Visa Issues at Coachella Music Festival

Visa Issues with Performing Artists

At the recent Coachella music festival which was held these past two consecutive weekends (4/15-17, 4/22-24), two artists who were scheduled to perform had to cancel and reschedule their performances due to visa issues.

The UK artist Skepta’s U.S. visa was denied which forced him to cancel his Coachella performance as well as other scheduled tour dates in the U.S. Luckily for Lush, they resolved their visa issues and were able to perform for week two at Coachella and carry on their other scheduled tour performances.

Besides this recent news regarding the two Coachella artists, there have been similar cases with performers getting their visas denied just before their scheduled tour dates.
