Ladies, gents, and all in between, especially hippie Tumblr girls, proud hipsters across the world, and Vanessa Hudgens, it’s time to get in formation for your annual Coachella pilgrimage. Beyoncé is apparently headlining the annual music, dust, and cultural appropriation festival for the first time next year.

According to a source, as reported to Consequence of Sound, Queen Bey will be one of the three main headliners at the iconic fest in 2017, joining distinguished Beyhive members Kendrick Lamar and Radiohead. As in years past, the festival will take place over two consecutive weekends in April at Indio’s Empire Polo Club.

While this would mark Beyoncé’s first solo Coachella performance, the superstar has previously made surprise appearances during husband Jay-Z and sister Solange's sets at the festival in 2010 and 2014, respectively. It would also be Lamar’s debut as a headliner after performing a solo set in 2012. Next year would mark Radiohead’s third time headlining the festival after memorable sets in 2004 and 2012. An official lineup announcement is expected early next year.

Coachella was also the setting of Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj’s effortlessly joyful video for “Feeling Myself”. Could we expect a sequel celebrating Bey’s headlining turn, or perhaps an onstage performance? Only time will tell.
