The lineup for the 2018 Coachella Music and Arts Festival has been announced, and headlining the festival will be a trio of superstars: Canadian R&B singer the Weeknd, pop diva Beyoncé and Detroit rapper Eminem.

Now in its 19th year as a festival, the Goldenvoice–promoted event marks the symbolic opening of the annual festival season. This year‘s installment, which will take place over two weekends from April 13-22, marks the first time a rock act hasn’t headlined.

Also featured will be rapper Tyler, the Creator, experimental pop guitarist St. Vincent, the breakout R&B singer SZA, sibling trio Haim and the wildly popular New York rapper Cardi B.

Veterans taking the stage will include former Talking Heads singer David Byrne, British beat band Jamiroquai, prog-metal band A Perfect Circle and disco-funk producer Nile Rodgers and Chic.

The shift away from rock and booming EDM has most benefited rap, which will be represented through artists including “Rock Star” rapper Post Malone, respected Long Beach artist Vince Staples, the Atlanta trio Migos, ascendent collective Brockhampton and upstart Princess Nokia.

Still, there will be guitars, and they’ll be carried in by members of bands including the War on Drugs, Alt-J, Priests, Fidlar, Fleet Foxes, Cherry Glazerr and the Regrettes.

Remaining tickets go on sale Jan. 5 at noon PST on the Coachella site. General admission passes are $429, while VIP wristbands cost $999. Prices include all taxes and shipping fees.

“Amazing, beyond, iconic, life.” Those are the four words Beyonce’s lead choreographer, JaQuel Knight, used to describe the music superstar’s upcoming Coachella performance.

The GRAMMY winner is set to headline the annual Indio, California music festival in 2018, her first major gig since giving birth to twins Rumi and Sir Carter in June. Beyonce was originally scheduled to perform at the 2017 festival, but postponed her appearance after announcing she was pregnant.

“We're getting ready for Coachella and you know, that's going to change the game,” Knight teased of the highly anticipated performance. “Be ready for a good time. A good ol' time.”

Knight, who was recently named one of Forbes’ 2018 "30 Under 30," first worked with Beyonce while choreographing her iconic 2009 "Single Ladies" music video.

“‘Single Ladies’ is still a moment that I have yet to put into words,” he said of the VMA-winning video. “The impact that that piece had on culture and music and what it's done for Beyonce, even, is just mind-blowing. It's something that's going to hopefully last forever.” Read more...

Prince may have been known for his brilliance in more ways than one, but Beyoncé is highlighting a lesser-known talent of the late legendary artist -- his comedic timing.

The Lemonade singer penned the foreword of Prince: A Private View -- a photo retrospective of the pop icon's life, featuring the photography of Afshin Shahidi (father of Black-ish star Yara Shahidi) -- on shelves Oct. 24. In one excerpt, Queen Bey admits she almost lost it while performing with the "Purple Rain" rocker at the 2004 GRAMMYs, because of how he ended the performance.

“Prince’s timing was genius and his sense of humor, spontaneous and unexpected," Beyonce, 34, writes. "At the end of 'Purple Rain'/'Let’s Go Crazy'/'Crazy in Love' medley, I had no idea he would say what he did. We did talk about making a face but when he blurted out 'Don’t hate us ‘cause we fab,' it took everything I had to keep my composure."

Remembering the performance, we can see why it'd be hard not to!

Backing up, Beyoncé begins the excerpt by telling the story of how the two prepared for their spectacular GRAMMYs appearance. Read more...
Beyoncé’s first concert after childbirth might not be coming as soon as some had hoped.

A rep for the singer denied an Us Weekly report from earlier Thursday that claimed Beyoncé and her rapper husband, JAY-Z, would team up for a benefit concert in New York in support of those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.

The report had stated the concert would take place on Oct. 17 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

A spokesperson for JAY-Z's streaming service Tidal, meanwhile, said nothing has been announced about its annual benefit show.

"TIDAL will be hosting our annual benefit concert with details to soon follow," the rep said. "We have not announced or confirmed any line up or partner organizations, but stay tuned."
Beyoncé officially has her first tour dates for 2018 set: Coachella just announced its festival dates for next year. The two-weekend music and arts festival will take place from Friday, April 13, through Sunday, April 15, and Friday April 20 through Sunday, April 22, respectively.

The "Formation" singer was originally a 2017 Coachella headliner, but after announcing that she's pregnant with twins in February, she had to cancel her appearance (despite delivering a show-stopping performance at the Grammys). To make up for her unexpected cancellation, Beyoncé signed on as a headliner for 2018.

Because of Beyoncé's move, fans who plan to attend next year's fest already know one headliner they'll get to see, which isn't typically the case with Coachella. Even with lineups being announced long after tickets go on sale, passes sell out at a rapid pace -- so with someone like Queen B confirmed for the bill, better act fast if you want to be there.

Advance tickets for Coachella 2018 will be available starting June 2 at 11 a.m. PT. For more information on tickets, click here.
Beyoncé, who is pregnant with twins, will not perform at Coachella this year, but will headline the festival in 2018.

