After seeing first-hand the low transmission data alongside the rising vaccination rate of eligible Americans, we feel confident that we can safely update our policy for Desert Air that allows for negative covid test taken within 72 hours of the event OR proof of full vaccination.
Our Health & Safety policy & FAQ's HERE are regularly updated in consideration for our fans, artists and event workers based on our ever-developing circumstances. Plans and mandates may continue to change. We will continue to update this page with developments and more details closer to the festival.
In order to pick up wristband for entry, all attendees must:
Provide printed or digital proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. “Full vaccination” means 14 days or more following the final dose of a US FDA approved or WHO recognized vaccine against COVID-19 (e.g., Moderna, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca/SK Bioscience, Serum Institute of India/COVISHIELD and Vaxzevria, Sinopharm, and Sinovac).
A printed or digital negative COVID-19 test result (molecular, PCR or antigen) that was administered by an official testing center. Test results must display name, result, and timestamp in order to be accepted. Name on the test result must match the Government issued ID of the attendee to gain entry. The test must be taken no earlier than 72 hours (3 days) prior to your first entry into the festival. (e.g for entering the event on Fri, December 10th, the test must be taken on Tues, December 7th or later.) If entering the festival on Friday, negative result will be honored for both event days. Home testing kit results will not be accepted for entry.
Your photo ID must match the name on your proof of vaccination or negative test documentation.
ON-SITE/NEARBY COVID TESTING:
COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. There is an inherent and elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place or place where people are present and there is no guarantee, express or implied, that those attending the festival will not be exposed to COVID-19.
All attendees agree to follow festival policies (including health and safety policies) and posted instructions while at the festival. According to the CDC, older adults and people of all ages with serious underlying medical conditions may be at higher risk of death or severe illness from COVID-19. All attendees should evaluate their risk in determining whether to attend the festival. By entering the festival, attendees voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and confirm that they will adhere to local quarantine mandates and the CDC quarantine requirements, available here.
