Bonnaroo Requiring COVID-19 Vaccination Or Negative Test To Attend Festival
The decision comes as "the safety of our patrons and staff" are organizers' "number one priority."
Those attending next month’s Bonnaroo festival will be required to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result obtained with 72 hours to enter the event. Bonnaroo 2021 will be held at The Bonnaroo Farm in Manchester, Tennessee September 2 – 5.
The announcement from Bonnaroo organizers follows similar protocols put in place at other festivals as COVID-19 cases rise again due in large part to the spread of the delta variant. Jason Isbell is among artists requiring proof of vaccination or negative test results at upcoming concerts.
Read a statement from Bonnaroo organizers below:
The safety of our patrons and staff is our number one priority. As such a full COVID-19 vaccination or negative COVID-19 test will be required to attend Bonnaroo 2021.
Bonnaroo strongly encourages vaccination. The last day to receive the second shot of Moderna or Pfizer, or a single dose of Johnson and Johnson is Thursday, August 19th.
For patrons who are not fully vaccinated, a negative COVID-19 test result must be obtained within 72 hours (3 days) of first entering Centeroo. Bonnaroo requests that unvaccinated individuals wear a mask at all times while on The Farm.
Lizzo, Foo Fighters, Tyler The Creator, Tame Impala, My Morning Jacket and Megan Thee Stallion are just a few of the acts set to perform at Bonnaroo next month. The festival is typically held in June but was postponed until Labor Day Weekend due to the pandemic.
