Solange Knowles is missing out on the year’s biggest music festival — Coachella — because her band members were dropping like flies from illness. 

Sources close to production tell TMZ … members of Solange’s band started getting sick, and she couldn’t find the right mix of replacements. We’re told Solange tried out several different musicians, but it just didn’t work … mainly because Solange and co. couldn’t figure out how to work in all the new pieces.  

We’re told Solange didn’t feel like she could deliver a great show for Coachella … and she ultimately decided to pull the plug. Our sources also say she told a bunch of people she didn’t want a half-assed show. 

Solange — who released her new album, “When I Get Home” last month — was scheduled to perform alongside Kid Cudi, Weezer, Tame Impala, J Balvin and Aphex Twin. We’re told she’s devastated she had to cancel.

As you know, her sister, Beyonce, also canceled as a Coachella headliner, but her reason was different … she was pregnant with twins.
