On the official Twitter account, it’s been announced that the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has been postponed till October 2020. The two-weekend music festival is known to attract crowds from all over the world. However, due to the outbreak of Coronavirus, Goldenvoice has stated that the festival is pushed forward. The festival is now expected to be held on the new dates, which are; October 9-11 and October 16-18.

Now, before you jump up and claim a refund, hear us out. Your expensive tickets will not go to waste. Instead, you can use them on the rescheduled dates.

Rage Against the Machine, Travis Scott, Frank Ocean, and many more celebrities were going to headline the festival. If the Los Angeles Times is to be believed, 250,000 party-goers expected to turn up for the event this year.

Coachella is not the only event that has been cancelled recently. Due to the epidemic, Ireland cancelled all Saint Patrick’s Day parades, and on Tuesday night, Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden cancelled their rallies in Cleveland.

The COVID-19 concerns are getting worse, and it has now become more critical than ever to control the damage.
