Possibly the largest music and arts festival in the world has now been affected by the coronavirus outbreak. Coachella was scheduled to take over the California desert next month, but has now been rescheduled for later this year.
The event organizers postponed the festival until the weekends October 9, 10, and 11th and October 16, 17, and 18th. The festival, which usually brings in loads of celebrity attendees, as well as hundreds of artists to perform, hopes that their crowds and acts will both return in October.
This year the festival promised Rage Against The Machine, Frank Ocean, Lana Del Rey, Travis Scott, and Calvin Harris, and many more to take the stage.
Coachella released the following press release on Twitter yesterday to share the news with festival goers.
The festival also shared that unlike Ultra Music Festival set for Miami, ticket holders for Coachella will be able to obtain a refund if they are unable to attend the rescheduled dates.
However, Airbnb refunds are providing a whole other challenge for those planning on venturing to the desert according to TMZ. So if you were planning on attending, you may want to get on the phone now.
Coachella ticket holders should be contacted by Friday, March 13th with more information on how to request a refund.
