Pasquale Rotella announced that events hosted by Insomniac will require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test for the foreseeable future.


As the Delta variant of COVID-19 continues to wreak havoc on communities throughout the United States, those in the live event industry are doing what they can to keep attendees as safe as possible. AEG and Live Nation dropped their own details for future access to the events and venues earlier this month – and Insomniac Events implemented similar measures for Crush SF and Beyond Wonderland SoCal.

While those two events hosted by Insomniac were addressed, questions still loomed about others such as Escape Halloween, EDC Las Vegas, Nocturnal Wonderland, and the many other festivals that they have announced to take place this year. Today, Pasquale Rotella took to social media to give attendees the answers they sought by announcing that all of their future events and festivals will require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test for the “foreseeable future.”

Much akin to the measures implemented for Crush SF and Beyond Wonderland SoCal, this means that anyone attending will either need to provide a physical or digital copy of their vaccination card to gain entry to the festival or a negative test result from within 72 hours of doors opening. A photo of said documentation should suffice for entry if you don’t have the physical copy on hand.

The update in policy for future events will begin to roll out soon with more details found on the specific event’s website FAQ and social media pages. It’s also important to note that there may be exceptions to this policy based on local laws, so make sure to check in ahead of each event to make sure you’re in the know before you go.

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