Earlier this year, it was announced that New York City’s popular EDM festival Electric Zoo will be returning this September 3-5 at Randall’s Island after being forced to cancel their 2020 event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now the festival has announced that it will be making its return along with new COVID-related policies.
Among the new policies, the festival will be requiring attendees to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test within 72 hours before showing up. This is to be for all three days of the festival. According to the festival, proving you are fully vaccinated means that you must show proof of at least one dose of the COVID vaccine. Electric Zoo’s official health, safety and entry requirement page on their website states, “Proof of one Covid-19 vaccination dose is acceptable meaning you can get your first dose the same day you attend the festival to enter as a vaccinated guest.” For unvaccinated individuals, the website states, “Proof of a negative test can be shown through a printed copy of your result or with a digital test result saved to your phone.”
Electric Zoo also states that on-site testing will be available to those who show up with no proof of a negative test or vaccination. Prices for the testing will start at $99+ per test.
The festival’s website also states that, although masks will not be required, they are encouraged for all guests. Masks will also be available for free at the festival.
