Shows pushed back six months
It’s official! Coachella and Stagecoach have been pushed back six months due to the coronavirus outbreak. Organizers Goldenvoice confirmed the news Tues (March 10th) after much speculation.
“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. 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,” Goldenvoice shares.
It continues, “Coachella will now take place on October 9, 10 and 11 and October 16, 17 and 18, 2020. Stagecoach will take place on October 23, 24 and 25, 2020. All purchases for the April dates will be honored for the rescheduled October dates. Purchasers will be notified by Friday, March 13 on how to obtain a refund if they are unable to attend.
“Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you in the desert this fall.”
There’s no word yet which artists will be participating, but Coachella headliners include Frank Ocean, Rage Against the Machine and Travis Scott with Thomas Rhett, Carrie Underwood and Eric Church helming Stagecoach.
It’s assumed Church will still headline one night of Stagecoach as he sent his email followers a postponement message earlier today.
News comes as SXSW in Austin is canceled as well as the Ultra Music Fest in Miami. Many acts including Pearl Jam and Sons of Apollo have postponed tours around the world due to the frenzy.
