The Press Release:
At the direction of the County of Riverside and local health authorities, we must sadly confirm the rescheduling of Coachella and Stagecoach due to COVID-19 concerns.

We urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials.
Coachella will now take place on October 9, 10 and 11 and October 16, 17 and 18, 2020. Stagecoach will take place on October 23, 24 and 25, 2020. All purchases for the April dates will be honored for the rescheduled October dates. Purchasers will be notified by Friday, March 13 on how to obtain a refund if they are unable to attend.
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you in the desert this fall.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: Historically speaking, we’ve never attended any of the Coachella festivals and its mostly because we’ve a full plate of music that we really like going on over here on the East Coast. That being said, we still announced this stuff on “The Chronicles” based on the broader brush and wider audience demographic of readers. This is just the latest in a long line of already cancelled conventions and tours that I’ve discussed here and on my PiercingMetal website and I think many more are to come. Stay tuned and stay healthy. I attended a convention today and I don’t think that I shook a single hand once. Everyone I engaged with got a peace sign, a thumb’s up and yeah even a Spock “Live Long and Prosper”. See you next time.
