The organizers of the Coachella music festival are asking artists lined up for the annual event to play in 2021 instead, according to people familiar with the matter, the clearest sign yet that this year’s show will be canceled.

Rage Against the Machine, Travis Scott and Frank Ocean are set to headline the festival, which takes place every year on polo fields in Indio, California, a desert town a few hours outside of Los Angeles. Coachella is the largest music festival in the U.S., generating as much as $100 million in sales for promoter Goldenvoice and its parent AEG.
