After similar cancellations of large scale events, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has reportedly been postponed to October.
New York Magazine/Huffington Post contributor Yashar Ali reported moments ago that the festival will be „moved to the weekends of October 9 and 16.“ Ali added that as of now, the same lineup is confirmed to perform.
This year’s festival was to be headlined by Rage Against the Machine. It is unclear what happens to the band’s remaining tour dates.

Earlier today, six cases of coronavirus were confirmed for the local county, Riverside County. Local officials told Rolling Stone “The Riverside County Public Health Department has declared a public health emergency for the Coachella Valley after a confirmed case of coronavirus (COVID-19) locally. As a result, the 2020 BNP Paribas Open will not take place at this time due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus and the safety of the participants and attendees at the event. This is following the guidance of medical professionals, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and State of California.”
