Coachella To Get Rescheduled Once Again

9th October 2020 | Category: Concerts

Coachella and its sister country festival Stagecoach have already been postponed multiple times as the coronavirus pandemic continues. 

In March, the festivals announced a move from April to October; Friday would’ve been the first weekend of Coachella if those plans had stuck, but in June, promoters Goldenvoice announced a postponement until April of 2021. 

Now Rolling Stone reports that the festival is likely headed for another rescheduling, this time to October of 2021. Here’s more from Rolling Stone:

Coachella is “100% moving” again, one person who works at a major talent agency that represents popular festival performers told Rolling Stone. 

“Frankly, they were supposed to announce [the change] over Labor Day. They hadn’t. And they were supposed to announce at the end of September — they hadn’t.” 

The source says they have heard from Goldenvoice CEO and Coachella founder Paul Tollett’s office that the new date will either be in the first or second week of October 2021, “but they are holding the first three weeks to be safe” as not all artists have confirmed availability.

Representatives for AEG and Goldenvoice, and a Riverside County health official wouldn’t comment on another postponement to Rolling Stone. Meanwhile, the city manager of Indio, CA, Mark Scott, told them that, “It would not surprise me if they had to defer again.”

Coachella’s original 2020 lineup included headliners Rage Against the Machine, Frank Ocean, Travis Scott,  Lana Del Rey, Thom Yorke, Run The Jewels, Calvin Harris, Flume, Lil Uzi Vert, Disclosure, 21 Savage, Megan Thee Stallion, DaBaby, FKA twigs, Brockhampton, Big Sean, City Girls, Caribou, Swae Lee, Daniel Caesar, Ari Lennox, Charli XCX, Chicano Batman, Kim Petras, IDLES, Daphni, Koffee, Hot Chip, Carly Rae Jepsen, and many more.

It’s likely that a partially or entirely new lineup will be announced by the time the festival can next take place. Stay tuned for more info.
