This now means that attendees don’t have to be vaccinated, test negative, or wear masks to attend the festivals.

“As we prepare to spend an incredible weekend in the desert together we are announcing that there will be no vaccination, testing or masking requirements at Stagecoach 2022, in accordance with local guidelines,” Stagecoach organizers tweeted.

Coachella also updated their website to state that COVID safety measures won’t be required at their festival.

Organizers did note that the events will take place with local public health conditions in mind, which could change at any time.

Also on Coachella‘s website, the health and safety page cautions that “there is no guarantee, express or implied, that those attending the festival will not be exposed to COVID-19.”

California’s rules for outdoor events – like music and food festivals – don’t require proof of being fully vaccinated or pre-entry negative COVID test results, though it is “strongly recommended.”

Also according to the California Department of Public Health, unvaccinated attendees of outdoor events are only required to wear masks if they enter indoor area like restrooms, retail shops, and concession stands.

The 2022 Coachella Music Festival is set to take place on April 15-17 and April 22-24, while the 2022 Stagecoach is scheduled to take place April 29 through May 1.

If you missed it, one of the Coachella’s headliners recently threatened to pull out of the festival.
