The Coachella music festival has been delayed yet again, according to Rolling Stone. After it was originally scheduled to take place in April 2020, the festival was postponed until October due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The festival was once again moved to April 2021, but now that date is no longer being targeted.
According to the latest reports, Coachella will now be pushed back again to October 2021. The targeted date is the first or second week of the month.
Coachella was set to feature Travis Scott, Frank Ocean, Rage Against The Machine, Thom Yorke, Lana Del Rey, Calvin Harris, Run The Jewels, Megan Thee Stallion, Disclosure, Brockhampton, Charli XCX, Lil Uzi Vert, FKA Twigs, Lil Nas X, Carly Rae Jepsen, and others.
Coachella attracts approximately 125,000 festival-goers per day, over six total days on two consecutive weekends.
The coronavirus mainly comes from animals and a majority of those who were infected early either worked at or frequently visited the Huanan seafood wholesale market in Wuhan, according to The Guardian. The virus is similar to Severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars) and Middle Eastern respiratory syndrome (Mers).
The Wuhan coronavirus is transmitted from person to person through “droplet transmission.” That means an infected person can pass the virus by sneezing or coughing on another person as well as by direct contact.
While a majority of the cases have been detected in the United States and China — with more than 7.53 million confirmed cases and 211,000 deaths in the United States — it has now reached many countries around the world. It has also been confirmed in Italy, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, and many other eastern countries.
