Official: Coachella 2020 Postponed Due To Coronavirus Fears

Published: Tuesday 10th Mar 2020 by Rashad

The coronavirus outbreak has claimed its biggest live event yet: Coachella.

For after days of murmurs, it’s been officially announced the 2020 installment of the festival will not go ahead – well, at least not as planned.

Details below…

Previously set to take place April 10th-12th and April 17th-19th, the Indio, CA, spectacle was to be headlined by Frank Ocean, Travis Scott, and Rage Against The Machine. However, the surfacing of COVID-19 in the region has thwarted plans.

In an unprecedented move, Coachella has been postponed until the fall. No word on whether the same lineup, which included Megan Thee Stallion and DaBaby, will be retained.

A statement from organizers read:

“While this decision comes at a time of universal uncertainty, we take the safety and health of our guests, staff and community very seriously.”

The festival will now be held six months later, from Oct. 9 to 11 and Oct. 16 to 18.
