(ABC News) — It’s official — the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival lineup has been announced, and The Weeknd, Beyonce and Eminem are headlining Friday, Saturday and Sunday respectively.

Organizers announced the lineup on Twitter Tuesday evening.

For Beyonce, her headlining set is a bit of a do-over. She was scheduled to perform at last year’s festival but had to back out when she became pregnant with twins.

Lady Gaga filled in for her. But the Beyhive online was extremely excited for her return.
