COVID-Safety Measures

The Ojai Music Festival is pleased to welcome you back to in-person concerts and events from September 16 to 19, 2021 for the 75th Festival.

Your health and safety, that of our entire Festival family and our beloved Ojai community, is of paramount importance to us. The Board of Directors has decided to put in place protocols to ensure everyone’s well-being.

Key health and safety measures for the 2021 Ojai Music Festival:

▪        Proof of vaccination will be required for artists, audience members, volunteers, and staff. We do not accept health exemptions or proof of negative testing. At all points of access to Festival concerts and events, you will be asked to show either your physical vaccination card or a photo of your card. We recommend keeping one of these records on your person at all times. 

▪        Universal masking at all Festival concert venues and events, indoors and outdoors, will be required. Masks must fully cover both nose and mouth. Bandanas, gaiters, and masks with external valves are not permitted.

In addition, social distancing signage will encourage safe ingress and egress at concert venues. New hand sanitization stations will be available throughout the Festival campus. Frequently scheduled surface-cleaning of all spaces, including seating areas and restrooms, will occur during the Festival.

We are eager to welcome children under the age of 12 back to Festival concerts in the future.  As soon as health conditions permit, the Festival looks forward to programming special concerts for families and for the Ojai community.

The Festival team developed these updated measures based on consultation with public health professionals and federal, state, county, and local guidelines. Your patience, support, and participation in our efforts to help minimize the risk of exposure and the spread of COVID-19 are deeply appreciated.

Once again, the Festival is pleased to offer live streaming of main Libbey Bowl concerts free of charge for everyone worldwide. If you cannot join in person in Ojai next month for any reason, we invite you to tune into to access concerts and discussions.

If you are sick or believe you may have been exposed to someone with Covid-19 within ten days of your attendance at the Festival, thank you for staying home. Please contact our box office to discuss ticket options: Bryan Lane at [email protected].
