Country music festival Stagecoach has officially been canceled for 2020 due to coronavirus concerns, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Dr. Cameron Kaiser, Riverside County’s public health officer, signed an order Wednesday (June 10) canceling this year’s Coachella and Stagecoach festivals, which are held each year outside Palm Springs, California. Previously, Coachella and Stagecoach organizers announced the two festivals would be postponed until October.
“I am concerned as indications grow that COVID-19 could worsen in the fall,” Kaiser said, according to the Los Angeles Times. “In addition, events like Coachella and Stagecoach would fall under Governor Newsom’s Stage 4, which he has previously stated would require treatments or a vaccine to enter. Given the projected circumstances and potential, I would not be comfortable moving forward.”
Stagecoach was set to be headlined by Eric Church, Thomas Rhett, and Carrie Underwood, while Rage Against The Machine, Travis Scott and Frank Ocean were set to headline Coachella.
