Porter Robinson’s Second Sky Music Festival will now be held at the Oakland Arena Grounds and is requiring proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Porter Robinson’s Second Sky Festival will be moving from Berkeley’s César E. Chávez Park to the Oakland Arena Grounds. According to official Second Sky social media accounts, “significant road construction” is planned for the area around César Chávez Park and there have been “additional challenges to producing a safe event.”
The Oakland Arena Grounds are 20 minutes from the original location and are accessible by the Bay Area Rapid Transit or BART system. The official statement reassures fans that the team is working hard and “investing a ton of additional resources to transform the space into something very special and memorable.” All tickets purchased for Second Sky will be valid at the new venue on September 18-19.
Second Sky Festival is the next to join a growing list of events announcing COVID-19 protocols for attendees. They posted a second update soon after the news of the venue change that proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test result within 72 hours of the event will be required for everyone going. A physical copy of a COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card issued by the CDC or digital copies/images of your card will be accepted. If you choose to present a digital copy, please make sure to include the front and back of the card with all details legible. A government-issued photo ID that matches the details indicated on the proof will also be required.
Masks are also “strongly recommended” regardless of vaccination status while not actively eating or drinking. For more information on the venue changes, ticketing, or any other questions, visit the Second Sky FAQ page.
