Festivals have returned in full force, in 2021. This is after unfortunately experiencing postponements and cancelations in 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Some of the major festivals that bounced back this year, have been Rolling Loud, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza, and more.
Coachella unfortunately canceled their festival in 2020, and surprisingly, in 2021, as well. They have been making preparations for 2022, as these include COVID-19 rules. In August, they initially announced that proof of vaccination or negative COVID tests, are required to enter.
Now, Coachella is updating these rules, as vaccine mandates are no longer required. The negative COVID tests will still be in place, though. The festival took to social media to release a statement, on these new protocols.
“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.”
The 2020 Coachella performers originally included Travis Scott, Frank Ocean, Lana Del Rey, Calvin Harris, Summer Walker, Megan Thee Stallion, and more. It’s unclear at this point exactly how many of the artists from the original lineups, for 2022.
