It’s simple: We trust health care professionals. The health of our community is our first priority. The safest way to enjoy live music right now is to be vaccinated against COVID-19. To ensure a safe event and a lasting tradition, we ask that all attendees (with the exception of children under 2) be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and/or provide negative Covid-19 test results within 72 hours of arrival at the festival. Vaccination status and test results must be verified through CrowdPass
