(INDIO, CA) – The Coachella and Stagecoach festivals, two of Southern California’s largest music celebrations, have again been canceled under an order issued Friday by the Riverside County health officer.
Public Health Officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser said the decision was “based on concerns of a fall resurgence of Covid-19 both within the county of Riverside and worldwide.”
The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and the Stagecoach Festival were scheduled for April, 2021. Last year, they were postponed from April, 2020 until October, 2020 but were eventually canceled because of county disallowing the events.
According to Friday’s order, both music festivals attract “hundreds of thousands of attendees from many countries,” which could increase the risk of spread of the coronavirus.
“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,” Dr. Kaiser said.
