When it rains it pours and its officially pouring on iconic festivals and large events. First it was SXSW then Ultra in Miami decided to cancel. The New York Auto show was postponed and even the Tucson Book Festival which draws over 100,000 people has been cancelled. Pearl Jam decided that the responsible thing to do was to postpone their tour and the latest festival to take precautionary measures and throw in the towel is the world famous Coachella. The festival was supposed to take place on two separate weekends April 10th,11th,12th and the 17th,18th and 19th. I've included the postponement tweet that Coachella put out as well as the statement on the new dates.

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,” Goldenvoice said in its statement. “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.”
