The news comes ahead of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival slated for the weekends of April 15-17 and April 22-24. Stagecoach Country Music Festival will happen the weekend of April 29-May 1.

Organizers said they changed their COVID-19 policies to be in alignment with local guidelines.

“The event shall be presented in accordance with applicable public health conditions as of the date of the event and which may change at any time as determined by federal, state or local government agencies or instrumentalities, artists or the promoter; such requirements may include, without limitation, changes to capacity, attendance procedures and entry requirements, such as proof of vaccination and/or negative COVID-19 test, and other protective measures such as requiring attendees to wear face coverings,'' according to an announcement made on websites for both events Tuesday.

This year’s headliners for the popular festival include Harry Styles, Billie Eilish and Kanye West, who now legally goes by Ye.

Stagecoach will be headlined by Carrie Underwood, Thomas Rhett, and Luke Combs.
