Lifestyle information, entertainment news, and humor for Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley.

It seems like forever ago that Coachella postponed to the fall (even though it's only been two weeks), and now we are learning that Lady Gaga had a secret performance planned to promote here new album, which is also not happening, for now anyway.
The last week has felt like a year and so it was nice that the Cathedral City Police Department took a moment to distract us all from the stressful news of the day to reminisce about what appears to have been a hell of a Christmas in 2014 for one particular individual.
Stagecoach has been moved to the fall due to the coronavirus.  The three-day country music fest, which is now scheduled from October 23-25 released an updated lineup for October on Friday.
The McCallum Theatre has officially announced a cancellation of all performances at the Palm Desert from now through April 30, due to the coronavirus.
After news of Coachella postponing until the fall due the coronavirus was released Tuesday, Tesla's CEO Elon Musk decided to take to Twitter to rip on the fest. It didn't go well.
It's become a ritual every April for the last 20 years in the Coachella Valley. Tens of thousands of people flood into the desert to enjoy and work the Coachella and Stagecoach Music festivals along with the parties, events, and everything else associated with what has become the biggest overall music festival and quite arguably the most influential country fest in the world. But in 2020 came the coronavirus and Goldenvoice moved the festival to the fall - which I think we can all agree is sooooooo much better than an outright cancellation. So now, while October is going to be a roaring time in the Greater Palm Springs Area, April is going too be, well, no one really knows at this point.
It has become official: The 2020 Coachella and Stagecoach Music Festivals have been rescheduled for the fall.
With the spread of coronavirus, large events in the desert are being forced to cancel. Reports are that, rather than simply pull the plug, both the Coachella and Stagecoach festivals may be looking to move to the fall in 2020 (update: it's happening). While this would be welcome news to both attendees and local businesses in the Coachella Valley, it would also mean some changes are likely.
So you know that gross feeling you have in your gut. The one that says since the tennis tournament has already been cancelled due to the coronavirus, that Coachella and Stagecoach might not be too far behind? Obviously, the events are cool, but the economic impact to the Greater Palm Springs area are huuuuuuuuge and, well, none of us want to think about an April with a giant festival in Indio for the first time in 20 years. Well, my friend, there is a glimmer of hope.
Citi Taste of Tennis has announced the line-up of chefs for its annual culinary and tennis experience.
