Coachella officials have relaxed their regulations regarding COVID-19 vaccines.

Bosses at AEG Presents, the live events company behind Coachella, previously implemented rules requiring all ticket holders to be vaccinated before entering their events.

Less than two weeks after it was implemented on 1 October, a revised statement on the Coachella website states that, instead of the jab, attendees can enter with proof of a negative COVID test within 72 hours of arrival.

"After seeing first-hand the low transmission data and successful implementation of safety protocols at our festivals recently " we feel confident that we can safely update our policy for Coachella," the post read.

Back in August, Jay Marciano, chief operating officer of AEG and chairman and CEO of AEG Presents, said upon announcing the vaccination regulations: "We have come to the conclusion that, as a market leader, it was up to us to take a real stand on vaccination status.

"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."

Coachella will take place from 15 to 17 and 22 to 24 April 2022, with Rage Against the Machine and Travis Scott confirmed as headline performers.
