Bonnaroo and Summerfest have announced that attendees must either be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or provide a negative test result.

Both festivals require that those who are not fully vaccinated — i.e. two weeks after the second of the two-jab Pfizer or Moderna shot, or two weeks after the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine — must have obtained a negative test within 72 hours of entering the grounds.

Bonnaroo also “requests” unvaccinated attendees to “wear a mask at all times.” For Summerfest, masks are “recommended” in all indoor spaces on the festival grounds, and for unvaccinated individuals “when attending large gatherings.”

Bonnaroo takes place September 2-5 in Manchester, Tennessee. The lineup includes Foo Fighters, Tame Impala, Mastodon, Incubus, Phoebe Bridgers, Run the Jewels, Dashboard Confessional, Young the Giant, Glass Animals and Brittany Howard.

Milwaukee’s Summerfest is held over three three-day events in September. Headliners include Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer, Guns N’ Roses, Twenty One Pilots, Dave Matthews Band, Rise Against, ZZ Top, Bleachers, Joan Jett, Coheed and Cambria, Black Pumas, and The Struts.
