Coachella 2021 was initially slated for the weekends of 9 - 11 April and 16 - 18 April, and was intended to be a grand comeback following a pandemic-stricken year.
In March 2020, Coachella announced its postponement from April to October 2020, before fully cancelling the festival for that year due to COVID-19 concerns. It was the first time in 20 years the yearly highly-anticipated music festival did not take place.
