Coachella could be canceling its 2020 festival thanks to ongoing concerns around the coronavirus pandemic.
Per Billboard, festival promoter/organizer Goldenvoice “still trying to determine whether the two-weekend, 125,000-person-per-day festival will make a limited-capacity return in April 2021 or a larger, higher capacity comeback in October 2021.”
Billboard also notes, “About 40% of ticket buyers have requested refunds for this year’s festival and AEG officials think they could probably pull off the festival in April at 60% capacity, but are holding off on making a final rescheduling decision until there is more clarity on the pandemic’s overall trajectory.”
Coachella pushed its two-weekend festival from April to October. Rage Against the Machine, Travis Scott and Frank Ocean were set to headline.
So far, Coachella has yet to release a statement regarding the future of its 2020 festival.
