Beyonce’s next big gig revealed

GET your denim cut-offs, glitter eyeshadow, and crochet crop tops ready ... the line-up for Coachella 2018 has finally been confirmed.

Beyonce will make her comeback after the birth of her twins as one of the headline acts at Coachella, the festival confirmed today.

She'll be joined by The Weeknd and rapper Eminem at the hot-ticket event, held in California across two weekends in April.

It marks the first concert scheduled by Queen Bey since the birth of her twins Sir and Rumi in June last year (she was due to headline Coachella in 2017 but pulled out due to her pregnancy).

The festival will be held over two weekends, April 13-15 and April 20-22, at the Empire Polo Club in Indio.

Beyonce's appearance on the Coachella bill is not a surprise.

She was due to headline the festival last year but was replaced with Lady Gaga after doctors advised her not to perform so late in her pregnancy.

The Single Ladies singer promised to perform at the 2018 dates instead. There have been persistent rumours she may be joined by her former Destiny's Child band mates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.

Coachella is the first full concert on Eminem's schedule since the Lose Yourself rapper released his latest album, Revival, last month.

Can't Feel My Face singer The Weeknd has played at Coachella before ... but the 2018 festival will mark his first time as a headline act.

Rappers Cardi B, Tyler, the Creator, Migos, French Montana and 6lack will also perform on the hip hop-dominated bill, along with SZA, Miguel, Portugal the Man, Haim, David Byrne, alt-J, Post Malone, and the War on Drugs.

Melbourne-based Riptide singer Vance Joy is also on the line-up, along with Australians Tash Sultana and Alison Wonderland.
