One of the music industry’s biggest festivals has now decided to postpone its April schedule. This information followed just hours after the report Coachella Valley got three new cases.
Yashar Ali of HuffPost/New York Magazine has confirmed with his sources that the festival is rescheduled to the weekends of October 9 and 16—without postponing it to 2021—six months later than planned as to allow for fears and concerns over COVID-19 to pipe down. He also stated that the current lineup will not be changed since the festival typically employs a six-month radius clause for performing artists following its April dates.
Scoop: A source familiar with the arrangements tells me that the Coachella festival will be postponed due to Coronavirus concerns and moved to the weekends of October 9 and 16.
As of now, the same lineup is confirmed to perform.
