Coachella Festival to be Rescheduled Due to Coronavirus Outbreak

The annual music and arts festival, which will feature Rage Against the Machine, Frank Ocean and Travis Scott among others this year, is initially set to be held over two weekends in April.

AceShowbiz -The organisers of the Coachella festival in California are in talks to move the event to October amid ongoing concerns about the spread of coronavirus.

The annual music and arts festival was due to take place over two weekends in April, but increased fears about the health of fans have prompted promoters at Golden Voice to consider rescheduling the six-day event, set to feature headliners Rage Against the Machine, Frank Ocean, and Travis Scott (II).

A decision is expected before the end of the week.

The promoters are also reportedly working to move the Stagecoach country music festival, held at the same location as Coachella, to October.

The festival organisers might be forced to pull the plug on Coachella and Stagecoach as Riverside County officials in California battle to contain COVID-19 after three cases of the virus were confirmed on Monday, March 09.
