I think I can speak for everybody when I say it’s been a tough couple of years for music festivals.

Everything got cancelled in 2020 due to the heat of the pandemic, and the majority of festivals in 2021 either got postponed, or required proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test.

With that being said, there’s one music festival that’s going completely back to normal in 2022 (after being canceled the previous two years)…

And that’s Stagecoach. 

They announced via their website that festival admissions will not require vaccination, testing, or masks at this year’s show, slated for April 29th through May 1st at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.

“In accordance with current local guidelines, there will be no vaccination, testing or masking requirements at Stagecoach 2022.”

This year’s festival has a stellar list of performers, as it’s co-headlined by Thomas Rhett, Carrie Underwood, and Luke Combs, with other performers like Midland, Tanya Tucker, Charley Crockett, Brothers Osborne, Cody Jinks, Cody Johnson, Margo Price, Zach Bryan, Hailey Whitters, Lainey Wilson, Flatland Cavalry, and so many others.

You still might wanna bring a bandana though… gets dusty out there in the desert.
