On June 11, Coachella and Stagecoach music festival promoter Goldenvoice announced that the festivals would be postponed until 2021. This announcement came a day after Riverside County public health officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser announced that, because of the risks of the COVID-19 pandemic, the festivals wouldn’t be allowed to take place in at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, until 2021 at the earliest.
Large gatherings in California were halted earlier. In April, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that all concerts and other large gatherings would not be allowed statewide until a COVID-19 vaccine or other effective treatment is available.
All 2020 passes will be honored in 2021. If you have a pass, you’ll be contacted by email by the end of the day Monday, June 15, with information on transferring your tickets or getting a refund.
