Rihanna is the favourite to replace Beyoncé at Coachella

Coachella festival organisers will be working overtime to find a new headline act after their 2017 line-up was blown-up with the late withdrawal of the Queen Bey.  To the surprise of few, the soon to be mother of twins has pulled out of the iconic California music and arts festival and bookmakers William Hill have already started taking bets on who will replace Bey in the coveted Saturday night headlining spot.

The Queen of the Caribbean, Rihanna ($3), is the early favourite to replace Beyonce, sharing the honors with husband of the former headliner Jay-Z ($3). Another popular pick are French electronic duo Daft Punk ($4).

Canadian superstar Drake ($4) and pop icon Taylor Swift ($5) are all also rated strong chances to step-up to the mantle.

Paying homage to Beyoncé’s roots, Destiny’s Child minus Beyonce are a $26 chance, while for a real throw at the dartboard Backstreet could well and truly be back with the Backstreet Boys at $34.
