Lorde may have just finally confirmed she is releasing new music this year, as the singer has been announced as part of this year's Coachella line-up.

The Coachella Music Festival has revealed all the big names who will be performing at the six day, two weekend event in April, which takes place in the Coachella Valley in California. 

Festival producer Goldenvoice announced that Beyonce, Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar will headline the festival. It will mark Beyonce's first time performing at the festival. 

Lorde will perform on April 16 and 23 alongside Lamar and DJ Khaled. Singers typically don't play at festivals with exclusively old music, so the announcement means we will likely see some new songs from the 20-year-old star before April.

The singer, who has been working on her second album for several years now, made a surprise appearance at Coachella last year to perform <i>Magnets</i> alongside British duo Disclosure. 

US music magazine Pitchfork wrote on Twitter that it will be Lorde's first full concert in three years. 

She is not the only New Zealand connection this year, as Broods will be performing on April 14 and 21.

Other performers for Coachella 2017 include the xx, Bon Iver, Future, Gucci Mane, Justice, DJ Snake, and Father John Misty. Tickets, including three-day passes, go on sale Wednesday.
