As of now, the festival is currently taking place the weekends of April 10 and April 19.

Large festivals including SXSW and Ultra Music Festival have already canceled on top of numerous artists bowing out of tour dates.

Riverside County has also declared a public health emergency which could lead to the local government enforcing a cancelation.

Globally, there are over 100,000 cases of coronavirus with more countries confirming as time goes on.
