Coachella 2017 just lost its biggest draw.

Beyonce, who is pregnant with twins, has withdrawn from her headlining gig at the April festival, the Associated Press reported Thursday. She will instead headline in 2018.

In a joint statement, Beyonce’s Parkwood Entertainment and festival producer Goldenvoice said the singer had to pull out of the festival “following the advice of her doctors to keep a less rigorous schedule in the coming months.”

The singer was scheduled to perform at the two-weekend festival on April 15 and 22. There is no word yet as to who might replace her. Radiohead and rapper Kendrick Lamar are the 2017 festival’s other headliners.

Beyonce took to Instagram to reveal that she and husband Jay-Z are expecting twins last month.

“We would like to share our love and happiness,” she wrote, sharing a picture of her baby bump. “We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. – The Carters.”

She followed up the announcement with a high-profile performance at the 2017 Grammys, a performance that showed off a double-baby bump and proved to be an powerful ode to pregnancy and motherhood.
