The coronavirus vaccine isn’t enough to save Coachella and Stagecoach from suffering the same fate two years in a row … the music festivals just got put on ice … again.
The sad news came down Friday from Riverside County Public Health Officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser. He signed an order scrapping the April events, citing COVID as the culprit.
Hundreds of thousands of fans flocked to the festivals each April before the pandemic, and more would have been champing at the bit to go this year after lockdowns and the death of live music … the doc says it’s just not safe to have people coming in from all corners of a world ravaged by virus.
The move’s not too surprising, considering the pandemic is far from under control … and right now it’s anyone’s guess if the festivals can be revived in October. That was the plan last year, but it never panned out.
Hey, at least you don’t have to try and get refunds this time.
