Coachella, Stagecoach drop all precautionary COVID-19 measures

Coachella and Stagecoach have announced that they’ll be dropping all of their precautionary COVID-19 regulations at their 2022 festivals.

Stagecoach took to Twitter to announce that they won’t be requiring COVID-19 vaccinations, testing, or masking at its 2022 festival. This policy also extends to Coachella, which is also promoted by Goldenvoice and owned by AEG.

Coachella has yet to officially release a statement on the updates. However, the new COVID-19 policy is on the Health & Safety rules page of their website. It reads, “In accordance with local guidelines, there will be no vaccination, testing or masking requirements at Coachella 2022.”

Despite the lack of precautionary measures, both festivals warn attendees of the dangers of COVID-19.

“COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death,” Coachella’s website reads. “There is an inherent and elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place or place where people are present and there is no guarantee, express or implied, that those attending the festival will not be exposed to COVID-19.”

The change appears to be in response to the state of California loosening its COVID-19 restriction guidelines. Now, masks are only required at certain indoor events. Additionally, proof of vaccination or negative tests are only required for indoor events with more than 1,000 attendees.

Coachella takes place from April 15th to 17th and April 22nd to 24th.
