Coachella 2022 will be the first Coachella festival since the pandemic broke out.
The music and arts festival is scheduled to take place next year at Empire Polo Field in Indio, Southern California on April 15-17 and 22-24.
In August, it was announced that all attendees are required to provide proof of full vaccination before they are allowed to enter the venue. That has since changed in an announcement on Tuesday via their Instagram page stating, “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 health policy to allow for: Negative Covid-19 test taken within 72 hours of the event OR proof of full vaccination.”
With the ever-changing Covid-19 situation, it is hard to say if there will be further changes leading up to the festival.
In the past couple of months, California has seen a drop in the number of Covid-19 infections which is largely attributed to the implementation of effective and widespread safety measures. However, there are still many cases and deaths in other states within the U.S.
