Travis Scott was removed as a headliner in December, following the Astroworld tragedy. The hip-hop artist was set to headline alongside Rage Against The Machine.
Coachella had changed its policy on entry to the festival so that it’s no longer a requirement to be inoculated against COVID-19 to attend. The update on their website read: “After seeing first-hand 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 for Coachella that allows for [a] negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of the event OR proof of full vaccination.” However, with the surge in Omicron cases, it’s not known if the festival will continue with its current set of dates or if entry requirements will change.
Coachella hasn’t taken place since 2019 due to the global pandemic.
