Coachella 2021 has reportedly been cancelled due to coronavirus.
The festival, which takes place in California, has had to be scrapped again this year after Riverside County Public Health Officer Dr Cameron Kaiser signed an order, calling for all April events to be cancelled.
A tweet from Dr Kaiser’s account reads: ‘Due to the pandemic, Public Health Officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser today (Jan. 29) signed a public health order canceling Coachella Valley Music and Arts, Stagecoach Country Music festivals planned for April 2021.
‘We look forward to when the events may return.’
Coachella has not yet formally announced a cancellation.
The highly-anticipated event was due to run from April 9 to April 18 this year.
Other artists slated to play Coachella include Lana Del Rey, Thom Yorke, BIGBANG, Megan Thee Stallion and 21 Savage, as well as UK acts including Calvin Harris, Lewis Capaldi, FKA twigs and Charli XCX.
Last year’s event was originally postponed from April to October due to the pandemic.
However, in June 2020, officials took the decision to cancel it completely.
Earlier this month, it was also revealed that Glastonbury 2021 would be cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic.
Michael and Emily Eavis confirmed that the 2021 festival will not go ahead, saying they would be having another ‘enforced fallow year’.
The iconic festival, which attracts around 200,000 revellers each year, was set to begin on June 27.
