Due to ongoing COVID-19 health concerns, Coachella reportedly cancels the 2020 festival. While the Southern California desert festival was one of the first to postpone dates from April to October when the pandemic first hit, it’s now being reported that the festival is postponing until 2021. Parent company AEG on Monday “laid off 15 percent of its workforce, furloughed over 100 people, and instituted 20 to 50 percent pay cuts, per an internal note obtained by Billboard“. It’s unclear when the festival will reschedule in 2021, but reports of diminished capacity of April aren’t off the table.
