Why has Coachella 2020 been cancelled and can I get a refund on tickets?

SAD news for all those with tickets for Coachella – it looks like the festival is going to be pushed back due to the ongoing Coronavirus epidemic.

The annual event was meant to kick off on April 10 but now organisers are reportedly set to move the dates to October.

Why has Coachella 2020 been cancelled?

The 20-year-old music festival's fate has been hanging in the balance in recent days after local health officials in Riverside County, California, confirmed the first case of the killer virus on March 8.

And on Monday, sources said Coachella would be pushed back from April 10-19 until the weekends of October 9 and 16, according to a New York Magazine reporter – who claimed the lineup was so far unaffected.

Other reports said the mega-festival's promoter Goldenvoice was in talks regarding the postponement – and agreement was being sought within the next 48 hours, otherwise the event could be cancelled entirely, Billboard said.

The Sun has contacted Coachella for comment.

Can I get a refund on my Coachella 2020 tickets?

The festival dates haven't officially been changed just yet so there aren't any special refund plans for those with tickets.

Typically, the sale of Coachella passes are final – in an ordinary scenario refunds, cancellations and exchanges aren't allowed.

Fans who can't attend the event after purchasing their tickets can resell on an official fan-to-fan exchange site.

Organizers will be sure to announce any refund or resale process should the festival be postponed.
