The celeb-and-flower-studded 2017 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is back. The festival takes place in the California desert for the next two weekends. Weekend one runs from Friday, April 14 to Sunday, April 16, and weekend two from Friday, April 21 to Sunday, April 23.

Coachella 2017 was off to a rough start. Things seemed promising when Beyoncé announced she was headlining the show, but then the world found out she was pregnant with twins. (Congrats, BTW, Bey.) It wasn’t Beyoncé’s pregnancy that threw off her Coachella debut—it was how pregnant she was. If you saw her Grammys performance and thought to yourself, “There’s no way she’ll be at Coachella,” you weren’t alone. Her doctor agreed.

Luckily, the festival was able to book Lady Gaga, who killed it at her Super Bowl halftime show this year, as a replacement. Other big acts include Lorde, Kendrick Lamar, Radiohead and Travis Scott.

For those still hunting for tickets, festival passes are available for weekend two with the “Outstanding in the Field” package. If you can’t afford the $399 GA price tag, you can live stream the event here.

The past few years have been difficult for the uber-popular festival. Will 2017 be Coachella’s comeback year? We’ll just have to wait and see.

If not, Beyoncé is headlining in 2018.
