Organizers of the long-sold-out 2021 Inkcarceration Festival announced this week that it is requiring all attendees to the event, including artists, staff, and crew, to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test.
A deadline has been set for later this month for vaccinations — August 26 (campers) and 27 (non-campers).
In its statement, the following additional guidelines were shared:
For fans who are not fully vaccinated, a negative COVID-19 test result must be obtained within 72 hours of the first day of coming into the campgrounds or festival grounds.
Masks will be required in any indoor space, regardless of whether or not vaccinations have been completed. That includes the Reformatory building, The Tattoo Experience, and Blood Prison. A strong suggestion is made to all fans to wear a mask in outdoor locations as well.
Hand sanitizer stations will be on site, with additional cleaning in “high touch” areas and a cashless option for food and merch purchases.
Additional information on the above and a number of additional requirements can be accessed here.
The event is set for September 10-12.
In an Instagram post (see below), the producing company hinted that there may be additional decisions reached in the coming days about Inkcarceration.
