After 2 of the US’ biggest festivals cancelled any 2020 plans they’re offering customers a ticket to next year or limited time refunds.
Last week festival organisers announced the plans for Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals. The two large US festivals had been on hold with hopes to postpone from their original dates to later this year but they’ve officially stated that both festivals will return next year instead.
They are offering would-be attendees a full refund for their tickets for 30 days from the receiving of an email they should have sent out by now. However, if ticket-holders don’t respond within 30 days from receiving their email they will be automatically have their passes transferred to the 2021 events.
Coachella has been booked next or April 9th to 11th and then April 16th to the 18th for the two-weekend festival. Stagecoach will return next year on April 23rd until April 25th.
It seems that many ticket-holders are going to request a full refund but it raises the question of what will happen to those who don’t see the email within 30 days of receiving it. This is of course hoping that next April we are in a position where we can safely and confidently put on events with large gatherings again as well.
