An October 2021 comeback is officially off the table. "We look forward to being in the desert next April with all of our friends," says Goldenvoice president Paul Tollett.
Coachella and Stagecoach will return in April 2022 after a two-year pandemic pause, officially ending speculation that North America's largest multi-genre music festival and its largest country music festival would attempt an October comeback.
"We look forward to being in the desert next April with all of our friends," festival founder and Goldenvoice president and chief executive Paul Tollett told Billboard in a statement.
Today, festival organizers Goldenvoice announced that both Coachella and Stagecoach are returning next spring, with the first weekend of Coachella scheduled April 15-17, the second weekend scheduled for April 22-24, and Stagecoach scheduled to take place April 29-May 1.
