Due to the current COVID-19 global pandemic, Goldenvoice has announced Coachella 2020 has been officially cancelled and will return for its 2021 festival on April 9-11 and 16-18.
The festival originally scheduled to take place back in April was rescheduled to October 9-11 and 16-18, but county health officials raised concerns of the virus worsening in the fall. California Governor Gavin Newsom backing the decision stating that music festivals would not be permitted to reopen until an effective treatment for the virus is widely available.
All 2020 passes will be honored in 2021. Pass holders can expect to receive an email by Monday with instructions on how to receive a refund or to received new tickets.
“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 23 – 25, 2021. We look forward to sharing our new lineups and more information. We can’t wait to be together in the desert again when it is safe.
All 2020 passes will be honored in 2021. Current pass holders will be sent an email by the end of the day on Monday, June 15 with further instructions to request a refund or to roll over to next year.”
The original lineup was set to feature the return of Rage Against The Machine, Travis Scott, and Frank Ocean as its 2020 headliners. It is currently unclear how many acts will remain on the 2021 lineup.
