The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival scheduled for April 9-11, and 16-18, 2021, has been canceled due to the pandemic, Dr. Cameron Kaiser, the public health officer for Riverside County announced on Twitter.

Dr. Kaiser added, “this order is intended to reduce the likelihood of exposure to COVID-19. If COVID-19 were detected at these festivals, the scope and number of attendees and the nature of the venue would make it infeasible, if not impossible, to track those who may be placed at risk.”

This is the third time the two-weekend festival has been delayed over coronavirus concerns. In March 2020, the festival’s April dates with headliners Travis Scott, Frank Ocean, and Rage Against the Machine were postponed to October. But then, in June, the October dates were canceled as well, as reported in Billboard.

2020 marked the first time in 20 years that the event was canceled. New dates for the festival have not yet been determined.
