Goldenvoice reverses vaccine mandate for Coachella & Stagecoach

Both are set for April 2022

Goldenvoice Entertainment, the promoters of Coachella and Stagecoach, have reversed a vaccine mandate for attendees for 2022. The festivals posted the updated health policy on social media on Tuesday (Oct 12th).

“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,” promoters share on each festival’s socials.

Coachella is set for April 15-17 & April 22-24, 2022 while Stagecoach is scheduled for April 29-May 1, 2022 in Indio, CA.

Both festivals were canceled for a second year in 2021 due to the pandemic after the Riverside County Health Department feared an uptick in COVID-19 cases. Both attract hundreds of thousands of attendees from many countries, including several disproportionately afflicted by the worldwide COVID-19 epidemic.

In March of 2020, Goldenvoice postponed both events from three weekends in April to three in October 2020 due to COVID-19. Both were canceled in June with hopes of returning in April 2021 with a capacity of 60%.

Frank Ocean, Rage Against the Machine and Travis Scott were set to headline Coachella in 2020. Thomas Rhett, Carrie Underwood and Eric Church were set to headline Stagecoach last year.
