Coachella's Delay Is A Warning To Festivals


Coachella is being pushed back for the third time.

It's expected that other big music festivals, such as Governor's Ball and Austin City Limits, will be pushed to a similar time next fall as well. Things could get bumpy 12 months ahead for artists looking to get back to performing, deciding which festivals make the most sense for their schedules.

Even Mark Scott, the city manager of Indio, California, says that his team is putting together a "budget option" for a new date announcement. "We know Goldenvoice is driven by a desire to deliver quality experience, so safety is a huge part of what they do," he said. "It would not surprise me if they had to defer again."
