Coachella 2020 has officially been postponed until October due to concerns regarding the coronavirus.
After numerous reports from sources, Goldenvoice, the producer of Coachella, confirmed the postponement in a statement released on Tuesday evening.
“At the direction of the County of Riverside and local health authorities, we must sadly confirm the rescheduling of Coachella and Stagecoach due to COVID-19 concerns. While this decision comes at a time of universal uncertainty, we take the safety and health of our guests, staff and community very seriously. We urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials.”
Coachella will now take place during the weekends of October 9th-11th and 16th-18th. Meanwhile, Stagecoach is set for October 23rd-25th. Both festivals will still take place in Indio, California.
All tickets for the festivals’ original April dates will be honored for the rescheduled October dates. Those who cannot attend the rescheduled dates will be informed on how to get a refund by March 13th.
At this time, there’s no word on which artists will play the rescheduled dates. The original Coachella lineup featured Rage Against the Machine, Frank Ocean, and Travis Scott, as well as Lana Del Rey, Thom Yorke, FKA twigs, Danny Elfman, Lil Uzi Vert, and Run the Jewels, among many others.
