Sad news for fans who were expecting to see Solange Knowles at Coachella, as the singer announced that she will no longer be performing at the three-day festival this weekend.
The festival organizers at Coachella released the official announcement on their twitter account, explaining that “Due to some major production delays”, Solange’s performance has been canceled. “She sends her apologies, and she looks forward to performing at Coachella in the future.”
SOLANGE KNOWLES WILL NO LONGER BE PERFORMING AT THE COACHELLA, THEY ARE SAYING IT IS DUE TO MAJOR PRODUCTION DELAYS. BUT WHAT I FIND FUNNY IS, THIS INFORMATION WAS REVEALED BY COACHELLA’S OFFICIAL TWITTER ACCOUNT NOT SOLANGE HERSELF, DID COACHELLA PULL HER OUT? pic.twitter.com/Ksm7ZVLpWh— Jamz100.1FM (@Jamz1001FM) April 9, 2019
Solange made a surprise guest appearance last year during her sister, Beyonce’s set, coined “Beychella“. The unexpected cancellation has upset some of her fans, who were looking forward to the singer performing songs from her new album, “When I Get Home,” released in March.
