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.
