It was only a matter of time before upcoming festivals had to address the COVID-19 outbreak. Ultra Miami was the first to call things off, then came SXSW cancelations and Winter Music Conference. As the infections rise and uncertainty hangs in the air, it is now looking likely that Coachella has been postponed until October.
According to New York Magazine contributor, Yashar Ali, there is a high likelihood that the Palm Springs festival is cancelling 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.
