Coachella, Stagecoach to allow negative COVID test for entry to festivals

Coachella and Stagecoach music festival organizers reversed their previous COVID-19 policies last week and will allow unvaccinated fans to attend the shows provided they show proof of a negative test within the prior 72 hours, event organizers said. Previous policy for the two Indio festivals only allowed entry for those who showed proof of full vaccination. “After seeing firsthand the low transmission data and successful implementation of safety protocols at our festivals recently, alongside the rising vaccination rate of eligible Americans, we feel confident that we can safely update our policy that allows for a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of the event or proof of full vaccination,” event organizers said on the Coachella and Stagecoach websites Tuesday, Oct. 12.
