Lady Gaga is reportedly set to replace Beyonce as headliner of this year's Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival.

The 'Formation' singer pulled out of the famous music festival last week on doctor's orders to take it easy now she is expecting twins and it is thought the 'Pokerface' hitmaker will be taking the coveted headline slot.

Gaga is expected to take her place on stage on Saturday April 15 and Saturday April 22 at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, California with bosses finalising plans and expecting to make an official announcement in the next few days.

Organisers were keen to secure a female headliner to replace Beyonce as the 'XO' hitmaker would have been the first woman to headline the iconic festival since 2007, Billboard reports.

Meanwhile, it was previously revealed Beyonce would be postponing her appearance at the festival until2018 after doctors told her to "keep a less rigorous schedule".

Her management company Parkwood Entertainment and festival producer Goldenvoice released a joint statement last week to announce the news.

It read: "Following the advice of her doctors to keep a less rigorous schedule in the coming months, Beyoncé has made the decision to forgo performing at the 2017 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. However, Goldenvoice and Parkwood are pleased to confirm that she will be a headliner at the 2018 festival. Thank you for your understanding."

It comes after Lady Gaga wowed the world with her electric performance during the Super Bowl half-time show.

Alongside the new headliner, Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar will also perform in the top spots at the festival.
