Organisers of Coachella are reportedly asking artists due to play this year's event to play in 2021 instead.

Coachella is one of the very few festivals that hasn't completely called off its 2020 event due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The double-weekender festival was due to take place in April, but following the outbreak of COVID-19 in March, organisers decided to reschedule the event until October, with hopes that the pandemic and social distancing would be long gone.

Travis Scott, Frank Ocean and Rage Against the Machine are due to headline the 2020 event, but Bloomberg reports that organisers are apparently asking artists due to play this year's festival if they can play in 2021 instead, hinting that Coachella could about to be cancelled for this year.

Bloomberg also notes that the festival organisers Goldenvoice didn't respond to a request for comment about the possibility of this year's event being cancelled.

At the moment, Coachella 2020 is still going ahead from 9-11 and 16-18 October. All original tickets purchased for the April dates will be valid for the rescheduled dates in October.
