We knew once Ultra Miami postponed this year’s event due to rising fears of the current coronavirus outbreak, that other festivals would potentially follow suit. Just this evening, after the recent cancelling of SXSW and Winter Music Conference, sources reportedly close to the Coachella Music and Arts festival saying it is to be postponed to the weekends of October 9 and 16. If this turns out to be true, this could have potentially huge impacts on fall festivals like Austin City Limits. See the source below and stay tuned for updates on this potentially massive announcement.
Yashari Ali, a contributor for New York Magazine, has tweeted the following:
Scoop: A source familiar with the arrangements tells me that the Coachella festival will be postponed due to Coronavirus concerns and moved to the weekends of October 9 and 16.
As of now, the same lineup is confirmed to perform.
