The festival -- April 13-15 and April 20-22 -- marks the first concert scheduled by Beyonce since the pop superstar had twins in June with her husband, rap mogul Jay-Z. She was due to headline Coachella last year but was replaced with Lady Gaga after Beyonce's doctors advised her not to perform so late in her pregnancy. Coachella, whose promoters are fond of splashy headliners, is also the first full concert on the books for Eminem since the top-selling rapper in history released his latest album, "Revival," last month. The Coachella announcement comes amid growing signs that traditional rock bands are losing their cultural dominance in the United States. Despite the headliners, Coachella at other set-times will feature plenty of rock acts, mostly with an indie bent, including The War on Drugs, alt-J, Haim and Portugal.
