Farm Aid is pleased to be able to return to a live event this year, but the COVID-19 pandemic is far from over and is rapidly changing. Venue and Farm Aid staff are staying up to date on the latest CDC guidance and industry best practices to limit the transmission of COVID-19. We are taking various precautions, including seeking advice from public health experts, enhanced sanitation protocols and streamlining operations to prevent unnecessary crowding. We will monitor the situation closely and will update protocols as warranted leading up to the festival. By applying for a credential, you are agreeing to adhere to our safety guidance, even if it changes on site. Those who are not able to adhere to the guidance will forfeit their credentials for the remainder of the festival.
