BUZZ Fam, I know many of us were looking forward to Koffee’s debut performance at Coachella in April. But it looks like we’re going to have to wait a little longer.

Coachella has been postponed till October because of the coronavirus outbreak.

Sources have told Variety and Billboard that agents are looking to re-book artists for Coachella, held in Indio, south-east California, to begin on 9 October.

There has been growing calls for Coachella, one of music’s most anticipated event to be shut down. In fact, an online petition which called for the festival’s cancellation has received more than 16,000 signatures.

“As a highly inclusive community, we are responsible to protect each and every community member, which include the ones who are elderly, fragile, or the ones who suffer from chronic diseases, cancer, immune system diseases and other forms of disabilities,” wrote Stella Young, who started the petition. 

Three new cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in the Coachella Valley region on Monday.

The cases were confirmed by the Riverside County Department of Public Health.
