Lady Gaga has replaced Beyoncé in this year’s Coachella lineup. The “Million Reasons” singer, recent Super Bowl Halftime performer, and frequent Stern Show guest will be headlining both Saturdays (April 15 and 22) of this year’s popular two-weekend festival in Indio, Calif.

Lady Gaga tweeted out the huge news Tuesday night in the form of an updated festival lineup accompanied by a caption that read “Let’s party in the desert.” Check it out below:

The pop star, who wowed millions with a high-flying wire act during her Halftime performance back in early February, is well known for her on-stage theatrics and impressive production value on tour. Coachella organizers Goldenvoice and AEG Live are reportedly planning to bring her massive stage production to Coachella, too, according to Billboard.

The announcement comes just a few days after the world learned Beyoncé, pregnant with twins, was recusing herself from the music festival so as to not be performing during her third trimester. The “Lemonade” singer has vowed to return in 2018.

Lady Gaga’s Coachella performances precede her upcoming “Joanne World Tour,” which kicks off in August and will see her travel to dozens of cities around the world.
