WHAT ARE THE COVID SAFETY PRECAUTIONS AND ENTRY REQUIREMENTS FOR GONERFEST?
- We take the safety of our guests and our employees, and everyone involved with the festival, very seriously. We want to hold our event as safely as we can. In order to do so, we are following these procedures:
Everyone must show proof of vaccination to enter. Bands included. Either bring your vaccination card or take a picture of it on your phone.
In addition, masks must be worn while at Railgarten in accordance with county mandate.
WILL MASKS BE REQUIRED AT GONERFEST?
Yes. Masks are required at Gonerfest.
I LOST MY WRISTBAND, WHAT DO I DO?
Email Gonerfest@gmail.com and we will arrange to get you a new wristband.
ARE CHILDREN ALLOWED?
Unfortunately, we are only allowing vaccinated people into the festival. If your child is 12 or over and vaccinated, they are welcome to attend with an adult.
I AM VACCINATED, CAN I JUST SHOW MY PAPER CARD OR A PHOTO OF MY VACCINE CARD TO GET IN?
I AM VACCINATED AND HAVE AN APP THAT PROVES I AM VACCINATED. CAN I USE THAT?
We are not up to date on all the different apps from different states. We will try to be ready for a variety of ways that people can prove they are vaccinated, but we are relying on photos of your vaccination card, if not the card itself, to prove vaccination.
I BOUGHT TICKETS OVER A YEAR AGO AND THERE WERE NO VACCINE REQUIREMENTS, WHY DID YOU CHANGE THE RULES?
When we decided to hold Gonerfest, we had hope that COVID was lifting, that people would be vaccinated, and that things would be much more under control than they are now. We are doing all we can to make the festival as safe as possible.
I’M HAVING ISSUES WITH TRANSFERRING MY TICKET TO A DIFFERENT NAME
Please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to help.
THE VACCINE IS A CONSPIRACY, FORKS AND QUARTERS NOW STICK TO PEOPLE'S SKIN BECAUSE THEY ARE MAGNETIC, AND THE TEST WAS CREATED TOO QUICKLY AND IS TOO INVASIVE FOR MY LIKING, WHAT DO I DO?
You should just stay home and protect yourself. And stay off the internet.
A MESSAGE FROM GONER
Let us start by saying thank you for having faith in us to run a safe festival this year. We take safety at the festival very seriously. Everyone’s health is foremost in our minds in all our decisions. Many of us have children or other people among our families and friends who cannot be vaccinated. Even if we are vaccinated, we can spread COVID to these people more susceptible to the virus. We want to keep transmission to a minimum, and create as safe an event as we can.
It is for these reasons that we are requiring proof of vaccination to attend Gonerfest this year, whether it is as a participant, band, or worker.
We have moved all events outside, and masks are required while at Gonerfest.
Thanks for your consideration and patience in all this.
Again, we are offering refunds to anyone who is not comfortable coming this year for whatever reason.
Any questions, please do not hesitate to call or email us.
-Eric / Zac / Gonerfest Crew
