Elon Musk, Founder and Chief Engineer of SpaceX, speaks during the Satellite 2020 Conference in Washington, DC, United States on March 9, 2020.

Goldenvoice officially announced on Tuesday (March 10) that due to coronavirus concerns, the 2020 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will be rescheduled to October.

Disappointed fans found relief in the fact that they will get to see their favorite artists in Indio in the fall, but one person who wasn't thrilled was Elon Musk.

The tech mogul took to Twitter to unleash his scathing two cents: "Coachella should postpone itself until it stops sucking," he wrote, before adding, "Too much corporate sponsorship killed the vibe."

"Was good maybe 5 or 6 years ago when you could wonder around & find great unknown bands," he concluded.

Coachella's official Twitter account saw Musk's opinion, and replied a simple "lol" alongside a photo of Jaden Smith at the festival, performing atop a Tesla Model X hovered above the crowd.

The Tesla CEO happily surrendered to the burn, admitting, "Ok fine, that was good haha." See the exchange below.
