The Coachella and Stagecoach will require fans to show proof of vaccination in order to attend the music festivals. Per ABC 7, the festival organizers announced the news on Thursday, August 12.
"We have come to the conclusion that, as a market leader, it was up to us to take a real stand on vaccination status," said Jay Marciano, chairman and CEO of AEG Presents.
"Just a few weeks ago, we were optimistic about where our business, and country, were heading. The Delta variant, combined with vaccine hesitancy, is pushing us in the wrong direction again. We realize that some people might look at this as a dramatic step, but it's the right one. We also are aware that there might be some initial pushback, but I'm confident and hopeful that, at the end of the day, we will be on the right side of history and doing what's best for artists, fans, and live event workers,'' he added.
Coachella is set to take place on April 15-17 and April 22-24 of 2022. While Stagecoach will be on April 29 to May 1, 2022.
