The annual Coachella festival has officially been canceled due to the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic. The promoter, Goldenvoice, officially made the announcement last week.
“Under the continuing health guidance of the County of Riverside, Coachella and Stagecoach 2020 will not take place this October as previously rescheduled. This is not the future that any of us hoped to confront, but our main focus remains the well-being of our fans, staff, artists, desert partners, and everyone involved in the festival”, read the statement.

The statement also states that Coachella plans to return in April 2021 with a new line up! Travis Scott, Frank Ocean, and Rage the Machine were set to headline this year.
“A year without Coachella and Stagecoach is hard for us to comprehend, but we have every intention of retiring in 2021. As of now, Coachella weekend one will take place April 9-11, 2011, and weekend two will be April 16-18, 2021. Stagecoach is set for April 23-25, 2021. We look forward to sharing our new lineups and more information. We can’t wait to be together in the desert again when it is safe.”
