The festival originally was about to take place this year on April 10–12 and 17–19 with Rage Against the Machine, Travis Scott, and Frank Ocean as headliners, then the festival was moved to October 9–11 and 16–18 due to the coronavirus outbreak but it was also canceled.
Coachella shared a post on Instagram and they mentioned the huge message in the post, “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. A year without Coachella and Stagecoach is hard for us to comprehend, but we have every intention of returning in 2021.
“As of now, Coachella weekend one will take place April 9 — 11, 2021 and weekend two will be April 16 — 18, 2021. Stagecoach is set for April 21 — 25, 2021. We look forward to sharing our new line up and more information. We can’t wait to be together in the desert again when it is safe,” the organizers added.
This will be the first year that Coachella has not taken place since 2000, which was the year after its inaugural edition.
All 2020 tickets will be honoured for the 2021 festival, with further instructions regarding refunds and roll overs set to be sent out to ticketholders by the end of Monday (June 15).
