Coachella attendees no longer require a coronavirus vaccine to enter a popular California music festival.
The festival announced a policy change on its website, noting that visitors can log in with a negative proof of COVID test within 72 hours.
“After seeing with our own hands the low data and successful implementation of security protocols at our festivals recently … we are confident that we will safely update our policy for Coachella,” the report said. .
The move is the reverse of an August announcement by AEG Presents behind Coachella, which said all ticket holders should be vaccinated against their events from Oct. 1.
“As a market leader, we have come to the conclusion that we need to look at the vaccination situation from a realistic perspective,” said Jay Marciano, then CEO and CEO and CEO of AEG Presents. .
“A few weeks ago, we looked with hope where our business and our country were going. Along with the hesitation of the vaccine, the Delta option pushed us in the wrong direction again.
Coachella will be held April 15-17 and April 22-24.
