Coachella Gets a Tentative 2021 Return Date

Coachella has a tentative new date.

Following the news that the long-running festival will not be happening at all in 2020, promoters confirmed on Thursday (June 11) that Coachella and Stagecoach will be rescheduled for April of 2021 at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio Calif.

“;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,” the announcement reads.

“;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.”;

Sources tell Variety that “Goldenvoice realized that this October would be unfeasible for the festivals many weeks ago, and the delay in the announcement was due to consideration over whether it would return in April 2021 with a diminished audience, or October of next year with a full audience.”

Here are all the events that have been postponed or canceled amid the pandemic.
