and Parkwood are pleased to confirm that she will be a headliner at the 2018 festival. Thank you for understanding.”

Lady Gaga, who will headline Coachella’s Saturday night dates on April 15 and 22, will become the first woman to headline the festival since Bjork in 2007. Radiohead is scheduled to perform on April 14 and 21, and Lamar on April 16 and 23.

Following her Coachella appearance, Gaga’s Joanne World Tour kicks off on Aug. 1 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, B.C. before traveling to venues across the U.S., including The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., the Verizon Center in Washington and AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami, ending on Dec. 14 in Salt Lake City.
