INDIO, Calif. - Beyonce may have dropped out of this year's Coachella music festival, but her replacement is sure to give a monster of a show.

Billboard reports Lady Gaga will headline both weekends of the festival in place of Beyonce, who postponed her performance after announcing her pregnancy with twins. Gaga will perform on consecutive Saturdays (April 15 and 22.)

Officials are set to finalize and announce the deal in the next couple of days.

Beyonce announced this month she would not be performing at the annual music festival. She will be in the third trimester of her pregnancy during the event. She did say, however, she will be performing at Coachella 2018.

News of Gaga's inclusion comes on the heels of her critically acclaimed Super Bowl LI halftime performance in Houston, Texas, which saw the singer "jump" off the top of NRG Stadium.

Lady Gaga will join fellow headliners Radiohead, Kendrick Lamar, the XX, Bon Iver, Future, Lorde and Justice. Coachella runs April 14-16 and April 21-23.
