2020 Coachella, Stagecoach music festivals canceled

County officials have been in contact with Goldenvoice, which operates both festivals, and Kaiser praised the company for its efforts to protect the health of concert-goers.

All 2020 Stagecoach and Coachella passes will be honored in 2021. An email will be sent to current pass holders with instructions to request a refund or to roll over to next year. For additional information, visit www.stagecoachfestival.com/refunds and www.coachella.com.

If COVID-19 were detected at these festivals, the scope and number of attendees and the nature of the venue would make it infeasible, if not impossible, to track those who may be placed at risk, the order stated.

The festivals are music concerts and gatherings of international scope, attracting hundreds of thousands of attendees from many countries, including several disproportionately afflicted by the worldwide coronavirus pandemic. The order is intended to reduce the likelihood of exposure to COVID-19, thereby slowing the spread of the virus in communities worldwide.

“I am concerned as indications grow that COVID-19 could worsen in the fall,” said Kaiser. “In addition, events like Coachella and Stagecoach would fall under Governor Newsom’s Stage 4, which he has previously stated would require treatments or a vaccine to enter. Given the projected circumstances and potential, I would not be comfortable moving forward. “These decisions are not taken lightly with the knowledge that many people will be impacted. My first priority is the health of the community.”

Citing concerns over a possible autumn resurgence of coronavirus, Riverside County Public Health Officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser announced today in a public order that the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and the Stagecoach Festival will be canceled this year. The popular music festivals were scheduled for April, but they were postponed until October after Kaiser issued a similar order.

“I am concerned as indications grow that COVID-19 could worsen in the fall,” said Kaiser. “In addition, events like Coachella and Stagecoach would fall under Governor Newsom’s Stage 4, which he has previously stated would require treatments or a vaccine to enter.
