Madonna 'Excited' About Performing at Festival

Madonna will take the stage next month at the seventh annual Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, Calif.

Her appearance is scheduled April 30 in the Sahara dance tent, the Southern California desert festival announced Wednesday.

"I've never performed at a festival," the 47-year-old pop star said in a statement, "and I'm especially excited about playing at Coachella before I start my own tour."

The Coachella festival, which opens April 29, will also include performances by Depeche Mode, Tool, Daft Punk and Massive Attack.
