Coachella podría posponerse para octubre

En esta edición artistas como Rage Against The Machine, Thom Yorke, Travis Scott, Frank Ocean, Run The Jewels y Lana del Rey encabezan el cartel.

Debido al panorama actual en varios países alrededor del mundo por el Coronavirus, se han tenido que cancelar muchos eventos importantes, conciertos, reuniones e incluso las Olimpiadas que se realizarán en Japón se encuentran en la cuerda floja.

El día de ayer se anunció que el festival Coachella, planeado para llevarse a cabo en California en los fines de semana del 10 al 17 de abril, podría ser pospuesto hasta el mes de octubre, ocupando los días 9 al 16, pues ya son 114 casos de Covid-19 confirmados en Estados Unidos, con al menos 320 casos detectados.

Una de las precauciones mayores para evitar la propagación y contagio del virus, es que se evite asistir a lugares con grandes afluencias de personas; se espera que este año acudan al Coachella cerca de 200 mil personas.

En caso de que la situación en Estados Unidos se agrave y aumente el número de casos y enfermos, al Coachella podría tocarle una cancelación definitiva al menos en lo que va del año.

Otro de los grupos que ha sucumbido por seguridad, es Pearl Jam, quienes desde su cuenta de Instagram anunciaron un retraso de su tour por Norteamérica. Puedes ver el mensaje a continuación:

As residents of the city of Seattle, we’ve been hit hard and have witnessed firsthand how quickly these disastrous situations can escalate. Our kids’ schools have closed along with universities and businesses. It’s been brutal and it’s gonna get worse before it gets better. So we are being told that being part of large gatherings is high on the list of things to avoid as this global health crisis is now beginning to affect all of our lives. Unfortunately, communing in large groups is a huge part of what we do as a band and the tour we’ve been busy planning for months is now in jeopardy… We have and will always keep the safety and well-being of our supporters as top priority. So it is with deep frustration and regret that we are forced to make this most unfortunate of announcements… This scheduled first leg of our PJ/Gigaton tour will need to be postponed and shows rescheduled for a later date. We’ve worked hard with all our management and business associates to find other solutions or options but the levels of risk to our audience and their communities is simply too high for our comfort level. Add to that we also have a unique group of passionate fans who travel far and wide. We’ve always been humbled by this and respect their energies and devotion. However in this case, travel is something to avoid. It certainly hasn’t helped that there’s been no clear messages from our government regarding people’s safety and our ability to go to work. Having no examples of our national health department’s ability to get ahead of this, we have no reason to believe that it will be under control in the coming weeks ahead. Again, here in Seattle what we are witnessing we would not wish for anyone. What we do wish for the rest of the country is that they can avoid the harsh negative effects of this and retain their sense of community and take care of one another. Just as we look forward to our next concerts and the ability to gather together and play loud songs as energized as ever. We are so sorry… And deeply upset.. If anyone out there feels the same based on this news, we share that emotion with you. – Ed & Pearl Jam
