As the GLOBAL pandemic still grips the world, life as we used to know it is still on hold.
In light of COVID-19, Coachella 2021 has been canceled!
This is the 2nd year that the music festival has been halted.
As reported by NPR, Coachella 2020 was originally slated for April with Frank Ocean, Travis Scott and Rage Against the Machine scheduled as headliners. After the pandemic led to lockdowns in the U.S. last March, Coachella was postponed to October 2020. The event was later scrapped altogether.
Status of the ticket holders for the now cancelled 2021 festival is uncertain and a new date has not been determined at this time.
The COVID-19 pandemic shook the live music industry to its knees in 2020. Coachella was just one of several festivals and extensive artist tours that were canceled that year. Vulture reports that coronavirus caused the cancellation of Made In America Festival, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and the Essence Festival, just to name a few.
