Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival

2020 ‘Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival’ Officially Cancelled, 2021 Dates Revealed


Previously delayed from its traditional April run to this October amid COVID-19 concerns, this year’s ‘Coachella Valley Music & Art Festival‘ has now officially been cancelled.  The festival is next set to take place in April of 2021 with an apparent new lineup in place. A statement issued by the festival’s organizers Goldenvoice earlier today, June 11th, reads:

“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.”

Among the artists booked for the 2020 editions of the festival were Rage Against The Machine, Travis Scott and Frank Ocean. Heavier artists on the bill included Code Orange, King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard and The Hu.
