Further reports suggest Goldenvoice is developing a new strategy to re-schedule for consecutive weekends in early October — eyeing an Oct. 9 start.

For several years Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, has repeated the same lineup over two weekends place April 10-12 and again April 17-19.

The scheduled nightly headliners were:

Rage Against the Machine

Travis Scott

Frank Ocean

Stagecoach, one of the nation’s biggest annual country music festivals

was dated to follow on the same location in Indio April 24-26, with…

Carrie Underwood

Eric Church

Thomas Rhett

2016’s Desert Trip festival, otherwise known as Oldchella, a hugely profitable successful music gathering that was held in the fall — from October 7 to 9 and 14 to 16 — at the same site as Coachella and Stagecoach: Indio’s Empire Polo Club (polo is only played at that location from January to March).

Desert Trip featured:

Rolling Stones

Bob Dylan

Paul McCartney

Neil Young

Roger Waters

and The Who

on the bill and grossed more than $160 million.

The Coachella Valley and the city of Indio have the accommodations to receive tens of thousands of attendees. So far local government hasn’t forced a cancelation of Coachella or Stagecoach due to coronavirus, while five cases reported in Riverside County push it closer to a fait accompli.

By moving the festivals as opposed to canceling them, Goldenvoice — and parent company AEG — could shield itself from having to trigger cancelation insurance that may or may not cover communicable diseases.

  3. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
