After initially postponing Coachella until October, it appears the production company behind the two-weekend music festival is pulling the plug on the music festival for 2020.
According to Billboard, Goldenvoice is now looking ahead to April 2021 for Coachella plans. Even that may be wishful thinking, at this point.

Billboard reports that Goldenvoice and Coachella organizers are “still trying to determine whether the two-weekend, 125,000-person-per-day festival will make a limited-capacity return in April 2021 or a larger, higher capacity comeback in October 2021. About 40 per cent of ticket buyers have requested refunds for this year’s festival and AEG [Goldenvoice’s parent company] think they could probably pull off the festival in April at 60 per cent capacity, but are holding off on making a final rescheduling decision until there is more clarity on the pandemic’s overall trajectory.”
Coachella was postponed earlier this year from its April 10 – 12 and April 17 – 19 dates until October due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
