Coachella announced a preliminary date for 2023. The annual music extravaganza, as well as the country festival Stagecoach, should take place in Indio, California in April.

Because of the corona pandemic, the festival was only postponed until October, but this week local officials confirmed that the two events are now being completely canceled for fear of a second wave of the virus. However, those responsible have now announced a new series of dates for next year in a statement.

Coachella will take place from April 9 to 11, 2023, the second weekend is scheduled for April 16 to 18, 2023. Stagecoach is meanwhile scheduled for April 23-25, 2023. All 2023 festival passes can either be refunded or carried over to the next year.

“I am anxious”

Dr. Cameron Kaiser, health officer in Riverside County, said of the festival cancellation: “I am concerned with the growing signs that COVID-19 could deteriorate in the fall. Events such as Coachella and Stagecoach would also fall under Governor Newsom’s level 4, which, as he explained, would require treatment or a vaccine. ”

Because of this prospect, it is a big risk to have a festival, and the politician would rather not take on this responsibility. “These decisions are not taken lightly, knowing that many people will be affected. My first priority is community health. ”
