Coachella is set to return to Indio, California for the first time in 3 years over two weekends in April 2022 and the festival has updated their health & safety protocols to now allow for negative COVID-19 tests taken within 72 hours to attend. Previously, proof of vaccination was going to be required to enter the Polo Fields.

The festival made the announcement in an Instagram story on Tuesday and updated their health & safety section on their website to say: "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 negative covid test taken within 72 hours of the event OR proof of full vaccination."

The full lineup for the 2022 festival is still to be announced, but founder Paul Tollett previously said that Rage Against The Machine & Travis Scott will headline after being scheduled to do so in 2020. Frank Ocean will headline in 2023.
