Following COVID-19-related cancellation, the announced main names 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 the deaths of 10 people.

The event was originally postponed to March 2020. Festival organizers tried to push the festival to October 2020, but the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic led to its final cancellation. It marked the first time Coachella had been canceled directly in 20 years, and after the cancellation, AEG initiated a series of redundancies, leave, reduced working hours and pay cuts. Coachella was then moved to April 2021 before being canceled again in January 2021 due to ongoing concerns about coronavirus.

Back in October, the Coachella and and Stagecoach festivals announced that they would no longer require full vaccination for participants at the 2022 festival. “After first seeing the low transmission data and the successful implementation of safety protocols at our other festivals last month, we feel confident that we can update our health policy to allow: Negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours after the event OR proof of full vaccination, “the organizers wrote on social media. The festival’s parent company AEG had previously issued a nationwide vaccine mandate at all its events and facilities.

Coachella 2019 was led by Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino and Tame Impala. See again “What happens when a music festival is canceled due to Coronavirus?” on the field, and stay tuned for Pitchfork’s full coverage of Coachella 2022.
