After COVID-19-related cancellation, the announced headliners for Coachella 2020 included Frank Ocean, Rage Against the Machine, and Travis Scott. Ocean will instead headline Coachella 2023. Scott’s headliner status was called into question after the Astroworld 2021 tragedy that led to 10 people’s deaths.
The event was originally postponed in March 2020. Festival organizers attempted to push the festival to October 2020, but the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic led to its eventual cancellation. It marked the first time Coachella had been canceled outright in 20 years, and following the cancellation, AEG initiated a string of layoffs, furloughs, reduced hours, and salary cuts. Coachella was then rescheduled to April 2021 before being once again canceled in January 2021 due to ongoing coronavirus concerns.
Back in October, Coachella and Stagecoach festivals announced they would no longer require full vaccination for attendees at the 2022 festival. “After seeing first-hand the low transmission data and successful implementation of safety protocols at our other festivals this past month, we feel confident that we can update our health policy to allow for: Negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the event OR proof of full vaccination,” organizers wrote on social media. The festival’s parent company AEG had previously issued a nationwide vaccine mandate at all of its events and facilities.
