Solange has pulled out of Coachella, citing "major production delays."

The Grammy-winning singer had been a top-billed performer at the music festival and was scheduled to perform on Saturday.

The festival announced the cancellation Sunday night on Twitter, adding that she "sends her sincerest apologies, and looks forward to performing at Coachella in the future."

A spokesperson for Solange declined to comment further to BuzzFeed News.

Due to major production delays, Solange will unfortunately no longer be performing at this year's festival. She sends her sincerest apologies, and looks forward to performing at Coachella in the future.

Fans are not taking the news too well.

Many said Solange was the main reason they even decided to go to Coachella in the first place.

Some said it's not the first time they had a Solange show canceled on them.

Coincidentally, Solange's cancellation coincided with the announcement of the Netflix documentary about Beyoncé's 2018 Coachella performance.

Now, of course, people are offering all sorts of suggestions of who should fill in.

@coachella Can we have @carlyraejepsen take her place?

Smash Mouth threw their hat in the ring.

But really, there's only one option worth considering:

Replace her with two hours of Old Town Road Remix on a loop. https://t.co/ckmhabDMVc
