Coachella & Goldenvoice Shared that Attendees Will be Required to Show Full Proof of Vaccination

Music company AEG Presents is seeking to ensure that customers at its venues and festivals are not infected by COVID-19.

In Thursday’s announcement, Coachella and Goldenvoice (AEG Presents) shared that participants will be required to present a complete vaccination certificate before participating in their activities starting on October 1.

"Goldenvoice will require proof of full vaccination for concertgoers and event staff at all of our venues and festivals," the statement read. "The vaccination policy, limited only as required by law, will be in full effect nationwide no later than October 1, 2021."

Until then, fans will be able to present a vaccination certificate or a negative COVID test within 72 hours of the performance date.

The venues include El Rey Theater, Terminal 5, Fonda Theater, Regent Ballroom, Webster Concert Hall and Roxy Theater. AEG is also responsible for organizing festivals such as Stagecoach, Buckeye Country Superfest, Camp Flog Gnaw, Day N Vegas, Firefly Music Festival, Hangouts Music Festival and New Orleans Jazz Festival.

"Just a few weeks ago, we were optimistic about where our business, and country, were heading," AEG Presents CEO Jay Marciano said in a release announcing the changes. "The Delta variant, combined with vaccine hesitancy, is pushing us in the wrong direction again."

Last week, Variety reported that Live Nation will allow artists to determine their requirements on the venue.

Several artists outlined similar policies in their shows. Jason Isbell asked fans to present a vaccination certificate or negative test before the show.

"I'm all for freedom, but I think if you're dead, you don't have any freedoms at all so it's probably important to stay alive before you start questioning your liberty," he said. "It's life and then it's liberty and then it's the pursuit of happiness. Those are in order of priority."
