Festival Safety

Security and safety are of utmost importance. We work hand in hand with law enforcement and public safety agencies to help ensure the safety of our events. Uniformed and plain-clothed security are present throughout the event and are available 24/7 to respond and assist with any safety or security needs.

Some of the security measures you will notice upon your arrival such as bag checks. If you see something, say something. If anything seems out of place or suspicious, please notify the nearest security, medical or general staff member.

COVID-19: We continue to monitor the evolving health mandates and regulations. For the most current COVID-19 information relating to the festival, please refer to the COVID-19 section below, which will be updated as the festival approaches. While safety is our top priority, the risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present.

Medical Emergencies

If you or someone you know needs medical assistance at the festival, flag down nearby emergency staff or go to the nearest First Aid location. A dedicated First Aid location is available at every venue.

First Aid locations are safe spaces. Be honest with emergency personnel. They are there to help you, not to get you in trouble.


We will continue to monitor the situation around us and will update this webpage as we learn more.

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.

I understand that the State of California strongly recommends that I either wear a face covering, be fully vaccinated or obtain a negative COVID-19 test in the 72 hours prior to attending the event for which I purchase a ticket. I understand that while at the event I must follow the California Department of Public Health’s Guidance for the Use of Face Coverings, available at https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/guidance-for-face-coverings.aspx.
