Two major music festivals are dropping all of their COVID-19 rules.
Last fall, concert organizers had announced that vaccinations were not required to attend the festival. This week they announced that attendees will not need to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test, nor will they be required to wear a mask, NBC News reported.
Stagecoach Festival organizers announced the change on Twitter, saying that they are abiding by local guidelines.
Goldenvoice, the promoter for both Stagecoach and Coachella, said on the Coachella website, “There is no guarantee, express or implied, that those attending the festival will not be exposed to Covid-19,” The New York Times reported.
The group said the rule could change “in accordance with applicable public health conditions.”
The concert industry is still building back after almost two years of no, or few, shows due to the coronavirus pandemic. Coachella was canceled in 2020 and 2021, the Times reported.
Coachella is scheduled to run from April 15 to 17 and April 22 to 24 in Indio, California, with Billie Eilish, Harry Styles and Megan Thee Stallion among the performers.

The Stagecoach Festival will also be held in Indio from April 29 to May 1. Carrie Underwood, Tanya Tucker and Thomas Rhett are set to perform.
