City News Service

INDIO (CNS) – COVID-19 diagnoses will keep Scottish-American singer-
songwriter Bishop Briggs and Djordje Petrovic, better known as nomad sounds
producer Satori, from performing during the second weekend of the Coachella
Music & Arts Festival, which begins today.

“I’ve taken multiple tests and they are all positive,” Briggs
tweeted Thursday, one day before she was scheduled to perform. “In order to
keep you guys, my band and crew safe I won’t be able to make my Coachella set
tomorrow. I am beyond bummed and fighting back tears as I write this.”

Briggs tweeted that she is vaccinated and her “symptoms have not been
severe.”

Petrovic also missed last Sunday’s planned performance.

Harry Styles will be Friday’s headliner, with his performance on the
Coachella Stage set to begin at 11:35 p.m.

Performances begin at noon with Crudo on Sonora Stage and Dear Humans
on the Yuma Stage at the Empire Polo Grounds.

Friday’s early performances will come amidst a windblown dust advisory
issued by the South Coast Air Quality Management District for the area
between Whitewater and Desert Center until 3 p.m.