In a statement to The Associated Press on Thursday (Feb. 23), Beyoncé's Parkwood Entertainment and festival producer Goldenvoice said the pop star had to pull out of the famed festival under doctor's orders.

"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 your understanding."

It was not clear who will perform in her absence. Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar will also headline the two-weekend festival in Indio, California. Radiohead will perform on April 14 and 21, and Lamar on April 16 and 23.

Beyoncé was originally set to perform April 15 and 22. It would have marked her first time she performed at the festival, and she would have been the first female act to headline Coachella since Bjork in 2007.

Always one to “cause all this conversation,” Beyoncé had fans and Grammys viewers alike buzzing about her performance Sunday night.

At the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, the expectant diva, 35, took the stage to perform her restrained Lemonade tracks “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles.” Complete with video montages, holograms, and a precariously placed chair, her 10-minute set had the audience rapt — and occasionally scratching their heads!

PEOPLE caught up with JaQuel Knight, Beyoncé’s longtime choreographer (you can thank him for that iconic “Single Ladies” wrist twist!), who opened up about how “mind-blowing” it is to work with Queen Bey, what her goddess-inspired Grammys performance meant — and if she’ll take the stage at Coachella!

How did last night’s performance come together?

We’ve been working five weeks on this, since January, and then we also just started developing the number “Love Drought” right after [the Formation World] Tour, so the number’s been in development for a while. Read more...

GRAMMY Award show producers are staying coy on what exactly will happen when Beyonce hits the stage on Sunday, but here's what we do know.

ET has learned that Beyonce's performance might include the singer dressed in gold and appearing on a giant turntable. The theme might be the diva's journey and evolution from child performer to superstar with actresses playing her at different stages of her life.

"Whenever she comes, she brings it," executive producer Ken Ehrlich told ET's Kevin Frazier. "Let's hope that -- if that happens -- it'll be pretty amazing."

The GRAMMY winner isn't expected to do any high-flying acrobatics or over-the-top stunts, considering that she is pregnant with twins, but Ehrlich said that her growing baby bump adds an extra glow that could make for an extra special performance.

"It's the glory of motherhood. She looks more radiant than ever," Ehrlich said. "She looks so beautiful." Read more...
Though the Grammys haven’t officially announced Beyoncé as a performer, rumors have been flying all week. And in case you spent that week under a rock, Beyoncé is also pregnant. This morning, TMZ reports the future Carter twins mean Beyoncé will be taking things slower at the Grammys than she usually does at live performances.

According to TMZ’s sources, Beyoncé is in rehearsals for a Grammys performance, but her full routine won’t be locked down until the night before the show. Her producers reportedly have a couple of strategies to fill the stage and keep the audience occupied, including an elaborate digital backdrop and guest cameos.

Beyoncé is also set to headline both weekends of Coachella in April. Yesterday, TMZ reported festival organizers haven’t communicated with Beyoncé since the pregnancy announcement, but they aren’t making alternate plans.

Beyonce and Adele are both set to perform at 2017 Grammy Awards, it's been confirmed.

The R&B superstar and Hello singer will go head-to-head in the categories for Album of The Year, Record of The Year and Song of The Year and Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich is confident both will perform on the night.

He told Billboard: "Very few people say no to the Grammys. Over all of the years I've been doing the show, there have been [only] three or four acts who've actually said no.

"But I can tell you that Adele and Beyoncé are not two of them. We have every anticipation that both of them will be with us in February.

"We love a good horse race. It's a fine line: We love the competition aspect of it, but it's really more - here's the cliché - the family of music. I don't know how many of those three categories they're in together that we'll announce during the telecast, but we'll probably come pretty close. When you can start with that as a foundation for a show, you're in pretty good shape." Read more...

On Thursday, Beyoncé hosted a holiday party for her record company, Parkwood Entertainment, at the Wilshire Ebell Theater in L.A. There was a screening of Lemonade (complete with popcorn featuring a silhouette of her in "Formation," and Lemonheads candy) and a full-blown exhibit of all Bey's Lemonade costumes. The singer took to the stage to perform "All Night"!






Ted Owen & Co. are proud to be offering a unique collection of 12 original professionally produced Betacam video tapes of Beyoncé Knowles. The collection of tapes document the earliest music video appearance of Girls Tyme showcasing and starring a then 10 year old Beyoncé Knowles.

The collection, dating from 1992, consists of approximately two and half hours of footage depicting Beyoncé playing to camera in several locations, working out dance routines, rehearsing for a live performance in addition to performing at an artists showcase in San Francisco. There is additional unedited footage of Beyoncé at the Record Plant recording studios in Sausalito California, working on dance routines for what was intended to be her first professionally recorded music video.

This recently unearthed and never seen original footage offers the viewer a candid insight into a 10 year old Beyoncé developing her craft that would ultimately make her the world's biggest pop stars. Read more...
