Return of Coachella music festival prompted by falling Covid-19 cases in US

One of the world’s largest music festivals has announced it will return in 2022 after being forced to cancel for the last two years because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Coachella music festival in Southern California will return in April 2022, organiser Goldenvoice announced yesterday.

The iconic music festival attracts half a million fans to an open-air site in the desert but no performers for 2022 have been announced yet.

The rising confidence for event organisers follows a fast vaccination rollout in the US followed by a decline in cases.
