Both Coachella and Stagecoach are rescinding all requirements for negative Covid-19 test or vaccination requirements. The festivals however, do encourage face masks…for the dust.
Stagecoach, which will be held after Coachella’s two-weekend run at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, posted on social media Tuesday that the country festival had updated its attendance policies to reflect local guidelines. The same safety guidelines are outlined on Coachella’s website, though the fellow Goldenvoice-produced festival did not post about the lack of COVID-19-related precautions on its social media accounts. Both events clarify that safety guidelines can change at any time based on federal or local mandates or artist or promoter instructions. Those changes could come in the form of limited capacity, vaccine requirements or other protective measures.
The festivals’ lack of safety precautions contrasts with the guidelines put forth by parent company AEG Presents, which requires full proof of vaccination for its owned and operated festivals, venues and events.
