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 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.

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.
