Coachella organizers are asking booked artists to play next year's event instead, a sign that this year’s music festival — already postponed to October — will be fully canceled https://t.co/ndLNXPQZgX— Bloomberg Pursuits (@luxury) May 27, 2020
Coachella organizers have begun asking artists scheduled to perform at this year's event to hold off until next year, the biggest sign that the festival is going to be canceled.
Originally scheduled for April, the fest was postponed until October. But the chances of California letting 200,000 people over all the world descend on a little desert town for a weekend is practically unthinkable. The Coachella team needs to firm up plans with artists and square away financial issues before they are able to officially announce their plans. Several acts have already agreed to wait, while others have not.
Live Nation Entertainment has already given up on concerts for the rest of the year and believes they are better off waiting until 2021.
