ACL Festival Health Policy

A printed copy of a negative COVID-19 test result will be required to attend ACL Festival 2021.  The negative COVID-19 printed test result must be obtained within 72 hours (3 days) of attending ACL Festival.  Patrons who are fully vaccinated may show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination instead of proof of negative test.  Information related to masks will be released closer to the festival dates. 

A person is considered fully vaccinated 14 days after the second shot of Pfizer/Moderna or single shot of J&J.  For example, the last possible date to get your second shot for entry on Friday, October 1 would be September 17.  Please note that vaccination is not required to attend ACL Festival. 

If you have questions about the COVID-19 vaccines or need resources to find a vaccination location near you, please check out www.vaccinefinder.org.
