While she won’t be reuniting with Destiny’s Child (Kelly Rowland squashed that rumour), Beyonce is apparently still a strong contender to headline Coachella festival in 2018.

The Lemonade artist is one of the rumoured headliners for next year’s event, alongside Eminem and The Weeknd.

Held every year at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California; Coachella 2018 will take place over two weekends in April: 13-15 and 20-22.

This year the festival saw Radiohead, Kendrick Lamar and Lady Gaga perform in the main slots. Gaga filled in for Beyonce after she became pregnant with twins.

Consequence of Sound reports that alongside the “Formation” star, Eminem, who released his new album Revival two weeks ago, will also appear. ”Industry sources” added The Weeknd as the final name.

An official lineup is expected in early January.
