Fans are no longer required to be vaccinated for Covid-19 to attend the Coachella and Stagecoach festivals in 2022.

Festival organizers have decided to allow unvaccinated fans to attend next year’s Coachella and Stagecoach festivals if they can show negative COVID-19 test taken 72 hours prior to the event.

“After seeing first-hand the low transmission data and successful implementation of safety protocols at our festivals recently, alongside the rising vaccination rate of eligible Americans, we feel confident that we can safely update our policy for Coachella that allows for negative covid test taken within 72 hours of the event OR proof of full vaccination,” the organizers announced in a statement.

In August, AEG Presents had announced that starting October 1, fans attending events produced by the company would need to show proof of full vaccination.

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and the Stagecoach Festival are set to return in spring of 2022 after the sister festivals were canceled for two years in a row due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Coachella festival will take place on April 15-17 and April 22-24, 2022, while Stagecoach will take place a week later on April 29-May 1.

Travis Scott and Rage Against the Machine have been confirmed as headliners for Coachella, with a third headliner yet to be announced.
