Coachella, Stagecoach music festivals postponed to 2022
Coachella fans will have to wait a little longer to return to the popular music festival.
INDIO, Calif. – – The Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals have again been postponed, according to a report released by Variety on Wednesday night.
The organizer Goldenvoice did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Once the move is officially confirmed, it will be the fourth time Coachella’s dates have been moved as part of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Coachella, which hosts two weekends each year in Indio, California, has been postponed first from April to October 2020, then to April 2021, and then from October, although the October dates have not been officially confirmed by the organizers.

According to a previous report by the Coachella Valley Economic Partnership, the Coachella Valley economy lost more than $ 700 million due to the absence of both festivals.
All ticket purchases for the previous dates will be taken into account when the festivals take place, organizers previously said.
Rage Against the Machine, Travis Scott and Frank Ocean were to headline Coachella, while Lil Nas X, Carrie Underwood, Alan Jackson and ZZ Top Stagecoach were to headline.
It remains unclear how this final postponement will affect future lineups.
