Two major music festivals in the US - Coachella and Stagecoach - have been cancelled due to a possible resurgence of COVID-19 cases.

Cameron Kaiser, Riverside County's public health officer, has signed an order canceling the 2020 editions of the festivals over coronavirus fears.

"I am concerned as indications grow that COVID-19 could worsen in the fall," he added.

Both festivals had initially been rescheduled for October.

Travis Scott, Calvin Harris, and Frank Ocean were set to headline Coachella, while Lil Nas X, Carrie Underwood and Billy Ray Cyrus were set to feature at the Stagecoach.
