As if Coachella and Stagecoach being cancelled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic wasn't bad enough, both festivals have announced they will be postponing their weekends of music once again.

The decision to move both festivals for a third time came after months of speculation on whether they would just be postponed to October, or moved to next year.

Festival founder and president of Goldenvoice told Billboard, "We look forward to being in the desert next April with all of our friends."

When festival organizers Goldenvoice initially postponed Coachella and its country counterpart Stagecoach in March last year with hopes of holding them with a few months' delay. However, the rescheduled dates were canceled in June 2020 due to the ongoing pandemic.

The hope for both festivals to return in April was crushed in January this year when organizers decided to cancel both events altogether.

Coachella will take place April 15-17 and 22-24, 2022. Stagecoach will be on the following weekend, April 29-May 1.

Though the lineups for Coachella and Stagecoach have yet to be announced, tickets for each will go on sale Friday.
