Solange Knowles has pulled the plug on her performances at this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

“Due to major production delays, Solange will unfortunately no longer be performing at this year’s festival,” Coachella announced Sunday night on its official Twitter account. “She sends her sincerest apologies, and looks forward to performing at Coachella in the future.”

Last year, Solange’s sister Beyoncé headlined the festival and there’s a Netflix documentary on her performance coming out later this month.

This year, Childish Gambino, Tame Impala and Ariana Grande are headlining Coachella. Other performers include Janelle Monae, Khalid, Zedd, Weezer, J Balvin and Kanye West (who will be performing a special Easter Sunday service).

The festival takes place over two weekends, and Solange was slated to perform on both Saturdays.

News that she would no longer be taking the stage left some fans disappointed.

“Solange was the main performance I was looking forward to at Coachella, I’m sick,” one person tweeted.

Someone else wrote: “I was so excited to see Solange at Coachella”

Another fan tweeted:  “Bro solange cancelling her coachella performance ripped my heart out.”

But one Twitter user questioned if “production delays” were really to blame.

“What sort of production does Solange need for Coachella besides her voice and a microphone. Insane. Production issues my a–,” the person wrote.

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival runs from April 12-14 and April 19-21 in Indio, Calif.
