Corona measures

Access to the festival

In order to gain access to the festival, you must

  • be able to present a proof (COVID Safe Ticket or a Digital Covid Certificate for people who do not reside in Belgium)
  • OR in possession of a vaccination certificate and therefore fully vaccinated + 2 weeks
  • OR in possession of a negative PCR test taken 48 hours before the day of the event at the earliest.
  • OR in possession of a negative RAT taken at the earliest 24 hours before the day of the event.
  • OR in possession of a recovery certificate with a period of validity starting 10 days after the date of the first positive PCR test and ending 180 days after the date of that first positive test.

You may present your Covid Safe certificate either printed or digital.

A self test will not be accepted!

When scanning your Covid Safe certificate you will also need to provide an identity document to verify the certificate is yours. This should be an identity document with biometric data. A driving licence is also allowed.
The proof must be submitted every festival day. It is your own responsibility to present a Covid Safe Ticket or other official proof. The organisation will scan the QR code of the Covid Safe Ticket every day at the entrance to check whether you are “covid safe”.

The festival organisation itself does not provide for testing of its visitors.

 

Are you from outside the European Union?

Make sure your ticket can be scanned with the European CovidSafe app. For this you can contact your personal physician and request that your certificate is registered in the belgian system.

 

 

Corona

Where can I get tested?

In the test centres or at the pharmacy. Make an appointment in time. If you live near the festival, you can go to the Antwerp test centre which has a capacity of 4000 tests per day.

Do you accept a test taken at the pharmacy?
You can also have a test taken at a pharmacy, this will be automatically registered in your Covid Safe Ticket app.
Are there any quick tests for visitors?
There will be no quick tests for visitors at the entrance of the festival. Every visitor will have to be tested beforehand if they are not already fully vaccinated.
Do I have to wear a mouth mask as a visitor?
It is compulsory to wear a mouth mask when queuing at the entrance for the Covid Safe ticket control. At the festival site, visitors are not obliged to wear a mask. Every visitor has to present a Covid Safe ticket every day. However, if you feel safer wearing a mask, you are free to do so.
Will there be enough space to have social distancing?
There is more freedom, so also the freedom to do what you feel good and safe with. We respect everyone’s choice. There is enough space on the terrain for those who feel better to keep their social distancing. After all, we want to enjoy music together, without worries! You can enjoy the performances together, close by or at a distance.
Why is Jazz Middelheim the first festival that can go on without corona restrictions?
Audience research shows that a large part of the festival audience belongs to the age group that is already fully vaccinated and therefore protected. Jazz Middelheim does not foresee overnight stays on the festival grounds. Visitors go home every evening and can therefore take care of their own coronatest at their place of residence. This way the pressure on the testing capacity is spread over a large region.
Do I need a Covid Safe proof for my children?
Every visitor from the age of 12 needs to show a Covid Safe proof to be allowed to enter the festival grounds. There are no exceptions.
Are lockers provided at the festival?
Small backpacks and bags are allowed but can be checked extensively at the entrance. There are no lockers on the site. So don’t make it too hard for yourself and don’t lug it around too much.
Can I chat during the concerts?
Out of respect for other visitors and music lovers, we recommend keeping it as quiet as possible during the concerts. Between concerts it is of course allowed to have a chat with each other.
Are children also welcome?
Children are certainly welcome. Children up to 3 years old can come for free. A special rate of € 8 applies up to the age of 12.

Can my vouchers be exchanged?
Covid-19 has made sure that no festival could take place in the way it was planned. That is why the festivals were given the opportunity to convert the purchased tickets for this year into vouchers. This regulation is applied by all Belgian music festivals, and it has also already been ratified in a ministerial order to protect the festival sector and the music industry as a whole.
