As fears over the coronavirus continue to shake the world, one of the music industry’s hugest festivals has decided to postpone its April schedule.
Coachella has indeed confirmed that its 2020 festival will be postponed until the weekends of 9th October and 16th October while Stagecoach Music Festival will be moved to the weekend of 23rd October.
Coachella Postponed Along With Many Other Festivals
The announcement of Coachella’s postponement follows the closing of many other festivals, concerts and live performances all over the world due to growing fears about the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
This news also comes just hours after Coachella Valley reported three new cases of the coronavirus, with Riverside County now having six confirmed cases in total.

Full Refunds Available
Coachella says that it will allow for full refunds for attendees who can’t make the rescheduled dates in October.
It’s sounds like the same lineup is scheduled for the postponed dates as the festival typically employs a six-month radius clause for performing artists following its April dates, so we can expect the current line-up to remain more-or-less unchanged.
The UAE has also had to postpone and cancel a number of events due to coronavirus fears – you can read about it here.
