At the direction of the County of Riverside and local health authorities, we must sadly confirm the rescheduling of Coachella and Stagecoach due to COVID-19 concerns. While this decision comes at a time of universal uncertainty, we take the safety and health of our guests, staff and community very seriously. We urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials.
Coachella will now take place on October 9, 10 and 11 and October 16, 17 and 18, 2020. Stagecoach will take place on October 23, 24 and 25, 2020. All purchases for the April dates will be honored for the rescheduled October dates. Purchasers will be notified by Friday, March 13 on how to obtain a refund if they are unable to attend.
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you in the desert this fall.
From the City of Indio:
Festivals Rescheduled for October
City issues statement on postponement of music festivals
Riverside County Public Health Officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser today announced that due to concerns about COVID-19, he ordered the cancellation of the two music festivals scheduled for April in Indio.
“On behalf of the City Council, I want to thank our public for the statements of concern we have all been receiving,” said Mayor Glenn Miller.
“The City of Indio is known as the City of Festivals, and the Coachella and Stagecoach events held annually introduce visitors to the Coachella Valley to the natural beauty, amenities and offerings that make this region such a desirable place to call home,” Miller added. “However, the potential health risks of holding a gathering of a large size must be considered, with the safety of our community being top of mind.”
In their efforts to evaluate options for continuing with the concerts, producer Goldenvoice approached the City of Indio about postponing the festivals for a date in the fall of 2020, and a decision was made to reschedule the festivals for October.
As the national and regional and local picture involving COVID-19 becomes clearer, the City will continue to follow the protocols, guidance and recommendations involving public facilities. Currently, City buildings and services all remain open to conduct public business. Additional information will be updated on the City’s website as it becomes available.
