Beyonce, Eminem and The Weeknd to headline Coachella

Beyonce will return to headline Coachella after pulling out last year because of her pregnancy, the festival has confirmed.

The singer is to top the bill of the Californian event alongside Eminem and The Weeknd, it was announced on Tuesday.

Beyonce, 36, was to headline last year but stepped down on the advice of her doctors to keep a less demanding schedule and was replaced by Lady Gaga.

The former Destiny’s Child star and her husband Jay Z welcomed twins Rumi and Sir Carter in June.

Beyonce will close both Saturdays of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which takes place over two weekends in April in Indio, California.

Other acts include Jamiroquai, King Krule, The War On Drugs, David Byrne and Fleet Foxes.

Tickets, which start at 429 dollars (£316), go on sale at 8pm UK time on Friday.
