The coronavirus, also referred to as COVID-19, has been connected to the deaths of more than 3,500 people, the World Health Organization said Sunday.
It’s had a massive impact in the music world Cardi works in, as April’s Coachella music festival (which she played in 2018) has been pushed this week to October amid prevention efforts. In addition, the country festival Stagecoach was also pushed toward the fall months.
‘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,’ Goldenvoice, which promotes both festivals, said in a statement. ‘While this decision comes at a time of universal uncertainty, we take the safety and health of our guests, staff and community very seriously.
‘We urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials.’
