Coachella, Stagecoach music festivals postponed again until 2022, report says
INDIO, Calif. - Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals have been postponed again, according to a report published Wednesday night by Variety.
Event promoter Goldenvoice did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The move, once officially confirmed, would be the fourth time the dates of Coachella have been rescheduled amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Coachella, which runs two weekends each year in Indio, California, was first rescheduled from April to October 2020, then to April 2021, and then October, although the October dates were not officially confirmed by promoters.

The Coachella Valley's economy lost upward of $700 million due to the absence of both festivals, according to a previous report from the Coachella Valley Economic Partnership.
All ticket purchases for the previous dates will be honored whenever the festivals are held, organizers said previously.
Rage Against the Machine, Travis Scott and Frank Ocean were set to headline Coachella, while Lil Nas X, Carrie Underwood, Alan Jackson and ZZ Top were scheduled to headline Stagecoach.
It remains unclear how this latest postponement will affect future lineups.
