The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has been officially postponed. 

The festival, which was set to run over two weekends in April has been postponed until October due to concerns about the Coronavirus. 

The news was announced by the organizers on Tuesday. 

“At the direction of the County of Riverside and local health authorities, we must sadly confirm the rescheduling of Coachella and Stagecoach due to COVID-19 concerns,” Goldenvoice said in a statement. “While this decision comes at a time of universal uncertainty, we take the safety and health of our guests, staff and community very seriously. We urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials.”

The California-based event is one of the largest annual music festivals in the US.
