Coachella is postponed to October

The festival was previously set to run over two weekends in April.

Coachella, one of the largest annual music festivals in the US, has been postponed due to ccoronavirus concerns. The Indio, California-based event will be pushed back from April to October, organizer Goldenvoice announced Tuesday.

Another Goldenvoice festival, the country music-oriented Stagecoach, has also been postponed.

“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,” Goldenvoice said in a statement. “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 2020 was originally set to run for two weekends, April 10-12 and April 17-19, with the same talent lineups performing both weekends.

It will now run October 9-11 and October 16-18. Stagecoach 2020 has been pushed back from April to October 23-25.

Goldenvoice said that passes purchased for the original April dates of Coachella and Stagecoach will be honored on the October dates. For those who would prefer to receive a refund for their tickets, Goldenvoice will make refund information available on March 13.

With 2020 edition now rescheduled for six months later, it is unclear whether all the same artists will be able to perform on the new dates. That could be especially upsetting to ticket-holders who planned to attend specifically to see some of this year’s acts.
