Coachella is no longer requiring COVID-19 vaccination to attend its 2022 festival.

Organizers announced in an Instagram Story Tuesday that festival-goers will be allowed entry with either proof of full vaccination or a negative test result obtained within 72 hours of their arrival.

“After seeing first-hand the low transmission data and successful implementation of safety protocols at our other festivals this past month, we feel confident we can update our health policy,” the post reads.

Previously, Coachella organizer Goldenvoice and its parent company, AEG Presents, announced that all of the festivals and concerts it produces would require proof of full vaccination starting October 1.

Coachella 2022 is set to take place April 15-17 and April 22-24. The festival hasn’t been held since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which canceled both the 2020 and 2021 events.
