The Coachella and Stagecoach festivals have been canceled due to concerns about the spread of the coronavirus

“I am concerned because indications are rising that COVID-19 could worsen in the fall,” Dr. Cameron Kaiser, Riverside County Public Health Officer, said in a statement announcing the festival’s cancellation. “Given the projected circumstances and potential, I wouldn’t be comfortable moving forward.”

The festival area is allowed under Phase 4 of the California government’s Gavin News restoration plan and will require treatments or vaccines to allow entry, Kaiser said.

Health officials said they were in touch with Goldenvoice, the festival’s promoter, regarding the issue.

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and the Stagecoach Country Music Festival were originally scheduled to take place in April, but were postponed until October under the direction of Riverside County Health Officers.

Hundreds of thousands of people are held at the festivals, and it was expected that big names of performers would perform in them.

Rage against the machine, Travis Scott and Frank Ocean the title is Coachella, along with performances by Calvin Harris, Big Sean, Lewis Capaldi, Charlie XCX, Flume, 21 Savage, Lana Del Rey and Lil Nas X.

Thomas Rhett, Carrie Underwood and Eric Church are set as Stagecoach.

“These decisions are not taken lightly with the knowledge that many people will be affected,” Kaiser said. “My first priority is community health.”
