Stagecoach Festival and Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will no longer solely require proof of vaccination for entry into their 2022 events, it was announced yesterday (Oct. 12).
On Aug. 12, the festivals had decided to allow patrons who had received a full vaccination to attend the events. However, as COVID-19 case numbers begin to decline through the United States, the festival organizers will now also allow ticketholders to the 2022 events to attend with proof of a negative COVID-19 test obtained within 72 hours of event entry.
“After seeing first-hand the low transmission data and successful implementation of safety protocols at our other festivals this past month, we feel confident that we can update our own health policy to allow for [either a] negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the event or proof of full vaccination,” festival organizers shared on social media.
Stagecoach 2022 is scheduled for April 29 – May 1 with headliners Thomas Rhett, Carrie Underwood, and Luke Combs. Other performers slated for the three-day festival include Maren Morris, Midland, Brandi Carlile, Jordan Davis, Tanya Tucker, Brothers Osborne, Lee Brice, Mitchell Tenpenny, Cody Jinks, Ryan Hurd, Ingrid Andress, Breland, Hardy, Cody Johnson, Yola, and more.
Coachella will take palace over two consecutive weekends–April 15 – 17 and April 22 – 24–with two separate lineups of performers.
Both festivals are held at Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, and organized by Goldenvoice, which operates under the AEG umbrella.
