The famous American music festival Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which has attracted attention as the group BIGBANG’s first return, will be postponed amid coronavirus fear. As for BIGBANG, it is expected that their natural comeback schedule after military service is likely to set back.
On March 9 According to multiple media including US Variety, the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, which was originally scheduled to be held in Indio, California from April 10-19, is in talks to push the dates until October due to COVID-19 concerns. While no official announcement has been made, but foreign media reported that postponing the festival is inevitable due to the local atmosphere.
In the aftermath of COVID-19, which has been spreading beyond Asia, the two major music festivals were canceled or rescheduled.
North America’s largest convergence content festival, SouthBySouthwest (SXSW), scheduled to open on the 13th, was canceled for the first time in 34 years, and the 2020 Ultra Music Festival, scheduled to be held in Miami later this month, was officially canceled due to concerns about the spread of new corona virus .
In the case of BIGBANG, which reorganized into four-membered team after Seungri’s withdrawal in January last year, they chose Coachella as their first returning stage, but the atmosphere surrounding the hosting of Coachella is not so good and its comeback stage also became opaque.
Rage against the Machine, Travis Scott, Frank Ocean Calvin Harris and Lana Del Rey were scheduled to headline Coachella. Epik High along with BIGBANG was set to participate in the festival.
