VAX UP

FOR MUSIC

Live Nation and the live music industry are about uniting people. After nearly two years apart it has been incredible to see artists on the road, fans in the crowd, and crew back to work.

Vaccines are one of the greatest tools for making sure that everyone can continue to enjoy live music together – and Live Nation rolled out new vaccine and testing protocols to support that effort.

As the global leader in live entertainment, Live Nation has been doing shows around the world throughout the summer where we put vaccine and testing protocols into practice, including Lollapalooza, Latitude, Camp Bestival and Wilderness. Data has continued to show the approach successfully allows everyone to enjoy live music, while also inspiring more people to get vaccinated. For example, at Lollapalooza 90% of the festival’s 400,000 attendees showed up fully vaccinated, with 12% of those fans reporting that Lollapalooza was their motivation for getting vaccinated.

We can’t wait to see you back at a show soon.

OUR COMMITMENT

  • Live Nation’s policy is that all of its fully owned & operated venues and festivals in the US will require attendees, artists and staff to be fully vaccinated OR show a negative test result for entry
  • All of our employees will also need to be vaccinated in order to visit one of our events, venues, or offices
  • These policies will apply everywhere possible and permitted by law

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR FANS

  • Fans will be required to show proof of full COVID vaccination OR negative COVID test
  • In order to be considered fully vaccinated, fans need to have their last dose at least two weeks prior to event date
  • Fans can use this helpful resource to locate free testing in their area
  • Vax proof or negative test proof will be checked prior to entry
  • Fans 12 and under OR with health conditions will need to show proof of negative test for entry ticket holders are being alerted directly with the details pertaining to their show
  • Fans should refer to the specific event page on livenation.com for exact details 

LIVE NATION VENUES

We control policies at all of our owned and operated venues and will have the vax / test protocols live at every show beyond October 4th. We’re moving shows to this model as quickly as possible and many will require vax / test before then.

While studies have shown outdoor environments are inherently low risk, Live Nation will still be rolling out enhanced protocols at outdoor venues and festivals out of extra precaution.

MASKS

We encourage all fans who are not fully vaccinated continue to wear face coverings unless they are actively eating, drinking or are otherwise exempt from having to wear a face covering.

ENHANCED CLEANING & SANITATION

Enhanced protocols have been instituted throughout all of our venues. Before and after each show all high touch areas, including seats, handrails, concessions stands, restrooms and merchandise stands will be disinfected.

THIRD PARTY VENUES

Live Nation promotes shows in venues we don’t own, and while we don’t control the protocols in these buildings, we’re sharing these best practices with the industry and are working with artists to utilize these at as many shows as possible

FAQ

  • We are working to ensure we are reopening in the best way possible for staff, artists, crew, fans, and communities at large. We believe it’s much better to take these precautions so we can enjoy shows together than go back to no shows at all.
  • Health Check entry requirements are listed on the event page on livenation.com. Ticket holders will also be reminded of these details in the pre-event emails they get ahead of the show.
  • For events that may update health requirements after you have purchased your ticket, ticket holders will receive an updated notification alerting them to the change in entry requirement.
  • A PCR or antigen COVID-19 test will be accepted – please be sure to bring printed proof of your negative test result, dated and time-stamped.
  • Proof of full vaccination requires the last vaccination dose to be administered at least two weeks prior to the event date. If your dose is from a vaccine series that requires two doses, full vaccination status requirement would be met only 14 days after the second dose. For those guests who have only received the first of two doses, proof of a negative COVID-19 diagnostic test will be required, and taken within 48-72 hours prior to the event date, depending on event. 
  • This may vary by state, so be sure to check the event details page for Health Check and Covid-19 testing requirements for your specific event.
  • For events that require proof of a negative COVID-19 diagnostic test, most events are requiring the test to be taken within 72 hours prior to the event date. Check the event details page for Health Check and Covid-19 testing requirements for your specific event.
  • No. You will simply show your proof of a negative COVID-19 test result or full vaccination prior to entry. This information will not be collected or stored in any way. If you attend another show in the future you will need to bring your current verification info with you again.
  • When an event requires proof of a negative COVID-19 test or proof of vaccination, any unvaccinated fans under 12 years of age will be required to provide printed proof of a negative COVID-19 diagnostic test within 72 hours prior to entering the venue. Check the event details page for Health Check and Covid-19 testing requirements for your specific event.
  • When an event requires proof of a negative COVID-19 test or proof of vaccination, unvaccinated fans with a valid medical restriction will be required to provide printed proof of a negative COVID-19 diagnostic test prior to entering the venue.
  • Please note this won’t apply if a show is mandating proof of vaccine only.
