We’ve redesigned Hinterland to be socially distanced with reduced attendance and guidelines in place to make it a safe, responsible experience for everyone involved.
These protocols are based on the COVID-19 infection levels and vaccination rates we are experiencing right now. If those variables change and guidance from the CDC, state and local health departments are adjusted, we will reexamine the capacity restrictions and procedures.
A limited number of tickets will be made available to allow for groups and individuals to be spaced appropriately. The capacity restrictions will also be met with an increase in bathrooms and food vendors to decrease lines, as well as an additional entrance and exit to the festival grounds to assist with spacing out attendees. All camping areas will have a reduction in capacity and an expanded footprint to allow for more spacing. We’ve also added a new reserved tent camping option if you’d like to reserve a specific plot.
Per the latest updates from the CDC and health officials, masks should continue to be worn at large outdoor events for individuals who are not vaccinated. We recommend attendees follow the mask guidelines that apply to their individual health situation. Learn more: cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/participate-in-activities.html
A high priority is being placed on robust sanitation procedures. High contact areas will be cleaned regularly and touchless hand sanitation stations will be located throughout the festival grounds and camping areas.
Attendees will be able to get their wristbands the week leading up to the festival to shorten the lines entering the festival grounds. Temperature checks may be required upon arrival to Hinterland. More details on these protocols will be made available prior to the event.
Hinterland 2021 is only possible with all attendees committing to safety. Additional staff will be on hand to help enforce guidelines. Please be prepared to be mindful and respectful of those around you.
While this year’s festival will look different, we are ecstatic at the thought of bringing you the joy of live music again.
