WASTELAND WEEKEND 2021 IS A GO!

WASTELAND WEEKEND 2021 IS A GO!

As of today, April 7th, 2021, we are proud and excited to confirm that YES, Wasteland Weekend 2021 will be going forward as planned.

The Governor of California has announced that all residents over the age of 16 will be eligible for vaccination, and the entire state economy is planned to be reopened by June 15th.

Wasteland Weekend is still over five months away, we feel like we are in an excellent position to plan for the event to go ahead.

CURRENTLY, VACCINATIONS WILL BE REQUIRED FOR ALL ATTENDEES.
All attendees will need to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination to enter the property.
No exceptions.

We plan to use the verification system that our ticketing company Growtix and many other businesses and events are setting up to use: IBM Digital Health Pass.

THE DIGITAL HEALTH PASS SYSTEM IS NOT FULLY LIVE YET (EVEN THOUGH YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THE APP) SO DON’T WORRY ABOUT HOW TO USE IT YET. WE WILL POST FULL INFO ON THAT LATER (WHEN IT BECOMES AVAILABLE). FOR NOW, YOU MAY WANT TO JUST COORDINATE WITH YOUR PRIMARY CARE PROVIDER TO MAKE SURE THAT YOUR COVID VACCINATION IS IN YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS.


We expect that there would be some who don’t like this decision. We think it’s the best way to keep everyone safe at our event. You are welcome to disagree and stay home or do something else with your time. We won’t take it personally.
Please be aware that we will likely require proof of vaccination for our 2022 events as well. After that, we’ll see what the global pandemic situation looks like and go from there.


As for other pandemic-related requirements for the event, we will be working with the state and county to find out what we may need to do (such as possible mask requirements) and we will be posting that info as we get it. As we know, a lot can change over 5 months, and we will always put the health and safety of our attendees first, but we’re optimistic that this positive trend will continue changing things for the better.

Want to come to Wasteland this year? Great! We want to see all of you back happy and healthy – So get your vaccine!

 

We look forward to having a fully-vaccinated population at our outdoor event. And for once, the wind will be a bonus (creating even safer conditions)!

 

Tickets are ON SALE NOW (and have been) and volunteer, performer, and tribe theme zone apps are planned to go live this month as well.
Welcome back, Wastelanders.
