Coachella Valley’s ‘Desert X’ Indefinitely Postponed

#breakingnews

The Desert X Board in consultation with its team and members of the Coachella Valley community has decided that, In light of the urgent health crisis and surge in cases of COVID-19, the only responsible way forward to protect our community, health care system, artists, visitors and all those who volunteer and contribute to the exhibition, is to wait until we are out of the lockdown period before opening to the public.

The artists’ projects are ready, and the Desert X team and board will identify a new opening date as soon as we believe we can safely do so. #desertx2021
