The Coachella festival will not impose the use of masks, nor will it check immunity certificates or coronavirus screening tests, at its next edition, which will run April 15-17 and April 22-24.
The announcement comes days after California authorities modified their public health guidelines, which no longer require—although they recommend—to wear masks or show a certificate of immunity at outdoor mass events, given the drastic drop in the number of contagions and hospitalizations.
Harry Styles, Billie Eilish and Kanye West (now called Ye) are the headliners of Coachella, which will take place over two weekends; April 15-17 and 22-24.
This festival held in Indio (California) is considered one of the most important in the world and takes place specifically in the Coachella Valley (in the Colorado desert), where during two consecutive weekends will also perform a remarkable number of renowned Latin artists such as Karol G, Anitta, Banda MS, Chicano Batman, Grupo Firme, Ed Maverick, Ela Minus, Jessie Reyez, Nathy Peluso, Omar Apollo, Pablo Vittar or Natanael Cano.
Spaniards Cariño and Paco Osuna make up the Hispanic music lineup of a full lineup for the California festival, which will also bring groups such as Swedish House Mafia and 88Rising’s Head In The Clouds Forever, among others, back to Indio’s Empire Polo Club.
