Coachella Postponed 6 Months

March 10, 2020

COACHELLA is reportedly postponed by six months over coronavirus concerns just days after SXWS and Pearl Jam's 2020 tour are axed.

 

But sources say Coachella could be pushed back until the weekends of October 9 and 16, according to a New York Magazine reporter, who assured music lovers the lineup wouldn't be affected.

 

Rock band Rage Against the Machine, rapper Travis Scott and singer Frank Ocean all got top billing to headline the three-day party in the desert, alongside Calvin Harris, Lana del Rey, Lil Nas X, 21 Savage and dozens of others.

 

The news comes after Austin called off the  South by Southwest festival, which usually attracts around 100, 000 people to the Texas city, while Pearl Jam confirmed they wouldn't be exposing their fans in North America.

 

"We’ve worked hard with all our management and business associates to find other solutions or options but the levels of risk to our audience and their communities is simply too high for our comfort level," the rockers wrote on Twitter.

 

The BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells was also halted this week amid fears of the deadly disease hitting the Coachella Valley, as officials say holding the tennis tournament would be "too great a risk, at this time."

The first weekend of the mega-event Coachella was set to kick off Friday, April 10 - Sunday, April 12th and round two was scheduled for the following week - but recent reports suggest the glam weekend may not go ahead as planned.
