Beyonce, Eminem and The Weeknd to headline Coachella - report

Beyonce, Eminem and The Weeknd have reportedly been tapped to headline California's Coachella festival next year (18).

The Formation singer was originally due to headline the event back in April (17), but was forced to pull out as she was expecting twins.

Having given birth to Sir and Rumi Carter in June (17), according to Consequence of Sound, she is now set to return to perform at the festival which will be held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California in April 2018.

Industry sources tell the website that the Formation singer will be joined by Eminem and The Weeknd in headlining the event's main stage. If the report is true then it will be the first time festival bosses have not signed up any rock acts as headliners.

Rumors have also linked Beyonce with a reunion with her old Destiny's Child bandmates Michelle Williams, Kelly Rowland LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson.

Fans have speculated a top-secret project LaTavia teased on Twitter could be a reunion, more than five years after Beyonce joined Michelle and Kelly to perform at the Super Bowl.

Kelly Rowland has quashed rumors the band will get back together for Coachella however, telling People magazine "I have no idea about any of that. I mean, I gladly accept that very much but it's nothing that we recently talked about."

Both Eminem and The Weeknd would also be playing their first headline Coachella shows, with the former only having appeared in a guest slot with Dr.Dre in 2012. The Weeknd is a regular Coachella performer and appeared as a surprise guest at this year.

An official announcement naming those who will headline the festival is expected next month (Jan18).

Radiohead, Kendrick Lamar and Lady Gaga, who stepped in for Beyonce, headlined the 2017 event.
