Mexico City.- The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival announced that it will no longer be mandatory for its attendees to be vaccinated against the coronavirus in order to enter.
The Festival assured that the vaccination certificate is no longer mandatory, and that attendees will be able to enter with a negative Covid-19 test within 72 hours after arrival.
“After seeing first-hand the low data transmission and the successful implementation of security protocols at our recent festivals, we are confident that we can safely update our policy for Coachella,” according to the report.
The live events company behind Coachella, assured that attendees can submit a negative test or their full vaccination schedule.
“We have come to the conclusion that as a market leader, it is up to us to take a real position on vaccination status,” said Jay Marciano, AEG’s chief operating officer and president and CEO of AEG Presents at the time.
“Just a few weeks ago, we were optimistic about where our business and our country were heading. The Delta variant, combined with vaccinations, is pushing us in the wrong direction again.”
The Coachella Festival will take place April 15-17 and April 22-24.
