The event, which is billed as “the world’s largest hip-hop festival”, has become a key festival fixture in the US since debuting in 2015, with past editions being held in LA, Oakland and New York City.

This year’s flagship Rolling Loud Festival was due to take place in Miami in May but it was also postponed.

It is set to return in 2021 though between February 12-14.

But those dates were also cancelled and Coachella will now take place with a “new line-up” on April 9–11 and 16–18, 2021. All 2020 tickets will be honoured for the 2021 festival.
