Fans who have been waiting to return to Coachella will have to wait a bit longer.
The festival has reportedly been pushed back for a third time in under a year, according to a new report from our friends at Rolling Stone.
Full story inside:
Originally planned to take place in April of this year, the iconic California-based music festival was forced to postpone to October of this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
As cases continued to climb over the summer, the festival was then pushed back to April 2021.
Now sources close to AEG and Goldenvoice, the promotional companies behind the festival, suggest to Rolling Stone that the next available window for the festival is the fall of 2021.
A source who works at a talent agency that represents some performers at the festival said it is:
“100 percent moving.”
They went on to say:
“Frankly, they were supposed to announce [the change] over Labor Day. They hadn’t. And they were supposed to announce at the end of September — they hadn’t.”
The source heard from Coachella founder Paul Tollett‘s office that it could be pushed to the first or second week of October 2021.
“They are holding the first three weeks to be safe.”
Original headliners at this year’s Coachella were supposed to be Rage Against the Machine, Travis Scott, and Frank Ocean.
