Insomniac’s edition of Crush in San Francisco is set to move forward this month, but you’ll need to be vaccinated or test negative for COVID to attend.


Earlier this summer, Insomniac surprised love-filled ravers in Northern California with the news that Crush San Francisco would be making a return outside of their typical dates surrounding Valentine’s Day. Now set to take place on August 13-14 at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, the upcoming edition is sure to spark some summer lovin’ for anyone who plans to attend and catch sets from some of the scene’s finest.

But there’s a caveat if you’re planning on heading to Crush SF to see artists like Blossom, Dion Timmer, Wuki, Good Times Ahead, and more. Since that news of the event’s return broke back in July, an increasing number of COVID cases has been seen throughout the United States – especially with those who are currently unvaccinated. Many festivals such as Lollapalooza and ARC Music Festival in Chicago, have already begun to implement measures to help prevent the further spread of COVID and keep attendees as safe as possible.

To combat the spread, the city and county of San Francisco have also announced that not only will attendees of Crush SF need to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test within 48 hours of the event, but there will also be a mask requirement in place. Insomniac provided the update earlier today about this change in plans, and those attending can install the Clear Mobile App on their iOS or Android device prior to arrival to receive a proper health pass and ensure quick entry as well. Details on this policy can be found over on the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium website.

Stay tuned for more coverage during festival season as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.
