Coachella goes autumnal

 

 

 

Coachella goes autumnal. The American music festival has been postponed, for now, until October. The event that originally was taking place from April 10th to the 12th, and from the 17th  to the 19th of the same month, will now be held, if everything goes as planned, from October 9th to the 11th and from 16th to 18th of the same month.

 

The artists heading this edition of Coachella were Frank Ocean, Travis Scott, Rage Against the Machine and Lana del Rey, among others. Their availability to perform at the festival with these new dates is still pending of confirmation.

 

“Under the direction of local health authorities, we must sadly confirm the rescheduling of Coachella due to the concern caused by Covid-19”, the organization explained on a statement published on its social networks.

 

 

 

 

Coachella held its first edition in 1999 and since then it has been held every April in the city of Indio, California, welcoming around 200,000 attendees. The festival has held performances of artists like Amy Winehouse, Prince, The Killers or Beyoncé in the past editions.

 

The organization also confirmed that Stagecoach, the country music festival and Coachella’s ‘brother’, which is also held in the Californian city of Indio, has also been postponed. In the edition of this festival, which was to be held from April 24th to 26th, artists such as Billy Ray Cyrus, Carrie Underwood and Alan Jackson were confirmed.

 

With the expansion of the coronavirus and with the more than a thousand infected in the United States, this week other festivals in the country have also been canceled, such as SXSW in Austin, Texas, and the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Florida.
